Until we all arrive at the oneness of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, at a full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Eph. 4:13
Who We Are
The Church is a huge family that includes Christians all over the globe, from every walk of life and throughout all of time. Yet this thought of the universal Church is difficult to see today, since it is spiritual, spans all of time and space, and until eternity Christians will not be gathered together as one. However, the bible also speaks of local, tangible, and practical churches that can express Jesus Christ. In Ann Arbor We endeavor to be one of these churches! So, we invite you to stop by and be part of the church life that God has given to us! On these pages you will find information about who we are and what our church gatherings are like. Hopefully, your questions get answered and you decide to stop by Sunday or one of our group meetings! continue reading
When We Meet
On Sunday morning the church assembles at the rented Boy Scout Building (1979 Huron Pkwy, Ann Arbor, MI 48104)
We start at 10:00 AM and usually end by 12:00 PM. We begin by singing a mix of contemporary songs and classic hymns and have some prayer together as the church. Then, we have one members of the congregation give a 45 minute message on a passage from the Word of God. Following this, we open the floor for anyone from the congregation to respond to something they were struck by in the message, share an experience of Christ or praise the Lord for something that has happened in their life. We then end and have lunch provided. We have about 50 Christians gathered together every Sunday for our meeting. We hope you would join us!

Statement of Faith
It is difficult to write down all that we believe, because we believe what the whole Bible says. We do not have a creed per say; we only have the Bible. Here is what we have found in the bible. We hold the Bible as the complete and only divine revelation, we strongly believe that God is eternally one and also eternally the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, the three being distinct but not separate. We hold that Christ is both the complete God and the perfect man. Without abandoning His divinity, He was conceived in the womb of a human virgin, lived a genuine human life on earth, and died a vicarious and all-inclusive death on the cross. After three days He resurrected bodily and has ascended to the heavens. He is now in glory, fully God but still fully man. We look to His imminent return with the kingdom of God, by which He will reign over the earth in the millennium and in eternity. We confess that the third of the Trinity, the Spirit, is equally God. All that the Father has and is, is expressed by the Son; and all that the Son has and is, is realized as the Spirit. We further believe that mankind is in need of God's salvation. Though we were absolutely unable to fulfill the heavy demands of God's righteousness, holiness, and glory, Christ fulfilled all the requirements through His death on the cross. Because of Christ's death, God has forgiven us of our sins, reconciled us to Himself, and justified us by making Christ our righteousness. Based on Christ's redemption, God regenerates His redeemed people with His Spirit to accomplish His full salvation in them, that they may become His mature children. Now possessing God's life and nature, the believers enjoy a daily salvation in His Body in this age and the eternal salvation in the coming age and in eternity. In eternity we will dwell with God in the New Jerusalem, the consummation of God's salvation of His elect.
