Greetings, are there any brothers in the Detroit area that can recommended a New Covenant church (yes I know that is double speak but you know what I mean).I did a search for the keyword 'Detroit' and the latest thread that I could find was from 2006 :-).I've been a lurker for the last 8 months or so but thought that I'd introduce myself. My family and I are looking for a church home (without much luck) and in my frustration I thought that I would ask for your help.We're tired of the machine, hyper-prosperity garbage and looking for some like minded believers who believe in:-The Lordship of Jesus Christ and being a mirror of Him-The gifts of the Spirit without flakiness-People who place a higher value on the fruit of the Spirit rather than the gifts of the Spirit.-Freedom from sin-Fellowship and praying-The joy of the Lord and freedom from legalism-BrokennessWe have been churchless for the last 8 months, and I miss the body terribly.Please, take this in the spirit that was written brothers and sisters. :-)In Christ,Earl J-
How about Revival Tabernacle? Here's the church website: http://www.revivaltab.org/staff.php
Hi Earl - I attend Calvary Chapel Oakland County, in Troy, at Long Lake and John R. http://ccoaklandcounty.com/ I've been popping in now and then for years, and recently started attending full time. It is a solid Bible Church, but I haven't really gotten to know the people yet and don't know if the gifts of the Spirit are in evidence. They meet the criteria you listed, as far as I can tell.I have never been to Revival Tabernacle, but if the senior pastor is friends with Dave Wilkerson, he can't be all bad!Oh, and welcome to the forum!
Thank you both for your suggestions, I will look into both of them. If you happen to think of any others, please feel free to let me know!Blessings,Earl J
