Who are We?
The Mt Carroll Church of God is part of the Churches of God General Conference out of Findlay Ohio. We are located in Mt Carroll Illinois (61053) 10 miles from the Mississippi River and 30 miles south of Wisconsin. We are on the edge of a town of 1,600, within a county of 15,000 and would be well defined as rural.
Our Mission: “We exist to help people Know, Love, and Serve God, the Church and their Communities.”
Our Vision: In obedience to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, we, the Mt. Carroll Church
of God, will intentionally go outside the walls of the church with the illuminating power of the
Gospel of Jesus Christ, in order to engage our communities. We will invest our time, talents, and
resources to meet people where they are at in their life’s journey. We provide stimulating
conversations, energetic and relevant worship and Biblical teaching, pointing everyone towards
a deeper connection with Jesus Christ without compromising the Truth of God’s Word.
Therefore, we aspire to develop the God given abilities of every believer to Know, Love and
Serve God, the Church and Their Community.
We are working at making the Vision and Mission that God has given us a reality. Not all of the pieces of the puzzle are in place to make them a reality, yet. Could you be that piece of the puzzle we are missing?
