Welcome to Lively Stone M.B. Church. Our mission is to love God while loving God's people. We strive to create a church with an abundance of resources to meet the needs of our people. For over 50 years, our church has been standing strong in Chicago. We invite you to join us in fellowship, every Sunday at 12 pm CT!
To love God while loving God’s people.
To bring individuals to Jesus, develop them to Christ-like maturity, and equip them for ministry in the Church in order to magnify God’s name.
To create a church with an abundance of resources to meet the needs of God's people.
There is no core value more fundamental to Lively Stone than prayer, praise, and worship. God-directed ministry does not happen without this value, and all other values find their center here.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12, NASB)
We believe the world matters to God, and therefore, they matter to the church. Our call is to meet the needs of people, and the only way to understand the need is to reach out and build relationships with those in our communities.
We attend to the details and aim for quality. We exceed the expectations of those we serve, all to the glory of God.
The poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou said, “At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.” We aim to do everything with a Christ-like posture, disposition, and spirit.
We strive to do the right thing even when no one is watching.

We believe in striving to be better today than we were yesterday.
