What We Believe…

The Bible is real, relevant, authentic, and reliable. It is the inspired Word of God without error. It is the only source for faith, and reveals both who God is and who we are. Scripture is our final authority on doctrine, discipline and life.

The Bible states that there is only one God. He is the creator of all, sustainer of all, all knowing, all powerful, and ever present. The Scripture further reveals that God was made known to man in Jesus Christ. Jesus is Emmanuel  God with us. He is at once the Son of Man and the Son of God. Jesus was born of a virgin miraculously, crucified innocently, died mortally, and resurrected to life victoriously. The Bible tells us that Jesus is our one and only savior. All who place their trust in Him, He will fill with His victorious Spirit.

The Bible teaches that trusting Jesus to be your Savior means that we must be born again. To be born again we must acknowledge our sinfulness. We all have sin, we all fall short of God’s holiness. Our sins are the culmination of decisions to follow our selfish, stubborn and rebellious ways. Repentance is when we turn from those ways to follow the way, Jesus Christ. We all are invited to repent by faith. Jesus told us that we must be born of the water and the Spirit. Our faith will lead us from repentance to baptism. Baptism immerses our old ways in the name of Jesus Christ, that we might identify with His death, and arise with a clean conscience a new creation. To that, we are PROMISED that we will be filled with the Holy Spirit, just like the early church.

Scripture teaches that those who are born again are called the Church. They are to model their lives after Jesus Christ. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control are to be nurtured and seen in the Church. We are called to live as God sees us, holy, pure and righteous. We do this by letting His Spirit influence our daily lives. Scripture calls us to separate from this world and run toward God. Faith living is living submitted to the Lord, His Word, letting Him guide our every step.

 The Bible recorded the early church miracles, prophecy, speaking in other languages, healings, and much more. There is no recorded end to these gifts, and should be demonstrated in the modern church.

 Because of God’s lavish love we express ourselves vibrantly in worship. Worship goes beyond our weekly gatherings but bleeds over into all areas of life. God created us for His pleasure, so we carefully determine what would please Him in our lives.

The Bible is clear that we will all face Jesus at judgement. For those who chose to trust Him there is an eternal reward, a new heaven and new earth where Jesus dwells with the faithful from all generations. For those who reject Him there is eternal punishment apart from Jesus, where there is torment, darkness, and no escape. It is because of these realities we are commanded to, “GO!” We are to tell everyone of the greatest news to ever be heard – anyone, everyone, can be right with God. That is our message, it was the message of the apostles….it was the message from God that became flesh, Jesus.

Pastor Carol’s passion is to bring people into the presence of God through true worship and the Word. That encounter ought to be both life changing and transforming.

Andriece Patten
Church Administrator
 

Andriece has been married to Chris since 1989, and she loves to go on adventures! Her favorite scripture is Philippians 2:4, the Biblical mandate to be nosy! Andriece has 2 great sons who are the world’s best ever (to her anyhow). Ben & Ashley serve as the music minister’s in Hurst, Texas and Daniel currently is in the Air Force serving overseas. Her step daughter and her husband live in Kalamazoo and with 6 children they stay BUSY! Andriece has been the administrator at Truth Church for a total of 17+ years. During her tenure, she completed her MBA from Edinburgh Business School. She has had the privilege of helping different Michigan churches establish their church offices and procedures. Her passion is keeping the office organized and running smoothly. She believes that by taking care of the business aspects of the church, it frees up the Pastor to concentrate on the spiritual side and taking care of the flock. “It is fulfilling when you are using the gift(s) God has entrusted you with to help in the Kingdom’s work. At Truth Church we help you to find your God given calling and give you the opportunity to put it to work! It’s a good life living for Jesus.

 

How can I get involved?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Truth Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Truth Church members are involved in a variety of ministries such as Sunday school, Life Groups, music and media to name a few.
 
 

TC Kids

Proverbs 22:6 says “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Our mission at Truth Church is to assist parents in training and reinforcing Biblical values and principles. Each Sunday morning, while the adults gather in the Sanctuary, our Sunday school staff strive to educate our children, from ages 2 through 12th grade, regarding the core values of Christian living, through fun and innovative lessons using visual aids, crafts, games, and discussions.

The Drive is led by a team of student leaders who have a desire to impart Godly values and to invest in this generation. Our goal is to reach out to our community and to our world. Our youth services are packed with the presence of God, fun activities, and life-changing messages. Click link to be connected to the Youth Facebook Page.

 

 

1128Music & Worship

1 Peter 2:9 states “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” We have been called and designed to praise the name of Jesus. Each service begins with a dynamic time of worship led by the Truth Church worship team. The music ministry of our church family involves scores of people and is an integral part of our worship. We appreciate the involvement of so many fine individuals.

 
 
 

Life Groups

Life Groups are all about doing life together. Connection is critical to our Christian walk. Jesus modeled small groups for us by selecting twelve disciples to spend his time with while he was on earth.
 
 

 

Bible Quizzing

Truth Church has Beginner, Jr and Sr Bible quizzing teams who meet weekly and compete in tournaments in Michigan and across the country. It is a great way to get our kids reading, memorizing, and excited about God’s word. We are so happy to have this dynamic ministry a part of our church. Click link below to see what quizzing is about.
