DWR Statement of Faith


We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be verbally inspired by God and without error in the original writings. These same scriptures are the final authority in all matters of faith and life. We believe in the Trinity as being God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, one God, made manifest in three persons who are co-equal and co-eternal. We believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord, the only virgin-born Son of God. He is the unique person of the universe, being truly God and truly humanity in one person forever.

We believe that Adam was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred spiritual death which is separation from God and that, as a result, all human beings are now born with a sinful nature.

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died on the Cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. And that all who put their trust in Him and receive Him by faith as their personal sin-bearer are born again of the Spirit of God, thereby becoming the children of God.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord, His ascension into Heaven, and His present ministry of intercession there for us as High Priest at the right hand of God.

We believe that all who are born again of God’s Spirit are baptized into the body of Christ at the moment of saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this one baptism is to be followed by continual infillings of the Spirit.

We believe in the personal bodily and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.





2019 Speaker  

Mary Lowman (formerly Mary Whelchel) is not only our Director of Women’s Ministries, she is the speaker and President of The Christian Working Woman radio ministry headquartered in Wheaton, IL. Her goals for the Women’s Ministry include inspiring and equipping the women of the church to know the passion God has for their lives and helping them pursue it with all their hearts. In addition, she wants to help older women teach the younger women as described in Titus 2. Regarding God’s character, Mary notes, “God never changes. This is the most amazing thing to me: to know that nothing can ever change His love for me and to know that He will never forsake me. His faithfulness is overwhelming.” On December 31, 2015, Mary married Rex Lowman here at The Moody Church, with Pastor Lutzer and her nephew Todd Stiles officiating. Mary enjoys watching baseball, especially the Chicago Cubs and the Atlanta Braves, and is hoping to teach Rex to enjoy the sport as well. Mary’s daughter Julie and son-in-law Todd live in Winfield, IL. Prior to joining The Moody Church, Mary worked for IBM and was a trainer for Dun &Bradstreet for many years. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in piano performance from The Kings College in Briarcliff Manor, NY.
