Detroit is a "border city" on an international border - a daily reminder that we are following Jesus beyond every border...
- beyond the human-made borders that exist between one another because of differences
- beyond the borders that exist in our own hearts - willing to follow Jesus into everything He has for us without limitations and in spite of our fears
- beyond geographical borders to other cities and nations, planting churches and partnering with existing churches. "Go and make disciples of all nations." Matthew 28:19
OUR VISION & MISSION
Border City Church was birthed in 2017, with these verses as our vision:
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives... to appoint unto them that mourn... And they shall rebuild the old ruins... they shall repair the ruined cities..."
excerpt from Isaiah 61:1-4
These verses show us how God wants to work in each of our lives:
- Heal our hearts
- Free us from self-defeating thoughts, habits and patterns
- Appoint/set us in His Church family to find our God-ordained calling
- Rebuilds ruins in our lives and makes us into rebuilders of ruins around us
- Send us out with the Good News to help others experience all of these things with us.
