What We Hold in Common

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  We are...

  • God-centered – We believe that we should be God-centered in all we do. We seek to know and worship God. Our aim as a church is to guide people to have a relationship with Jesus and to worship him with all of our lives.

  • Prayerful – The prayer life of this church is foundational for all we do.

  • Biblical – The Old and New Testament scriptures are the primary guide we have for living out our faith.

  • Relevant – We will meet people where they are and introduce them to a living God.

  • Relational – Our goal is to develop relationships through which people come to know Jesus and in which they are strengthened and grow in their life with him.

  • Radical – We will encourage wholehearted, lifelong following of Jesus. We will expect to see spiritual transformation in all areas of life and consequently will make a difference in Schaumburg (socially, economically, politically, practically).

  • Faithful – We are a people with a vision and people willing to take faith steps when prompted by the Spirit to move towards God’s goal.

Social Principles

The United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice. Its members have often taken forthright positions on controversial issues involving Christian principles.

A Brief History of Our Saviour's

Our Saviour’s United Methodist Church (OSUMC) began as a small group, a “house church,” with about a dozen young adults, in a new community, Hoffman Estates. We then became a chartered Methodist church in March,1958, with 85 members. With the support of the Methodist Conference and a group called Church Builders, our first church was built on Golf Rd.  Thirty-five years later, we had outgrown that site and moved to our present location, at Schaumburg and Plum Grove Roads.
We know you will find an active, loving, caring community at OSUMC. YOU are welcome here!
