Our Story

3 decades in the making
Story

In 1985 something unusual started happening on a high school campus in the Chicago suburbs. Students’ lives began to change. It started with a simple message about God and became a movement. The message about God had been available before that, but that was the point when many first heard and understood. Just like the beginning days of the early Christian church, the message spread rapidly bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives.

Ginger Creek grew out of that youth movement. Since no church in the area wanted to be a church for the students, a new church was born. It was a church for the one whose life was changing because of this simple message about God. It was also a church for the one who was just curious and wanted to understand more about God. It’s still a church for both.

Today we have stored up more than 3 decades of stories about the lives that have been changed by this same simple message about God. That simple message about God’s wonderful grace can change every life, just as it changed our lives.

The same Good News that came to us is going out all over the world, and we are literally watching the impact. Let’s Celebrate the IMPACT!

“This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.” Colossians 1:6
