For we are His workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
We are an inner-city, non-denominational, Christian Church; a model of the New Testament Church found in the book of Acts, experiencing the presence and power of God in awesome ways! Located in the heart of downtown Pontiac, a city full of brokenness, our Church stands as a light among the darkness. Our home, once a bar, has been transformed into a work of beauty through the generosity of donors, to no debt of our own! God has been so good to us!
We are a fellowship of believers, an ecclesia, who've experienced Christ in a life-changing way. Before coming to know Him, we were lost, surrounded by destruction, but by the grace of God, we've been made new creatures! We loudly proclaim the message of God's free and sovereign grace. We bear witness to the miracles and wonders He is doing through us and for us, to accredit our Church and transform the lives of His people, our community, and our city!
God has called us to serve His people, to share the knowledge of His grace with those who are lost and broken. So many, after years of hiding, years of drug abuse, have seen their lives dramatically change through the work God has done inside of them! They've surrendered their lives over to the will of God, they've found peace and purpose in the arms of our loving Savior, and together we see what God is able and willing to do; true miracles only possible because He made it so!
To Deliver the Gospel to the Lost, Broken, and Addicted
Our mission is to reach the men and women who are lost in their sins; pawns of the devil who struggle with addiction, prostitution, and homelessness; to help them come to know Jesus Christ in an undeniable, powerful, and life-changing way! To see the power of God take off their chains, free them from their addiction, and move beyond their past; to bear testimony to the regenerating power of God, to be born again, to proclaim the Gospel and serve as an example to the world that salvation is of the Lord; a work of His grace; and if you are a sinner, He is the answer.
The chief end of man
is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever!
The Gospel of God's free and sovereign grace is a message fitted for the most undeserving! It's contents expresses the sovereignty of God and gives Him all the glory for our salvation. Our assembly is one that finds fellowship with one another in the bonds of the Gospel, and our purpose is to share His good news with the most needy; Christ came to save sinners, and He did so in His doing and dying!
Our vision is to establish a local, New Testament Church in the heart of iniquity, built by the converts who were totally lost and without hope, who've come to know Christ, who posses a burden and desire to connect with their fellow human being, bearing testimony to one another; to see thousands like us, experience His regenerating power, overcome their demons, leave behind their past, and relinquish control of their lives to the will of God; to transform a city, build a community, and reach the broken with His message of grace!
Brothers and sisters who wish not to simply absorb information like a sponge, but addicts reaching addicts, bearing testimony to one another, demonstrating the miracle God has rendered within themselves; who have a burden and desire to connect with their fellow human beings, to create generations of disciples, to share the good news; God has come to save sinners, and if you are one, you qualify!
We exist to serve our God and His people
And though nothing good dwells within the flesh, on the inside of every Christian, in that new creation of God, lives a new nature that does not sin; a new nature with a desire to adopt the holiness and righteousness of our Father.
To Be Generous
To Love One Another
To Help Those In Need
To Create Generations of Disciples
To Lead Our Community
To Share His Gospel
We don't subscribe to religious rituals, Church tradition, or worldly political agendas.
It's about Jesus Christ, and Him alone; what He did for us on the tree of the cross! The Bible is our Guide and the Gospel is our foundation in leadership.

We stand in awe as we see what God is able and willing to do!
Religion without witness to the miracles and wonders of God is cold and dead; it's not effective. But when you see things happening that couldn't possibly happen without God, you begin to "walk on water"; you begin to "cross the red sea"!
