Welcome to Christ Presbyterian Church! We’re a local church body that loves Jesus Christ, believes the gospel, and values the centrality of God’s Word. We long to see Chicagoland full of vibrant followers of Jesus Christ, and we hope that you’ll join us in worship, discipleship, and service to Christ as we pursue that mission.
Denomination and Theology
Christ Presbyterian Church belongs to the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), and is part of the group of Chicagoland churches that make up the Chicago Metro Presbytery (CMP). Our church follows in the footsteps of the historically reformed Christian faith; we value both the tradition and creeds of the church, and also fresh and thoughtful engagement with our culture today through the gospel of Jesus Christ. CPC is governed by a session of elders, which is made up of our senior pastor, Rev. Pablo Herrera, as well as four ruling elders from the congregation. Our deacons are leaders from the congregation who serve the church by overseeing the building and grounds, finances, and general care of the congregation.

Here at CPC, we place great value on the centrality of the gospel of Jesus Christ, Word-centered expository preaching, vibrant and thoughtful corporate worship, liturgy and historic creeds of the faith, the weekly celebration of the Lord’s Supper, the celebration of the sacrament of Baptism, family ministry and discipleship, and care for one another in the body of Christ. CPC members generally commit to regular attendance at the Sunday corporate worship service, involvement in one of our geographically-based “Community Groups,” regular support of the church through giving and prayer, and often some areas of service in the church. CPC’s congregation is generationally and economically diverse, and we deeply value the unity that we share in the gospel, which binds together followers of Christ from different generations, ethnic backgrounds, and socioeconomic situations. We love striving together to be a friendly and hospitable place; you’ll be greeted warmly here, and we love welcoming new faces into our community. Membership for people who want to make CPC their church home, we encourage them to consider joining us as members. The membership process will involve an interview with one or more of our elders, as well as some conversations and meetings to learn more about life at CPC. For more information about pursuing membership at CPC, please contact Pastor Pablo.
