Who We Are

Faith Church began in 1910 when a small group of Elmhurst Christians met in their homes for midweek prayer, Bible study and fellowship. In 1914, the present church building was built with the first worship service held on Easter Sunday. The church became known as the Lighthouse on the Corner.

We continue to be the Lighthouse on the corner of North Avenue and York Road as we share the love of Jesus Christ from this location. We have Sunday worship services as well as a number of small groups, bible studies, prayer groups, ministries and programs.

We are a diverse multi-cultural, multi-ethnic church family that cares for and supports one another and welcomes those who are new into our midst. We support a number of missions and ministries beyond our church

Our Mission

Creating Connections through Extending Christ’s Love.

Faith Church hopes to continue to connect people to Jesus Christ and our church for the next 100 years.
