Mission and Values

The mission of Wheaton Bible Church is that more and more people would love God, grow together, and reach the world.

We believe that God has called the whole church—young or old, single or married, new or long-time believers—to a lifelong journey of becoming and making disciples of Jesus Christ. Our mission captures, in simple phrases, what Jesus expressed in the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. Jesus loved God, loved others, and shared this Good News with all who would listen.

We want to do what He commanded and live the way He lived. Loving God keeps our eyes focused on the Author and Sustainer of our faith and flourishes best among a loving community of believers. Growing together is an ongoing process that is born from our love for God and naturally flows out into reaching the world. Reaching the world is a journey fueled by the desire to make disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples.
