"Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples."
1 CHRONICLES 16:23-24
"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
WHO WE ARE
Faith Community Presbyterian Church (FCPC) is a fellowship of faithful believers in Jesus Christ who are devoted to the worship of God, the study of the Bible, and the sharing of His love and saving grace to all.
A few families whose lives were touched by the work of missionaries in the Philippines started gathering together in the 40's as an independent congregation in Chicago. This grew over the years and in May 1975 became a part of the nation-wide family of churches of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
We come from many parts of the Philippine Islands and now reside throughout the widening urban region of the Chicago area. We are a happy mix of children, young people,, adults, and elderly; and of students, workers and professionals. In time we were joined by a growing number of American friends.
The Pastor, together with the Elders, administers the operations of church activities and, with the Deacons, provide spiritual care and service to the members. Opportunities to learn more of Christ abound in the church and His caring presence is experienced in many ways in the fellowship.
