Treasuring Christ Church will seek to advance the gospel in Southeast Michigan, North America, and the world through developing and multiplying disciples and churches through the weekly rhythms of gathering and scattering.
Treasuring Christ will gather weekly to remember and celebrate our great God and Savior. We will gather to worship, to build up God’s people, and to be strengthened for the God’s mission in all of life and to the ends of the earth. Believer, seeker, or skeptic, all are welcome at Treasuring Christ as we seek to know and follow Jesus Christ.
Treasuring Christ will also scatter every week to live out the various callings that God has placed upon our lives–parents, children, students, employers, employees, friends, and neighbors. In these places and with these people, we will seek to declare and display the gospel as we learn people’s stories, engage their questions, share meals together, love people where they are at, serve their needs, show that Jesus is better, and declare the gospel with clarity and boldness.
As Treasuring Christ scatters throughout the week, we will gather in small groups to share life together as a family and to grow as followers of Jesus. We want to share life with one another because we were created and redeemed to be in relationship with God and one another. In turn, God uses relationships in the body of Christ to shape who we are in Him. Small groups provide an occasion to share a meal together, discuss God’s Word, and spur one another on to faithfully declare and display the gospel in all of life.
Treasuring Christ’s mission to make disciples requires that we develop leaders. Leaders are disciples makers. We will seek to develop leaders to serve within Treasuring Christ and be sent out to serve and plant churches. In partnership with other like-minded churches, Treasuring Christ will provide summer internship opportunities and residential training opportunities through Generation LINK. The goal of Generation LINK at Treasuring Christ is to raise up laborers who will impact nations for the kingdom in the marketplace, as church planters, and as pastors.
Treasuring Christ believes the best way to advance the gospel is to plant more healthy churches. To that end, we are committed to be a church planting church. Through raising up leaders from within our church and partnering with other like-minded churches, Treasuring Christ will seek to plant churches throughout Southeast Michigan, North America, and to the ends of the earth.
