First Free Rockford is a multi-generational Christian church in Rockford, Illinois. We’ve been around since 1884, through most of our city’s history.

Our Mission: To bring people into a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Vision: To see all generations go, tell, and show the love of God in the city of Rockford and around the world.

First Free Rockford’s culture is shaped by growing relationships with God as we worship together, grow together and serve together. We offer five different Sunday worship venues with various musical styles. Through Life Groups and other small communities for all ages, we deepen relationships with God and friendships with each other. We give and serve together generously, partnering with dozens of missionaries and nonprofit organizations serving Rockford and in various locations around the world.

First Free Rockford is part of the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA), an association of autonomous churches united around ten theological convictions that form the basis of what we believe.
