Our Values

We welcome everyone to our service of worship and into the full life and leadership of the church.We are Open and Affirming.

Whatever your background might be – your race, your nationality, your physical or mental condition, your gender, your sexual orientation – whoever you are and wherever you come from, we welcome you in love as Jesus Christ has welcomed us.

Who are we?

We conscientiously strive to follow Jesus Christ by being a friendly and welcoming community, not merely tolerant and inclusive, but actively caring about all people of all origins, customs, sexual orientation or family configuration. We advocate being keenly attentive to environmental and social justice issues.

We are excited by our many outreach and volunteer programs. We partner with churches and helping organizations in the nearby cities of Detroit and Pontiac.

We are family oriented and deeply committed to Christian education among both the children of our community as well as adults.

The church’s location and building do not define the congregation, most members live within a 30-minute drive, but we have regular participating members who drive an hour or more to join our community. We’ve thus become a people who share in a point of view on faith and what it demands of us, rather than geographic proximity.
