West Suburban Church of Christ is here to deliver the soul saving gospel message of Jesus Christ. If you believe there are those who need the souls saving message of the gospel of Jesus Christ, then West Suburban is for you. Our mission is "Love God and Our Community." The manner in which we achieve this mission is by "Declaring the Gospel of Jesus Christ" and "Demonstrating Christ's Love and Compassion." Our burden for the lost motivates and energizes everything that we will do. The second reason we're here is to create a safe place for people to explore the gospel through love, encouragement, and consistent commitment to scripture. We strive to gather struggling Christians and individuals who need to be a part of a church in which they can ask questions and express their doubts and misgivings without having their salvation immediately called into question.
The West Suburban congregation began in 1943. Gasoline rationing during the war caused some of the Brookfield congregation to desire to worship near their homes. O.D. Bixler, minister of the Brookfield church, preached for the group on Sunday afternoon at a location on 17th Avenue in Maywood. The fledging congregation moved to the Masonic Hall in Maywood in June, 1944, where it continued to meet until this present meet place was ready in August, 1956.
The ministry of Christians at West Suburban has extended beyond the western suburbs of Chicago. Care for the needy and unfortunate and foreign missions in Germany, France, Hong Kong, Africa, Japan, Spain, Russia and Jamaica. Members also have worked with the mentally ill, innercity needs, Christian youth camps and other youth activities.
West Suburban Church of Christ gives honor to all ministers, elders, deacons, staff, along with former members who have assisted in the growth of the Lord's church in Berkeley, IL. Since Feburary 14, 2014 Omah C. Smith, Jr. serves as the ministering evangelist of West Suburban. Bro. Smith's states that his goal is to, "Preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those seeking the need for salvation."
