Discovery Church is A PLACE TO BELONG: a place of growing in God with each other and bringing Jesus’ new life to the world around us.
We join the Holy Spirit’s work to invest in God’s people and our neighbors so that we become, personally and communally, the church which looks more and more like Jesus.
Prompted by the Holy Spirit, prayer is the foundation for all we do. We pray not as routine, but on the promise that Jesus carries our prayers to God who hears and responds to His children’s prayers.
We have a vision for Discovery Church to be a “House of Prayer” Church, and to become a hub church to model and resource others in how to be a church that is growing in the power of the Holy Spirit and prayer.
As individuals and a church, we offer an atmosphere of God’s welcoming grace and hospitality so that in word and service we share the good news of Jesus’ new life to those the Holy Spirit leads us to.
Discovery Church aims to serve our immediate neighborhood through community events and to aid our neighbors all over the world by partnering with:
Bridge Street Ministries (Formerly Bridge Street House of Prayer/BSHOP)
BSHOP is a community of people who are surrendered to the love of Jesus working in and through them to bring transformation in their neighborhood and through various ministry opportunities. BSHOP desires to see revival come to Bridge Street in Grand Rapids.
YoungLives has a vision to reach teen moms by entering their world, modeling the unconditional love of Christ, and encouraging them to become the women and mothers God created them to be.
