SMALL GROUPS THROUGHOUT THE WEEK
"I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." ~Jesus
We are a church of roots. We’ve been on the corner of Stewart and Elm for almost 150 years. We are rooted in the Big Rapids community and we desire to be a blessing to our city.
The only way we can truly be a blessing to Big Rapids is if our roots grow down into God’s love for us in the Gospel. We believe the Gospel of Jesus is that all of us are more broken and sinful than we could ever have imagined, but Jesus gave Himself to show us that we are more loved than we could have ever hoped.
This Good News unites us and calls us to love others. As Christ did not live to please Himself, we seek to be a church not for ourselves. If we're not a church for ourselves, then who are we for? We are for Jesus - the One who loved us and gave Himself up for us. And we are for people - those for whom Christ died.
