Church of God in Michigan
The Church of God in Michigan is more than 14,000 people in 108 churches across the state of Michigan proclaiming a message of freedom through the message of Jesus Christ. Our unique message about the Kingdom of God expressed in this world through holy living and the unity of all believers is a shining light in this dark age. We are not the largest segment of Christianity, but we are one of the most exciting. We live our belief in Christian unity because Jesus said it would bring the world to belief in him. Jesus prayed: "My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one, Father--that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe you sent me." John 17:21 NLT
