Greenford Christian Church has been a gathering place of Christians in the Greenford, Ohio area since 1830. Our campuses presently serve the Greenford and Austintown communities, but our place of ministry is anywhere and all the time, not just within our church buildings.
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus. We are a group of people walking together on a journey with God. We are having conversations and growing in our understanding of who Jesus is and applying that to our everyday life. Our goal is to help you take the next step in your spiritual journey.
We want everyone to take the next step in their spiritual journey. An essential component of this is to help every person and each of our community groups maintain three elements in everything they do: UP, IN and OUT. Some are just beginning their journey and others are further down the road. What we all have in common is a desire to be more like Christ.
Relaxed, relevant and real. Greenford Christian Church is an uplifting, encouraging, supportive, loving family. As a church body we are a household. The principles and ideals that bind this church family are our collective desires.
One of the greatest gifts we as Christians can share is the gift of our testimony. Watch Greenford Christian families share their stories, and discover what God has saved them from or called them to.
Originally organized in 1830, Greenford Christian Church has come a long way since its humble beginnings in an old log meeting house. In the early days, 24 members congregated to worship, learn and spread the Word of Jesus Christ. Through the years, Greenford bore witness to new ministers, weddings, funerals and the development of programs like Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. The Greenford Christian Church community continued to grow, not only in numbers, but also in faith. And it is now the thriving congregation that we know and love!
In 1830, a group of people from Green Township formed a church organization which held services in a log building west of Greenford.
In 1841, the first building was constructed on a lot purchased for $35.65. Membership increased and in 1865 the first Sunday School was organized.
The Greenford campus experienced a season of growth with the construction of our worship center and The Big Reach Center of Hope.
Greenford Christian Church expanded, opening the Austintown campus on September 30, 2018.
