Local Missions

Food Bank

The Creve Coeur Christian Food Bank was started in 1982 by three women who came along with the minister, in response to the long Caterpillar strike. We began serving about 20-40 families who came once a month. We have grown to serve over 2,000 people and over 800 families a year.  The Food Bank is open on the first and third Tuesday of every month from 1PM to 3PM.

Rainbow’s End Preschool

Rainbow’s End Preschool is a program that will help them develop into well-rounded individuals. Through structured programs, directed activities, & carefully planned lessons, we will provide opportunities for students to develop the mental, physical, social, & spiritual aspects of their lives. Through evaluation & careful planning, changes will be made as needed to insure a top-quality program for our students.

Weekend Snack Pack

Many children who receive free/reduced-price school meals are left without adequate nutrition on weekends & breaks. Our program is designed to fill this gap by providing healthy, kid-friendly, & easy-to-prepare foods to children at risk of weekend hunger. We prepare 400 sacks each month of the school year & are funded through the generosity of church members & community organizations.

State and International Missions

What We Believe


God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of everything that exists. He is one God manifesting Himself in three distinct persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father loves His creation and desires that humanity be restored to a right relationship with Him as His children.


Jesus Christ is God’s one and only Son and the Savior of the world. Though He was sinless, He gave His life as the sacrifice for the sins of the world by dying on the cross. Three days later, He rose from the dead claiming victory over sin and death, providing eternal life for those who believe in Him.

Jesus then ascended into Heaven to assume His eternal position of glory, authority, and as the only mediator between God and man. He is preparing a place there for His followers for all eternity. He will return to judge the living and the dead, the faithful to eternal life, those who reject Him to eternal darkness.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the unseen and personal manifestation of God actively working in the world. The Holy Spirit makes us aware of sin and our need for Jesus Christ. The promised indwelling of the Holy Spirit then provides the Christian with strength, comfort, understanding, guidance and helps in developing the very character and nature of God.


The Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative Word to all mankind, written through human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the complete revelation of God’s plan for our salvation and the final authority on all Christian beliefs and living.


The Bible teaches a person is saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus, the Son of God. Nothing we try to do on our own could ever make right our relationship with God, earn our salvation, or pay for our sins. Jesus, however, did pay for our sins in full through His death on the cross. This “good news” (gospel) of forgiveness of sin and the promise of eternal life is offered to all.  The Bible teaches that to accept Jesus as Savior is to believe in Christ as God’s Son and Savior of the world, to repent of personal sin, to confess Christ as Lord, and to be immersed in baptism.


The Church is the body of Christ on earth, the community of believers throughout the world. It is not a building or a place, it is God’s people.  The church exists to glorify Jesus Christ in many ways. We accomplish that primarily by living the Great Commandment to love God and to love our neighbor and by fulfilling the Great Commission to share the gospel of Jesus with everyone that they might follow Him, too.

We pursue the unity of all Christians upon a shared faith in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the Living God.
