If you are new to the Wheaton area or looking for a church home…

Beginning a new chapter in life brings both the joy of discovery and the discomfort of the unknown. Moving to a new neighborhood, starting a new job, making new friends and even visiting a new church can bring either of these emotions to us. We would like to help you make the seeking of a new church family a rewarding and memorable adventure.

We consider transforming the quality of your personal spiritual life to be one of our primary reasons for existence. Through biblically based sermons that relate to life, opportunities to develop friendships and the spiritual exercises of Bible study and prayer, we seek to engage our community in service and witness. I hope to meet you personally and guide you toward finding answers to any questions you might have about our beliefs, practices, programs and opportunities. Welcome to Evangel!

Our Purpose and Mission

Evangel Baptist Church is a fellowship of believers in Jesus Christ whose purpose is to know and glorify God through worship, nurture and evangelism.

We are committed to understanding and obeying the Word of God to the end that our lives will be changed and growth will occur. Through the direction and power of the Holy Spirit, we seek to use our gifts and physical resources as a witness to those whose lives we touch, to the community around us and to the world beyond.

It is our goal to grow in personal holiness through the ministry of God's Word so that all we are and do, both corporately and individually, becomes an expression of worship to God.
