"There are no limitations placed upon someone because of their past, only a pursuit towards the glorious future destiny that God has planned for us. The hunger on the inside of each of us for significance and greatness is the God ordained call to pursue Christ. We are an active church body ready to greet you with encouragement and support. "

- Pastor David Tinberg

Our History

Christian Life Center is an Assemblies of God Church established in August of 1984 in the town of Cicero Illinois. It is the manifestation of the burden placed in the heart of Pastor David Tinberg.  In May of 1983 Pastor Dave, who at the time was a student at Central Bible College, felt the Lord leading he and his wife Cindy to pioneer a church in the Cicero-Berwyn area.

 

CLC started in the chapel of a funeral parlor with a handful of faithful congregants. It wasn't long before CLC outgrew the chapel of the funeral parlor, and a store front after that, and eventually an old Masonic Temple. Pastor Dave prayed for a building that would allow the church to continue to grow. In 2004, through a series of miraculous events, that prayer was answered and Christian Life Center purchased the building that stands at 3409 Grove Ave, in Berwyn, Illinois. After this, God continued to do miracles that led to the renovation of what once was a church led by the founder of Berwyn, Charles Piper.

 

Now, firmly established in the community, Pastor Dave & CLC continue to bring the message of the Gospel to the Berwyn area through Sunday & Wednesday services, the Food Pantry and Community Kitchen, and now Mission House Cafe.
