    Church & Politics

    05.15.19 | Village Distinctives

    The active involvement by Christians and local churches in American politics is being advocated by many Christian leaders. This exhortation rarely addresses the question of whether it is best for Christians to become involved in the political...

    TJ Realized His Life Was Fake

    02.01.16 | Stories of Life Change

      My life was fake Quite simply, my life was fake and full of selfishness. I have the classic story of being raised in a Christian home and attended church on a regular basis when I was young. I was fortunate enough to attend private Christian...

      Darlette Couldn't Forgive Herself

      01.01.16 | Stories of Life Change

        I DEPENDED ON MYSELF As a young child I had someone very close to me take my innocence away. As a teenager and young adult, I looked for love in all the wrong ways and places. All my bad choices that I made, I blamed on what had happened to...

        Evangeline Found the Greatest Gift

        05.01.14 | Stories of Life Change

          We lived and grew up in the city with all the amenities and opportunities, but my Dad’s side of the family, who are all Hindus, lived in the village in mud huts. My parents encouraged us to start our day reading God’s Word and praying. This...

          Paula Cried Out to the Lord

          05.01.14 | Stories of Life Change

            As I look back on my life, God was always there even when I walked away from Him. Before Christ, I was self centered, loud, grumbling and complaining. The list could go on and on. I had a Christ-sized hole in my heart.

            Lisa Had to Make A Choice

            05.01.14 | Stories of Life Change

              My life before I knew Christ was a very destructive lifestyle. I did everything to run the opposite direction of our Father. It was all about me. I was in charge of my life. I called the shots. I didn’t want anything to do with religion. My...

              Fasting

              03.01.14 | Village Distinctives

              O Jesus! . . . Grant that I may become detached from all things and in all things seek you alone. Grant that I may direct my knowledge, my whole capacity, all my happiness, and all my exertions, to please you, to love you . . . Amen.Thomas...

                05.23.13 | Stories of Life Change

                  I have always been interested in working with people from other cultures. When Jesus says, "Whatever you do to the least of these, my brothers, you have done unto me," these are the people he's talking about.

                  05.23.13 | Stories of Life Change

                    This past winter I was blown away to find out that Ryan was driving from Sugar Grove over to the East side of Aurora to have a weekly Bible study with the boys from his UYM baseball team at the local McDonalds on Wednesday nights.

                      I went to Bolivia when I was in my early twenties. Seeing people with no legs begging in the street changed my life's perspective. A missions trip is a chance to serve others, but it is even a bigger chance to change our focus from temporal...

                        I was talking with the elementary children about Rock N Roll Easter, and it was awesome to see them respond to reaching out and inviting friends. It is awesome to see children strong in their faith and wanting to reach out to others.

                          My heart has really gone out to the kids at a local Colombian orphanage. It is government run, however, the administration has allowed missionaries to come in and teach the Bible so long as we also incorporate English as a Second Language.

                            We’ve hosted a man from Cuba who came with only the clothes on his back, a Bhutanese pastor and his wife and 3 children, a Muslim family from Iraq (who insisted on doing all the cooking for a week), and most recently an Iraqi mom and 2 daughters.

                              It was what our host, the Northwest Haiti Christian Mission, had hoped for; that we would bring the gift of our lives as well as the gift of the playground. In so doing, they were sure that we would receive back from these wonderful children the...

                              Doctrinal Statement

                              09.01.12 | Village Distinctives

                              THIS STATEMENT OF DOCTRINE expresses what we believe true Christians must affirm. It is not meant to represent all that Christians should believe but includes the essential truths that we believe authentic Christians must not deny.

                              09.01.12 | Village Distinctives

                              SUBMIT AN ELDER RECOMMENDATION DIGITALLY Proper biblical government by elders strengthens the church, and the biblical norm for church leadership is a plurality of God-ordained elders. (This is the only pattern for church leadership given in the...

                              09.01.12 | Village Distinctives

                              While preaching is only one aspect of what must be a comprehensive ministry of the Word of God at Village Bible Church, it is foundational to who we are. We are committed to biblical preaching. The preacher’s obligation is to communicate...
