The Moody Church has a promise statement: The Moody Church is a trusted place where anyone can connect with God and others. And we seek to fulfill this promise statement by providing ministries and areas for involvement in four categories: Gathering, Connecting, Learning, and Serving. Though the categories are distinct, they are entwined with each other and flow from one to the next in a continuous cycle to help people grow in their faith and their walk with the Lord.
When you read the book of Acts, you find the early church gathering together for fellowship and ministry. In the face of persecution, sickness and personal need, they knew that meeting together for mutual support, prayer and especially worship would help them stay strong.
We follow their example today, believing that we cannot grow in our faith individually unless we meet collectively. There are compelling reasons why the New Testament says, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10: 24-25).
Each of our three services—Sunday Morning, Sunday Evening and Wednesday Prayer—is as distinctly unique as the over 70 nationalities represented in our congregation, but all have the same purpose: to strengthen our walk with the Lord as we honor and learn about Him.
Connecting with other believers enhances our spiritual growth as we form relationships and establish accountability with each other. We offer groups of various sizes and at various times, so that as many people as possible will have the chance to find involvement and community with others.

Our spiritual growth occurs in direct proportion to our knowing, understanding, and applying the Bible. The more you know about God, the more you understand His Word, the deeper your faith becomes and the more your spiritual growth will blossom. Through each of our Ministries, TMC Communities, and Equipping classes, we provide our members and regular attenders the tools to learn and grow in their walk with the Lord. Whether you’re curious about Christianity, a new believer, or have been walking with the Lord for years, The Moody Church offers many ways for you to learn about our Lord and connect into our church. To find out more about any of the courses we provide, please click on the Learning tab in the navigation bar.
The Moody Church offers many opportunities to serve, not only at the church on Sundays, but throughout Chicagoland and even the world. Whether you’re technically oriented, an artist, have the gift of compassion, or simply love to lend a hand, there’s always some place you can minister to others in the body of Christ. For more information on various areas in which you can help, please click on the Serving tab in the navigation bar.
