Our History

Three missionary groups (the Presbyterian, Baptist and Congregationalist) came together back in 1903 with a burden and vision to reach the increasing number of Chinese immigrants to the Chicago area that had begun to settle in what is present-day Chinatown. They sensed the suffering and desperation of these folks and felt a desire to meet their physical needs as well as their spiritual needs. Today, after 106 years, CCUC strives to continue upholding this vision.
