Here at the Farmington Hills Church of God we have committed to a three part vision as a church centered around growing deeper, getting closer, and reaching wider as our driving purpose.
in our understanding of who God is, His plan for our lives, and how we can become more and more like Jesus Christ.
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. Ephesians 3:17 (NLT)
by being part of a community of people who encourage each other, build one another up in our walk of faith, and serve one another and the world together.
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35 (NLT)
by sharing the Good News—the surprising message of God’s grace—and loving our community in a way that matters.
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)
We are dedicated to fostering an open, warm, and welcoming atmosphere here at the Farmington Hills Church of God. We are a community church. We believe that everyone, everywhere who loves God and believes in Jesus Christ is a part of God's Church. New life and hope for every situation through Jesus Christ is the central focus of our message. The Bible is our source of authority.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the final authority for Christian faith and living.
God exists eternally in three persons -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- and has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, righteous in all His ways and Creator of all things.
Jesus Christ is God's eternal Son; as true God and true man, He was born of a virgin, taught people how to live through His sinless life, was crucified as a sacrifice for our sins, arose bodily from the dead, was seen by over five hundred persons, and returned to heaven to prepare a place for us.
Men and Women were created in God's image, were tempted by Satan and rebelled against God. Through repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ we are forgiven our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit and we become the children of God.
The Holy Spirit is God at work, persuading us to repent of our sins and to confess Jesus Christ as Lord. He lives in us, teaches us, enables us to live godly lives and gifts us for ministry.
The Church is the living body of Christ on earth. Jesus Christ is the head and source of life for the church. The church is composed of those who have received Him as Savior and Lord. The church exists to glorify God by worshipping Him and by communicating Christ to the world and making disciples.
Jesus Christ will return to judge the world and to take His children to their eternal home in heaven. This is the hope of the church and her encouragement for ministry.
WE STAND FOr AlL
At Farmington Hills Church of God, we condemn all forms of racism, racial inequality, and injustice. We believe that racism is not compatible with being a Christ-follower. It is a sin!
The prophet Micah called out God’s people twenty-eight hundred years ago when he said,
“O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” ~Micah 6:8
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “the time is always right to do what’s right.”
We, the Christ-followers at FHCoG, are committed to love in a way that matters by listening, learning, speaking graciously and being an advocate for others. Together we will work to help create lasting change in our community through the love of Jesus Christ.
