Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
In 2001 God sparked a dream in the hearts of six Bible College students. Through prayer, Bible study, and serving the community, the spark grew into a small flame that attracted 25 dreamers who were also passionate about starting a new Church in Metro Detroit. God used the passion and dedication of this small group to fan the flame of God’s call and Church of the King was officially launched on September 16, 2001, just five days after the tragedy of 9/11.
In 2002, our current facility on 12 Mile Road was given to us by Berkley Assembly of God…for free! What started as a spark was now a full flame as the excitement built. A strong group from Berkley Assembly joined in with what God was doing in this new congregation called Church of the King. During the next few months the building was renovated and the story about the “Miracle on 12 Mile” spread, leading to a full house for our first service on Easter Sunday in our “new” building.
The flame of passion and love that sparked the congregations humble beginning is still burning strong today. Church of the King has continued to grow both in numbers and in impact. Every year hundreds of individuals and families are impacted by what God is doing in Church of the King and through its members.
It started with a spark and has continued to stay aflame.
Being around something that is on fire makes it easy to start burning. We not only want to keep fanning the flame God has put in us, but desire to see it catch in others. We know God also wants you to experience the joy that starts with a spark. If you know you need Him to spark something in your life, we invite you to come and be a part of the story with us at Church of the King.
