God, the ultimate artist is at work making all things new. We exist to join him in creating a city where beauty emerges and everyone belongs. And through His gospel, our broken and fragmented humanity becomes a work of art.
To awaken Detroit to the greatest adventure of all time.
BELONG BEFORE YOU BELIEVE // You don't have to believe to be loved - Romans 5:8
LOOK UP // Jesus is our focus. Inspiration, and example - Hebrews 12:2
SEE THE UNSEEN // Our faith allows us to see what is not yet there - Hebrews 11:1-3
JUSTICE IS AN ACTIVE, RELENTLESS PURSUIT // Justice comes from the heart of God and is the restoration of all things - Micah 6:8
EMBRACE THE ULTIMATE ARTIST WITHIN // We have a God-given license to create. His spirit lives in us, therefore we can cultivate beauty and art - Ephesians 2:10
Our strategy is simple. We want to help people encounter Jesus, one another, and then the world around us. We call it up, in & out.
We believe in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as revealed in the Holy Bible and made known in Jesus Christ our Lord.
We believe that Jesus the divine Son became human, was born of a virgin, ministered in word and miracle, died for our sin, was raised bodily from the dead, ascended to God's right hand and is coming again for his people.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is presently ministering through the Christian Community, empowering lives of godliness and service.
We believe that the Holy Bible is God-breathed, true in all its teaching, and the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that Jesus Christ established his Church on earth to carry out his saving mission among all people groups and formed the Church to be One Holy People.
We believe in God's saving grace that calls forth from all people: faith, repentance, confession, baptism, and new life and ministry through the Spirit.
And we commit ourselves to the teaching, practice and defense of these truths until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
