Grace Presbyterian Church exists to welcome our neighbors, to grow together in Christ, and serve God in our community and world. This mission, rooted in Christ's Great Commission and Great Commandment (Matthew 28:18-20; 22:36-40), flows out of our fundamental belief that the grace of God, in Jesus Christ, changes everything.


Grace Presbyterian desires to know and experience Jesus and to make his kingdom and

presence known on the North Shore, in Chicago, and beyond.


Grace Presbyterian Church finds her roots in the historic creeds of the world-wide church, especially the Apostle's Creed and Nicene Creed. More specifically, we are Presbyterians. Presbyterians join in faith and practice through the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. The Westminster Confession was produced in the 17th century in England. It was written by hundreds of pastors and elders who met over a period of several years. The goal was to unite the church of Jesus by a unified expression of doctrine, worship, and church government. Though the language of this confession is antiquated it remains an incredibly helpful resource for the church as we look forward to see God's continued work in and through his people. Our denomination is the Presbyterian Church in America.
