Aurora, Illinois is the City of Lights.
Though a suburb of Chicago, it is the second largest city in the state of Illinois with an estimated population in 2013 of over 199,000. Aurora is vast, extending into four counties.
Aurora is diverse: ethnically, culturally, economically and spiritually. It has a rich and proud history, built on the hard work of individuals and families. It has 6 school districts and 7 townships covered within its limits. It is home to the famed Paramount Theatre and the Hollywood Casino.
Despite its rich heritage, Aurora, Illinois is also a city with a great many needs. Broken homes, addiction, poverty, homelessness, and crime still litter the landscape of this city. And where darkness thrives, God intends His redemptive light to shine. This is why we’re here in Aurora—because God has called us to be the light of the world!
The Edge Church believes that the Spirit of God is on the move in Aurora. God is changing this place into a true city of light whose source is the light and love of Jesus.
Since planting a church here in 2010, we’ve called this great city our home. By the grace of God and for His glory, we are committed to seeing revival and transformation across Aurora as people encounter the love, power and truth of Jesus Christ!
