Welcome to the Brush Creek USA Mission Center!

Who Are We? 

We Proclaim Jesus Christ and Promote Communities of Joy, Hope, Love and Peace

We are over 20 congregations in the Central and Southern areas of Illinois, that are part of a world-wide community of people who follow Jesus Christ, the living creator and Savior of the World.  We invite everyone to become followers and friends with Jesus — allowing Him to share and to help guide their journey toward wholeness.

We’re a People being Changed… 

We follow the living Jesus Christ, who spoke to the world in the past, who is active in our daily personal lives, and who continues to call us BEYOND who we are, into a new, unfolding future — even the kingdom of God on Earth!  Responding to God’s creative call requires constant growth for each of us.
