A Congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church

New Here

Thank you for visiting our website.  We hope that you visit and worship with us. 

The following statements will help you get to know us a bit better and who we are as a church. Our church can be summarized in the following words: Biblical, Thoughtful, Reverent, and Reformed. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our church office at (989) 839-6563 or fill out out our contact form here.

Biblical

The authoritative source of our beliefs are the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.  We believe them to be both infallible and inerrant.

Thoughtful

As heirs of the Protestant Reformation, we seek to apply the riches of that era to the context of our life in the 21st century.  As we read Scripture and apply it to our lives, we make clear distinctions between the Law and the Gospel.  In short, we focus on the indicatives (what God has done for us in Christ), as the basis for the imperatives (commands) we find in Scripture. We do not want to bind consciences or speak where Scripture does not speak. 

Reverent

Our approach to God is informed by His majesty and works in redemptive history, as revealed in Scripture. We are guided by Hebrews 12:28-29, which implores believers to worship God “with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” 

Reformed

The Reformed Tradition has its origin with John Calvin, but can hardly be limited to him or to the Five Points of Calvinism. As Presbyterians, our doctrinal beliefs are found in the Westminster Confession of Faith and its catechisms, which have been long considered the highpoint of reformed theology and its clearest expression.  From time to time we also utilize the Three Forms of Unity (The Belgic Confession, The Heidelberg Catechism, and The Canons of Dordt). 

In 2017 we changed our denominational affiliation from the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) to the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC). We are part of the Presbytery of Michigan and Ontario.  Go to the following link to learn more: Presbytery of Michigan and Ontario Official Website
