ESIC CHURCH is a small community of faith with big dreams and plans for Edwardsville and beyond! We are committed to embodying the essence and presence of Christ. That's why we say, "Welcome Home!" You are welcome here just as you are—the real you. At ESIC, we boldly proclaim God's transformative grace and life-changing Spirit!
Whether you are exploring a journey of faith, starting your faith journey, or have been traveling it for a lifetime-welcome home! We don't have all the answers, but we invite you to bring your thoughts as we explore how God, through the work and witness of Christ, is working in our lives and our world. JOIN US IN WORSHIP AND EXPERIENCE ESIC FOR YOURSELF!
To KNOW Christ, GROW in our faith, and GO serve in mission.
KNOW CHRIST through sincere faith
We stay focused on the gospel (good news!) and consistently share Christ in worship through heartfelt music, focused prayer, and a relevant gospel message.
We pray consistently for others to know Christ and connect to the church while hosting community events that provide Christian fellowship and our church's outreach.
We equip others to be invitational with their faith with boldness and with great humility.
GROW IN OUR FAITH through discipleship
Everyone has a next step in their faith because our relationship with God is always growing.
We provide ample opportunities for people to take that next step by providing worship that engages the heart and the mind, devotional material so you can grow at home, zoom small groups and other classes to go deeper in the Word, and developing prayer patterns that consistently pray for each other, our city, and our world.
GO SERVE in mission to our world and worship to God
Everyone has a mission in life! We aspire to help others discover their spiritual gifts and passions and equip others to make a difference in the world.
We want to serve the world around us. It’s why we support local mission work through Community of Hope and the Good Samaritan House and provide hospitality and connection to the international students at SIEu.
