Our Mission

To Love God, Love People, and Make Disciples

Our Vision

To see Mecosta, Newaygo, Lake and Osceola counties discipled, and to reach the nations with the gospel through Ferris State University.

Our Core Values

We value THE PRESENCE OF GOD above all else.

Revelation 21:3 “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.”


Luke 15:7 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!

We will protect UNITY at all costs.

John 17:23 I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.

Psalm 133:1 How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!


Ephesians 4:16 He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

We will be genuine and AUTHENTIC at all times.

Ephesians 4:22-24 Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

We will be INSPIRING with our words and actions.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

We will be radically and ridiculously GENEROUS.

Luke 6:37-38 Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back

Without PRAYER, all our labor is in vain. With God, all things are possible.

Psalm 127:1 Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good.

We will HONOR and LOVE each other at all times.

Romans 12:9-13 Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection,[e] and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.


What We Believe

  • We believe...first and foremost in the love of God, in His desire to know and be known by us.
  • We believe...that each person has the ability and responsibility to know and serve Him.
  • We believe... that our knowledge of Him must go beyond merely words and ideas but He must also be experienced.
  • We believe... the Bible is inspired by God and declares His design and plan for mankind.
  • We believe...there is only one God. He is revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe...the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
  • We believe...divine healing of the sick is for today and is provided for in Christ's death on the cross.
  • We believe...That Jesus Christ is fully God. As God's son Jesus was both human and divine.
  • We believe...though originally good, man willingly fell to sin—ushering in evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
  • We believe...every person, no matter what you have done, can have a restored relationship with God.
  • We practice...water baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation.
  • We practice...holy communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
