Who We Are

Our Mission: Leading People into a Focused Life with Jesus Christ.




Connecting Here Is Simple

In our busy, distracted culture, we believe the Gospel calls to a life that is intentionally focused on Jesus Christ. As a result, we try to make the Christian walk here at Community Church as simple as possible. We break it down into three separate actions. 

Vision, Values, and Beliefs


Together on Purpose

This simple phrase says a lot about who we are. It means that we are together intentionally, a family by choice of authentic, faith-filled disciple makers with eyes focused on Jesus Christ. 

It also means that we are together on mission. We actively work to show love and compassion to others while serving the under-served in mid-Michigan and beyond. 


Our Values

Five core values bring clarity to the things that matter most in our church family.
They keep us focused on the unique call God has given us as a local church to speak the message of the gospel in Central Michigan and beyond.

  • Unconditional Love: Saturating our interactions with love; without love, nothing else we do matters.
  • Empowered Living: As followers of Christ, we respond to the continued work of the Holy Spirit which moves us to action.
  • Healthy Families: Investing in significant relationships and promoting a balanced lifestyle.
  • Intentional Discipleship: Bringing others along for the journey.
  • Community Impact: Living out our faith, out there beyond the church walls.

We believe in the Essentials of our Faith:

In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, and in all things charity.

All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation we affirm these additional Essentials of our faith:

  • We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To Him be all honor, glory and praise forever!
  • Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.
  • The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.
  • Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.
  • The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ. The Church finds her visible, yet imperfect, expression in local congregations where the Word of God is preached in its purity and the sacraments are administered in their integrity; where scriptural discipline is practiced, and where loving fellowship is maintained. For her perfecting, she awaits the return of her Lord.
  • Jesus Christ will come again to the earth-personally, visibly, and bodily-to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” (Rev. 22:20)
  • The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. Obedience to the Great Commission requires total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” He calls us to a life of self-denying love and service. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Eph. 2:10)

The following statement represents Community Church’s position on the topics of marriage, human sexuality, and the sanctity of life. It is our desire that we convey these positions in light of God's Word with a heart of respect and love to all. If anyone has further questions, we welcome the opportunity for open dialogue at any time.
