Vision

The great missionary theologian Leslie Newbigin emphasized that every congregation is a “hermeneutic,” or expression of the gospel of Jesus.  Therefore, Alger Park Church is not a congregation that exists simply for its own preservation. Instead, we exist to bless the world by making the grace of Jesus evident in every way possible.

We want to be a congregation that not only belongs to its members, but also to our friends and neighbors who may not believe what we do. We want to bring hope to people and situations where evil and injustice pervert God’s good will. We want to show how in Christ, God is making everything new; and our world is beloved by God, even in its current state.

So together we engage in worship, acts of service, generosity, environmental stewardship, community building, mentoring, and education. We are privileged to work with God in Alger Heights neighborhood, in all the places we live and work, and around the world.
