How long has this church been in the area?
What is now New Life Community Church started in 1986 but our historical roots in Chicago can be traced back to the late 1800s. We have had the privilege of adopting and restarting
several historic churches in Chicago that date back over 100 years. We consider their history our history and our legacy intertwined. I guess we could be considered a new church with an ancient history.

Who is the pastor?
Currently New Life has over 20 pastors and over 50 people on staff in various ministries throughout the city.

What should I wear to a worship service?
This is one of the most common questions people ask. We do not have a standard church dress code, but generally speaking people come in casual or business casual clothes. We attract people from all ages and a variety of backgrounds, so come as you are. We look forward to seeing you not what you are wearing.
