We’re driven by the singular goal of making and maturing disciples of Jesus who change the world.

We are a Christ-like community of believers, presenting Christ to the unchurched in relevant, innovative, and life-changing ways as we Celebrate God’s victories together, Connect in growing community and Contribute to the work of God’s Kingdom by serving and blessing others as we’re blessed.

  • An outwardly-focused church, we understand the needs of our community and meet them regularly. We love to serve Streator and the surrounding areas and have done so faithfully for over 150 years. We believe our best days are ahead of us!
  • We are committed to the unity of the Body of Christ in our community and around the globe.

What makes Streator a great place to live?

Located in north-central Illinois about 100 miles southwest of downtown Chicago, Streator is a “quiet surprise on the Prairie” with a rich history and heritage. We are a city of ~13,000, not too big and not too small, with plenty of community activities, amenities, and opportunities to grow personally along with the community.

Streator has always been an industrial and manufacturing town and today is home to customized truck fabrication, food production, trailer assembly, automotive lift manufacturing and an array of other manufactured products ranging from snow plows, salt spreaders, pipe insulation components, railroad maintenance machines, among others. The city is also home to several large service-based employers: U.S. Foods, Heritage Health, OSF Medical Group-Streator, two call centers and a dozen trucking and transportation logistics companies.

Manufacturing and agriculture remain the backbone of Streator’s economy.

Local activities include arts and entertainment through the theater and music scenes, plenty of outdoor fun (youth sports, two golf courses, hiking and biking on the Hopalong Cassidy River Trail, fishing, hunting, canoeing the Vermillion River, Starved Rock State Park in nearby Utica ), a full calendar of community events and more!
