WHO WE ARE

ABOUT OUR CHURCH


BRIEF FROM HISTORY

The history of the United Evangelical Church goes back more than forty-four years to a group of faithful servants in the Lord who began their service in Chicago. This happened in the early seventies with pastor Farah Fakhoury, pastor Isa Fakhoury and Dr. Sweilem Henein.  The church has moved around between different places throughout these years.

In 1993, the church moved to its current location in the city of Des Plaines in the Northwest of Chicago. The Lord has blessed us significantly in that He enlarged our territory. Not only through the main worship hall and surrounding buildings but also through the growth of various church ministries which include worship, fellowship, outreach, prayer meetings and more.

We welcome you to join us!


تاريخ الكنيسة الملخص

يرجع تاريخ الكنيسة الإنجيلية المتحدة بشيكاجو إلى أكثر من أربع وأربعين عاماً حيث بدأ مجموعة من خدام الرب الأمناء الخدمة بمدينة شيكاجو في أوائل السبعينات، منهم القس/ فرح فاخوري، القس/ عيسى فاخوري والدكتور القس/ سويلم سيدهم. ولقد تنقلت الكنيسة خلال هذه السنين بين أماكن مختلفة.

في عام 1993 انتقلت الكنيسة إلى موقعها الحالي في مدينة ديسبلينس شمال غرب شيكاجو. ولقد باركنا الرب بأن وسع تخومنا ليس فقط من خلال مبنى العبادة الرئيسى والمباني الملحقة لمدارس الأحد والشباب، ولكن أيضاً من خلال خدمات الكنيسة المختلفة التي تشمل العبادة والشركة، اجتماع الصلاة، اجتماعات الشباب ومدارس الأحد والسيدات، بالإضافة إلى المؤتمرات والدورات التدريبية.

نحن نرحب بكم أن تشتركوا معنا في العبادة واجتماعات الكنيسة المختلفة. للمزيد من المعلومات عن اجتماعات وخدمات الكنيسة، الرجاء زيارة المواقع المختلفة على الانترنت.


OUR VISION

To train and equip disciples to grow in their relationship and ministry for Christ with sound biblical teaching. (Colossians 1:28, Ephesians 4:11-12)

To be a people of prayer and intercession. (Matthew 21:13, 1 Timothy 2:1-4)

To proclaim the Gospel message to a lost world. (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8)

Our vision is that the name of Christ may be glorified!

To imitate the church model as presented in the book of Acts in their sacrificial love, service and care for one another. (Acts 2:42-46, Acts 4:-32-34, John 13:35)


OUR MISSION

Our mission statement can be summed up in one word: REACH.

Reaching Up | Loving God:
Vertical reach to touch God. We must have Him as our first-love (Revelation 2:4).

Reach In | Serving Each Other:
Horizontal reach to others. We glorify God by loving each other. (John 13:35)

Reach Out | Changing The World:
Outward reach to the world. Jesus commanded us to go into the world and to make disciples. (Matthew 28:18-20, Romans 10:14-17)

WHO IS THE LEAD PASTOR?


Dr. Wafik Wahba has been the Lead Pastor here since 2007. He is looking for ways to build bridges to a cynical and jaded society.
One of distinct thing about our church is what we’re an all -generations community. there’s a place for you here. Tracing UEC’s history takes us back to the heart of our mission—to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication.
