OUR HISTORY & MISSION

Encounter Community Church is a church community that rose up out of Belding, Michigan in October of 2007 as a church plant from Impact Church in Lowell, Michigan.  The spirit behind this new church plant was born out of the simple longing to see more people discover the heart of God, the way of Jesus and their role in God's story. 

OUR PURPOSE 

To see un - and de-churched people learn to walk with Jesus

OUR MISSION/VISION

To Heal Hearts and Restore Lives (Luke 4:18-19) 

OUR VALUES

Honest Communication

Relational Discipleship

Intentional Positivity

Humility

Joyful Fun

Over the Top Generosity


We are affiliated with the Wesleyan Church and are located within the West Michigan District. To learn more about our denomination, including its mission, beliefs, and ministries, visit wesleyan.org.

Greenhouse is a relational network of churches working together to transform lives and communities through disciple making and church planting. Encounter Community Church is part of this network because we started as a church plant and we believe in this avenue of bringing Jesus Christ to rest of our community and our world.
