About From the Heart of ChicagoWho We Are, What We Believe and How We Believe It
In May 2002, a Reformation Focus Group was established in Chicago by Dr. John A. Cherry, the Founder of From the Heart Church Ministries, Inc.®, and for 15 months, believers would come together to view videos from the teaching ministry. On May 25, 2003, the Chicago Focus Group traveled to Maryland to attend service at the Parent Church. On June 30, 2003, a minister from the Parent Church was assigned to pastor the congregation in Chicago. During the transition to finding a permanent church home, Dr. Cherry visited the church several times and was instrumental in ensuring that the church was properly housed. On February 1, 2008, the Chicago church held its first service in its new home.
On April 22, 2012, Dr. Cherry installed Sir Antonio C. Love as the new pastor. His assignment was to teach the rightly divided Word of Truth and to teach the Vision, Plan, and Motivation of From the Heart Church Ministries®. Pastor and Mrs. Love, along with their three children (Charity, Faith and Hope) have labored to fulfill that assignment with the support of the faithful membership. The church continues to grow spiritually, administratively and financially under the leadership of Pastor Love and is a beacon of life, love and hope in their community.
The vision is our original instructions from God. From the Heart Church Ministries, Inc.® is called to be a Philippian church and our vision is to:
Love to Give
The plan of From the Heart is to:
