Welcome and NEXT
Are you new, visiting, or just curious about who Missio Dei is and how to get involved? NEXT is the place to find out about our church family and how we envision our life together as a community of Jesus. Join us for NEXT, the 1st and 3rd Sunday every month after the gathering in the overflow room!
Who We Are
Missio Dei Chicago began in 2008 with a heart to see people find a love and passion for Jesus and His work of renewal in our world. In light of that desire, our mission is very simple...make disciples of Jesus. This is our mission because it is JESUS’ mission. This is...Missio Dei.
We are convinced that the GOSPEL changes people, and that this change happens best in the context of relationships. For this reason, Missio Dei is a church of GOSPEL communities doing life together throughout the week. Then on Sundays, these GOSPEL Communities come together to worship as neighborhood congregations in five different locations.
In our Sunday Gatherings and GOSPEL Communities, you will find those who have journeyed with JESUS for a long time, those who have strayed from Him and returned, and those who are just now learning there is a journey to be had. Wherever you are in your journey, we invite you to join us.
Our Vision Framework
THE MISSION // what we do
Making disciples of JESUS neighborhood by neighborhood.
THE VISION // where we are going
Joining GOD as HE makes all things new.
THE VALUES // what guides us
We experience God's restorative power flowing into and mending the broken and hurting places, and we join the stream of this grand renewal project by making known the all encompassing love of Jesus in our neighborhood and city.
We affirm that every single person has immeasurable value because they are made in the image of God. Yet we live in a world where so many have their inherent dignity questioned and marred, often as a result of systemic injustices. In response, we will be a community of hope and action - seeking friendship and unity as we become reconcilers and advocates until all people in Chicago flourish.
We are liberated through the person and work of Jesus to unceasingly experience the Spirit's transformative power and presence, and as a distinct people marked by this freedom, we delight to behold and encounter the face of God as the Kingdom breaks in among us.
