VITAL VISION:

North Kent Community Church was established as a church plant from Eagle's Nest Church in Grand Rapids, MI. We are a full gospel ministry committed to the solid teaching of the Word of God. In addition, we recognize the ministry functions and gifts of the Holy Spirit to the local church. We believe this balanced teaching of "spirit and truth" empowers believers to fulfill their God-given destiny. It empowers them to be an effective witness to their family, friends and neighbors.


WE SEE North Kent Community Church as an established, strong, healthy church committed the solid and relevant teaching of the Word of God.


WE SEE a church committed to a heart and life of worship and praise to God. We value the importance of worship and praise in the life of a believer and the ministry of a church. We believe a time of sincere worship and praise encourages a believer to a deeper relationship with Christ. We firmly believe a heart and life committed to worship produces a heart and life full of praise.

WE SEE a church that loves to pray and values the benefits of a vital prayer life. We believe prayer to be an important part of a believer's life. Thus, weekly prayer will be valued as important times of ministry.


WE SEE a church inspired by a world vision. We believe that millions of people from around the world need to know and hear the gospel message of Jesus Christ. We desire to instill this vision in the heart of North Kent Community Church by providing mission projects and trips. We believe it is the "greatest commission" given to the church. We strongly believe that people with a vision to reach the world are well equipped to reach their community.


WE SEE a church committed to serving Christ and Community. We acknowledge the strength and health of our church and community is dependent upon the strength and health of our relationship to Christ. We see North Kent Community Church being actively involved in our community in various ways, from home groups, fellowship dinners, community events, recreational activities and any other doors the Lord may open. 

WE SEE strong children's and youth ministries that teach biblical principles in a practical way. We believe that children and youth desire healthy relationships with adults they can trust and follow their example. We see these ministries growing in proportion to the growth of the community. 

WE SEE North Kent Community Church owning it's own building and land to begin establishing the ministry. We believe that given the transition and fast growth of the community, ministry demands will continue to grow. Therefore, we envision a facility able to accommodate the ministry growth over the next three to five years.
