About Us

Calvary Church of Lemont has the privilege of serving the rapidly expanding population and increasing diversity of our village and the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Our congregation is a gathering of people with diverse backgrounds, personalities, age groups, careers, and lifestyles; yet we are united as a community by our relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Too often such diversity builds walls between people. We are called by Jesus to be a "church without walls" where all are accepted and where diversity is a mark of the richness and beauty of church life. 

Calvary seeks to be centered in the reconciling love of Jesus that the Apostle Paul refers to in his letter to the church in Ephesus; "For Christ himself has made peace between us... He has broken down the wall of hostility that used to separate us... Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of His death..." Ephesians 2:14-16 (NLT). 

Calvary Church is called to demonstrate and share this reconciling love with the southwest suburbs.

Our Mission

know Jesus. love each other. serve the world. 

Our mission represents the way we model our church, the way we seek to live our lives, and the way we strive to serve God. While our mission may seem simple, it is the core of our church. Everything we do is based around these three points.

Our Values

Three core values direct Calvary Church in fulfilling the calling of connecting people to Jesus and to each other; Relationship, Truth, and Mission. As you become acquainted with us you will find that these three core values direct all facets of our congregational life and ministry to children, to youth, to adults, and to the surrounding community.

  • Relationship

    The one true God exists from all eternity in the perfect community of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. At the heart of the very nature of the God of all creation is relationship. God created men and women in his own image to find meaning and joy in deep and unbroken relationships. The fall into sin brought alienation. Jesus has come to restore relationship with God and with one another.

    Calvary Church seeks to demonstrate to the world that authentic love in Jesus has the power to unite people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, personalities, and ages, into a community of love. 

  • Truth

    Meaning comes from truth. Meaning is something all people long for and search for to find purpose and reason in life. God has revealed truth through Jesus and through his words, the Bible. 

    Calvary seeks to speak and embody the truth of God centered in Jesus. 

  • Mission

    Mission is living intentionally for Jesus with passion to influence other’s for him. Jesus gave the church it’s mission in Matthew 28:18-20, “As you go about living, make disciples baptizing them as testimony of their faith & teaching them so they become mature in their faith”. 

    Calvary seeks to build relationships for Jesus with neighbors, co workers, and people all around the world through our missionaries.
