Church Overview

Our mission, vision, and beliefs 


Helping People Follow Jesus

The primary purpose of the church is to glorify God by making disciples. This is the single greatest contribution the church can make in this world, and toward that end all of our programming at BBC will be driven by at least one of these four disciple-making activities: proclaiming the gospel, restoring the broken, equipping the believer, and sending out disciples.

Our Vision

In November 2021, the Elders cast a Multi-Campus Ministry vision for Glen Ellyn Bible Church, one church meeting in multiple locations to REACH more people with the Gospel in DuPage County. God answered our prayers as we adopted Bartlett Bible Church (formerly Poplar Creek Church) as our first campus.
