Our Core Values
These six core values are the pillars upon which encounter church is built and strives to operate.
They outline who we are, what we believe, and how we live our lives.
LOVING WELCOME TO ALL
In our church, we focus on creating a loving atmosphere where everyone is welcome.
In our church, we worship freely, welcoming the presence of the Holy Spirit.
COMMITTED TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH
In our church, we offer opportunities for everyone to grow in their faith in Christ through the study of God's word (the Bible).
FREEDOM TO OPERATE IN SPIRITUAL GIFTS
In our church, we allow everyone freedom to use the gifts of the Holy Spirit to encourage others.
FAITHFUL MISSIONS MINISTRY
In our church, we faithfully support those who bring Christ's message of hope to the world.
GENEROUS MINISTRY TO THOSE IN NEED
In our church, we care about those in need and respond with a generous heart.
Encounter Church was planted as the first Home Missions Church of the Michigan District of the Assemblies of God in 1946. We have always believed that God moves powerfully and supernaturally in the lives of His Church. We are rooted in God's Word and are eager for people to know Him as a loving, powerful savior and friend.
We look forward with great anticipation to what Jesus will do through the church He raised up so many years ago. Please join us on this exciting journey together!
