ABOUT FIRST CHURCH
First Church is a dynamic multigenerational church where young and old partner and participate together in all aspects of serving and leading.
For many years First Church was focused on reaching future generations but was struggling. In 2014, because of the great foundation laid by the leaders of the church, John Hill came on as Senior Pastor and the church began to gain momentum. After many conversations, prayer, and dreaming together the church fully committed to a contemporary worship style, a casual atmosphere, and eventually a new building while still being very gospel-centered. First Church now has two campuses and engaging ministry at all levels. The majority of the growth has come from unchurched people. The biggest catalyst for the growth has been the empowerment of church members to lead others to Christ. In 2020, Outreach 100 recognized First Church as one of the fastest growing churches in the US.
The First Church team is passionate and laser focused on the mission:
Generation after Generation becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
The two campuses of First Church are located about 20 minutes apart. Both campuses are located in what many describe as perfect locations. The towns of Wheatfield and Hebron are small and relational, where people know their neighbors and feel safe. A 30-minute drive from Wheatfield or Hebron will take you to the midsize cities of Crown Point or Valparaiso, and just over an hour away is Chicago.
