Join Us Sundays at 10:00AM

We are a warm and welcoming community united by the gospel of Jesus Christ. We worship together, pray together, learn together, and care for one another. Together we are being equipped to embody, proclaim, and advance the Kingdom of God.

Church during the Covid-19 pandemic looks different, but the Lord is working in amazing ways as we continue to be the body of Christ. We look forward to connecting with you! We are located at:

49 Gold Avenue NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504

Learn more about our approach to ministry by watching this short video.


We believe worship is more than just a Sunday service, it is a spiritual celebration! Living our lives for the glory of Jesus is an act of worship. We worship God by singing to Him, hearing his voice through the preaching of the Word (the Bible), responding in obedience, and living under its values.

We also worship through sharing encouraging testimonies of how we’ve seen and experienced Jesus working in and through us.


One of the ways a church community loves one another is by caring for each others’ needs.

We recognize that there may be special needs during this time. Our Deacons and Care Team are available to you and would love to hear from you. Use one of the buttons below to contact whichever team best fits your need.
