What is our story?

Northwoods Community Church started in 1990 with a vision to reach the 150,000 people in the greater Peoria area who did not have a relationship with Jesus and needed a church home.

Now, more than 25 years later, Northwoods continues to flourish and impacts thousands of lives every week. Originating in Peoria, campuses now serve the communities surrounding Galesburg and Chillicothe, with new campuses being established throughout central Illinois. The Online Campus reaches even more people, not only in Illinois but around the world.

This is the ministry God has planned for Northwoods: to introduce people to Jesus, to help people receive physical and emotional healing, to show people how to break free from the pain of their past, and to release people from the spiritual influence of evil.
