Second Chance Church in Peoria, Illinois believes that we are never to far away, never too broken, never too hurt to find our way back to hope, healing, and rest in Christ.  At Second Chance Church we are discovering and sharing a relationship with a God who never gives up on us.

Second Chance Church is a place where all the people you see are imperfect, still-trying-to-figure-it- out people.  But that doesn’t mean that we’re not trying.  In fact, we are doing our best to allow God to transform us into all he desires us to be; and we’re committed to helping people find their way back to God.
