In light of the current events surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, church activities have moved online until further notice. We ask that you make it a priority to worship, pray, and listen to the word in your own homes. Check out our Facebook Page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/BelovedComChurch/
We exist to see the Gospel transform people into Spirit-filled disciples, who know they are the beloved of God, because of Christ alone.
The message of the Gospel permeates everything we do. The ‘gospel’ is the good news that through Jesus Christ, the power of God’s kingdom has entered history to redeem us from our sins and to renew the whole world. In Jesus, God became man, lived a perfect life and died a sacrificial death on the cross. In his death, he took our place, paid the penalty for our sins and experienced the holy wrath of God. After he was buried, he rose victoriously from the grave on the third day, and ascended to the right hand of God where he reigns. This resurrection guarantees that those who believe in Jesus would receive the righteous rewards of his perfect life. The plan of redemption and renewal was hatched in the heart of God. Instead of being a slave to religious requirements the believer is now free to live for God in light of his love – we do not work in order to be loved; we desire to become more like Jesus because we are loved. Gospel-centeredness is fundamental to each of our core values of worship, discipleship, community and missions.
Daniel was the first staff person to commit to the Church of the Beloved network. He graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and is currently completing his Master’s degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL. Daniel has ministered to youth, college, and young adults in Virginia, California, Florida, and now Chicago. He has a heart for shepherding, sharing the gospel, and worshiping with his congregation. In October 2015, Daniel moved from the role of Interim Lead Pastor to Lead Pastor, and he is excited to see what God has in store for the church. Daniel married his wife, Kate, in September 2015. Together they enjoy spending time with friends, traveling to visit family, finding good Chicago restaurants, and beating each other in card games. Please pray that God will continue to strengthen their marriage as they serve the church together.

One of our greatest needs as a church plant is for financial partners who will invest into the Kingdom vision. Please prayerfully consider supporting us as missionaries to Chicago!
We have recently migrated to a new online giving provider, Planning Center Giving. It is our hope that using this service will be a better experience for our congregation. Additionally, this service offers significantly reduced processing fees on each donation, meaning more of your donation goes directly to the church.
