We are a church family located in O’Fallon, Illinois, about a dozen miles east of St. Louis, Missouri. Blessed to be a small part of the world-wide, history-long Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, we desire to honor the Lord in all we do and to be a blessing to other people in His Name.

It is our conviction that living out the fundamental behaviors of truth and love as the Scriptures teach (Ephesians 4:15), we can do both. We spend the energies and resources the Lord gives us in preaching and teaching God’s Word, encouraging everyone to trust Jesus for their personal salvation and to grow in their knowledge of Him, His will and His character.

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

MECF subscribes fully to the Lausanne Covenant. This is the consensus agreement of Christian leaders from 150 nations who gathered in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1974 for the Billy Graham-sponsored International Congress on World EvangelizationWe see ourselves as one with the Body of Christ world-wide and history-long who hold to the basic, orthodox Christian teaching of the scriptures.
