THE CHURCH OF LIVING FAITH                  Pastor Milton Shelby - Pastor & Teacher
OUR VISION FOR THE CHURCH OF LIVING FAITH We have a dream that we would be able to provide a place where people can come and find hope, peace, love, and happiness that they may have lost or never known. We have a dream of providing a place where people can come and study the Word of God, practice the principles found in the Holy Scripture on a daily basis, and grow into spiritual maturity. We have a dream that we would be able to help people find their spiritual gifts, develop and use them to improve the quality of their lives while helping others along the way. We have a dream that one day we would own a beautiful 10,000 seat edifice in which to praise and worship God.  Every service will be filled to capacity with God’s children praising and glorifying his Holy Name.  there will be an educational facility, a recreational center and a school for the performing arts. These centers for higher learning will sit on seventy-five acres of rich, green meadows with level planes, a mixture of beautiful trees, flowers,and other greenery will cover the grounds through out.  There will be a beautiful pond placed in front of the sanctuary helping to create an atmosphere of spiritual peace and tranquility where one can learn and grow into the whole person that God wants you to be, at your own pace.

“GOD CANNOT FAIL”
                                                                           The History of the Church of Living Faith The Church of Living Faith was established by Jesus Christ and his under shepherd Pastor Milton   Shelby. The first service was held September 10, 1989 at Eddy’s Banquet Hall located 6400 South King Drive, Chicago, Illinois.  They stayed there for several months and then moved into the home of one of their members where they stayed for several months before moving into their present location of 1853 East 79th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60649.  In 1990, the Church of Living Faith was incorporated and soon afterward given their 501 C (3) status as a non-profit religious organization. Having gone from one service on Sunday, they now have a number of ministries, services and classes being offered at the church, such as Men’s Development classes, Deacons in training classes, Women’s Awareness classes, Sunday School as well as services for our youth.  There is the Men’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Music Ministry, Outreach Ministry and the Media Ministry.  Down through the years the Church of Living Faith has held many clothing drives, food drives, financial seminars, classes, workshops and job fairs with such entities as Fifth Third Bank and Career Pathway which is sponsored by the University of Illinois. With an eye toward the future, The Church of Living Faith is working in the community to empower their residents to become self sufficient through the teaching and application of universal principles that are found in the Holy Scripture.  With these principles they will be shown how to open up their own business, manage their finances, and strengthen their marriages, their families and community at large. With the help of God many of Gods people will be helped to live a great and wonderful life. Using the story of Joseph whose brothers sold him into slavery as an example of these teachings, we say, “You may live in an environment of slavery, but you do not have to be a slave to your  environment.”
THIS IS OUR DREAM, THIS IS OUR VISION, THIS IS OUR PURPOSE, LIVE IN FAITH, TRUST IN GOD
