Heart of Illinois Via de Cristo Resources

Via de Cristo is based on the fundamentals of Christianity concentrating on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ.  The purpose of the movement is to inspire, challenge and equip local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches and communities.  We emphasize a method of living the faith that people can use in their daily life.  All participants are encouraged to develop a vital relationship with their own pastor.  The weekends are ecumenical and remain consistent with the historical Lutheran confessions.
