Our Purpose

Our purpose is to evangelize, edify, and equip people to be true worshipers and effective representatives of Jesus Christ so that we all may “stand confident and unashamed before Him at His coming.” (1 John 2:28, NIV)

Our Vision

Our vision is to be known in Chicago as a caring, culturally diverse community that seeks to transform lives through a clear witness for Christ, quality ministries, and the lifestyle of each believer.


In pursuit of this Vision we’re seeking to keep the promise that The Moody Church is a trusted place where anyone can connect with God and others.

Core Values

Every congregation should know why it exists, which is expressed by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4:12-13: “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ might be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”


Values are the distinctive characteristics of a church; they are the standards it uses to ensure that it stays true to its goals and vision.We believe our core values should be explicitly made known to all who worship and serve with us so that we can share common priorities, a common commitment, and a common heart for ministry. To this end, we adhere to the following core values in all areas of church life:

  • Trusting in salvation through God’s Son and in the authority of God’s Word.
  • Loving God with all our hearts and loving people as ourselves.
  • Praying in the power and leading of God’s Spirit.
  • Sharing the life-changing truth of the Gospel.

What do we believe?

We are a non-denominational church rooted in the absolute authority of scripture. A full description of our statement of faith is available here.
