For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Waves of Grace
Receive the unceasing wave after wave, after wave, after wave of Grace God has for you.John 3:17

Welcome to the Chinese Bible Church of Oak Park
We are a non-denominational church with English, Cantonese and Mandarin speaking congregations
located in beautiful Oak Park, a western suburb of Chicago. We are one of the oldest Chinese Churches in the Chicagoland
area (106 years). In practice, this church unites three language groups into one body in love and in mission to proclaim
and live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We help people connect with God so they can unlock the power and peace of the Gospel. It is our hope to guide people to
see the reality of God's truth in their lives. Help people where they're motivated in exploring God's truth by reading &
studying on their own. Help people to be more than hearers, but doers of the Word. The goals of teaching have always been
to Inform, Inspire, Illustrate the truth of God's Word & the gospel (love) of Jesus Christ. Every person is unique so personal
care from the church body is critical for spiritual growth. Will you join us in that journey?
God is fair; he will not forget the work you did and the love you showed for him by helping his people. And he will remember
that you are still helping them. We want each of you to go on with the same hard work all your lives so you will surely get
what you hope for. (Hebrews 6:10-11)
Reflecting on the past. Redeeming the moment. Reaching forward with the Gospel.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind
and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward
in Christ Jesus. Phillipians 3:13-14 (NIV)
Every ministry must consider the past, present and future at all times. Pressing forward is healthy and reminds of the
mission we have received from Jesus Christ.
We believe the theme title "FORWARD" will incorporate the action to glorify God with all of our being as we enter this
unique season of change.
You would be surprised to find the diversity within the English ministry cutting across different cultures and multiple generations.
Despite differences the common thread is our love for Jesus and it shows in our relationships with each other.
