On October 7, 1984, a small group of believers began meeting together at South Side School, dreaming of a church where people could experience the freedom of following Christ. Their focus was on reaching lost people with the love of Jesus.
Over time, that group of 50 people grew, and the current Effingham campus on Veterans Drive was dedicated on November 8, 1987. New people kept coming, drawn to Christ-focused, Bible-centered teaching and the welcoming spirit of the congregation.
In 2016 Christ's Church launched a second campus in Flora, and in 2017 people in Dieterich began meeting to worship God and grow together outside of a standard church environment. We are now one church in four locations, with seven different services, all united in reaching out to people, leading them towards Christ, and helping them to grow in His likeness.
