    I am sure that these fine folks love their Church, but I would point out a few facts that show that Al Toledo and his Church are a SHAM.

    First of all, he did not "start" this Church. He got elected pastor to a community Church in the area, then joined it to the Assembly of God to get ($$$$$$) funding. Never did he acknowledge that he was an AOG Church to the public. He then named it Chicago Tabernacle, although there was already a Church nearby with that name. (Officially they name it Chicago Tabernacle of the Assemblies of God, so he could register with the state in spite of their being another Church with that name). http://www.ilsos.gov/corporatellc/CorporateLlcController

    Shady practices and hype have been their style all along. I am not sure who he is trying to impress, God or man. Growth and success of the Church is not an endorsement by God on this Church, but a carry over of the growth of Brooklyn Tabernacle, a sort of riding the skirt tail of the "Mother" Church running on the fumes of that Churches popularity...

    I arrive to ChiTab close to a year ago. When I arrived I was dealing with the bitterness of a divorce and a little boy who thought it was his fault. I was a wreck, mentally and emotionally. Chicago Tabernacle has been my safe haven. My life has made a 180... my relatinship with my parents was close to NOTHING... Now we're closer than ever... I LOVE TUESDAY NIGHTS where the presence of the Almighty is so tangible. My little boy has met GREAT father figures that encourage him in a Christ like way and love him. I AM TRULY BLESSED by this ministry!!! No matter how my day ends I can walk up those stairs and breath fresh air straight from heaven and ALWAYS feel like "I'M HOME!" If you do not have a church to call home... Come check us out... I promise you will not leave!!!! God bless!!

    God has totally transformed my life through the ministry of the Chicago Tabernacle. We loved listening to the Brooklyn Tabernacle choir, and when we found out there was a daughter church started in Chicago by Jim Cymbala's son-in-law, we made the drive from NW Indiana. And 5 years later, we are still making the drive several times a week to church, prayer meeting and other activities!

    They have a first class professional nursery, children's ministry, teen ministry on Wed, Friday & Sunday as well as a growing young adult, womens and mens ministry, including some small groups as well as weekly prayer meeting at 7:00 PM every Tuesday night and 3 services on Sunday. We have shuttle bus to the parking lots so don't worry about parking. It is probably the most internationally mixed church you will see -- so beautiful to see us of all ethnic backgrounds worshipping our Saviour together! THE DIFFERENCE is the PRESENCE OF GOD which is so powerful unlike anywhere else I've been in my 38 years of being a Christian.

    We drive 100 miles once or twice a week from Indiana to attend this church! Have been members since 2008 and my husband is an outreach ministry leader there - Redeem Team Nursing & Rehab Ministry.

    A daughter church of the Brooklyn Tabernacle,I think it has a more younger, midwestern contemporary feel, the music is much more like Jesus Culture, Hillsong (we have an incredible live worship band) & much younger congregation - many students from area secular and Christian colleges. However, like the Brooklyn Tabernacle, our Tuesday Night Prayer Meeting is the most important part of the week and it is there that you will really meet and develop true friendships and relationships as we pray together.

    We have a fabulous children's program CT's Playhouse for kids up to teens with their own band and special stage, activities, etc. during the Sunday and Tuesday services. We also have a world-reknowned Kids Week of Adventure incredible vacation Bible school - more like an incredible production - where people actually plan their vacations to be in Chicago so their children can attend -- usually the 2nd or third week of August. The nursery is top-of-the-line with trained staff, all the children have to be signed in and scanned on a computer with their information, I think they give out beepers or something (sorry my kids are grown) -- but it is first class, first rate -- and for those who don't want to put their children in a nursery we have a HAPPY BABY ROOM where you can watch the service with your child.

    We have SMALL GROUPS presently for young adults, married & single (click ""like"" on ADVANCE facebook) as well as EVOLVE small groups for the teens - activities specifically for the youth Sunday, Wed & Friday -- plus numerous outreach ministries including to the homeless, nursing homes, mental health facilities, children through VBS. Come see for yourself a church where there are people of every color all worshipping and loving God and each other together -- souls saved regularly who give testimonies every few months at our baptismal services - MIRACLES (I was healed of an incurable disease here) and so much more! Come early to get a good seat as even in the summer often our 11 am service is overflowing!
    The music is INCREDIBLE, the preaching is life-changing -- unlike most churches that are new but are made up of Christians who have switched churches, this church is a mix of seasoned Christians and brand new converts who give their testimonies at our baptismal services usually every few months. I was also healed of a life-threatening incurable illness during the invitation at one of the services -- simply during the invitation they asked those who needed to be healed to stand and an elder annointed their head with oil and those around them prayed for them and I threw away my meds as I no longer needed it! We have had cancer totally disappear as well and verfied by the doctor's -- if you ever want special prayer, contact th
