For almost 90 years, Wheaton Bible Church has responded to the call to love God, grow together, and reach the world. We have followed Jesus, and the stories that God has written in and through our church are remarkable.
We believe God has given us a holy restlessness and a deep yearning to follow Jesus more fully, and a renewed sense of urgency to become fishers of men and women (Mark 1:17). We are convinced that God is calling us to embrace the Great Commission like never before, to love our neighbors, share our personal faith stories, tell the Gospel story, and equip every believer for the work of the Gospel. Our vision is simply to be compelled by His love—to be the Church and to make disciples who themselves will make disciples both here and around the world.
Wheaton Bible Church, located 30 miles west of Chicago, is a non-denominational church of 4,000 people gathering in English and Spanish speaking congregations. We are a Gospel-driven, mission-focused church with a large local and global presence and our commitment to the Gospel, the Word of God, and discipleship has been the foundation of our church.
As an active church with many ministries, WBC has a lot to communicate. We offer five Sunday morning worship services in four worship styles, along with Sunday school classes and small groups for all ages. Our ministries offer children, youth, senior adults, and everyone in between a variety of activities, Bible studies, special events, mission trips and more.
