Lessons for Disciples



Alpha and Omega MBC was founded in Chicago as a church committed to promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Alpha and Omega is a community minded and family friendly church where a stranger can find a friend and families can worship together.


As a community minded church we endeavor to bring community minded activities and resources to our members as well as the surrounding community.


Our goal is to expand our community projects to include and after school program as well as an adult continuing education center among our services that would be of value to our members and surrounding community.
