About

Our Mission – Inspiring Men to Believe, Equipping Men to Lead, Calling Men to Purpose-Filled, Christ-Centered Lives.

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men (women), regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe God saves man by grace, through faith alone, according to the scripture alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone.

Our Vision: Unite the men of the Downriver community as an immobilized, spirit filled, force for the Kingdom of God, leading our families with Christ-likeness; loving our wives, raising up godly children, maintaining authentic testimonies in the work place, leading in our churches, bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God.

 Our movement: This would be a dynamic movement of men between sponsoring churches generating a contagious move of the Spirit in the men of downriver, calling men to prayer and repentance, reviving faith, establishing purpose and mission, and inspiring men toward intentional growth and godly friendship. Example – if there were four sponsoring churches men would meet in church A week one, and at church B, week two, church C week three, church D, week four, and then the rotation would begin again. Men could limit their participation to only when it is at their church, or they could follow the rotation for more involvement.

 Accountability: The oversight for this group will be a unified board made up of the Pastors in the participating churches who will meet twice annually with the core of the Men’s group to discuss direction, progress, and vision.
