Our Vision: To see the transformation of a city that transformed the world.
Our Mission: To BE the Church outside the church, living lives of worship through evangelism and discipleship that help bring about social transformation. As such, Mission: Go Detroit is more than a place, it is a lifestyle based on the presence of Jesus: Living in His Presence; Listening & Responding to His Voice; and Walking in His Favor.
One of the ways we do this is by entering through the "back doors" of people's lives. Back Door Ministry is all about introducing people to Jesus through the back door of their lives. When traditional church is not an option, relationships are. Strangers use the front door, but in the inner city friends come through the back door. Our goal is to build relationships so we're invited in through the back door of people's lives.
As such, our desire is to be a presence based - prayer centered ministry in the Greater Detroit Metro area that brings about life transformation through Christ as we wait on Him; worship Him with our praise; living lives according to God's word.
We desire to be a gathering of worshipers, led by Biblically gifted shepherds, centered around Biblical preaching and teaching of the Gospel, with the focus of reaching the lost and scattered, while reproducing ourselves as members of God's Kingdom as expressed on earth, who understand and utilize their spiritual gifts.
We desire to be Christ-like disciples who make Christ-like disciples -- "Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, 'Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.' And God granted his request." ~1 Chronicles 4:10 (NIV)
