In 2013, Pastor Travis and his wife, Jen, moved back to their hometown in South Lyon, Michigan. Travis grew up off of 10 Mile and his parents have a farm on 6 Mile. No matter where you live in metro Detroit, we are surrounded by Mile signs and these help guide us to move in the right direction. However, it can be easy to miss those signs and not pay attention to them. That is what sparked the vision for Mile City. Travis and Jen felt strongly that, in a similar way, many people have become numb to all of the signs God has placed around us to get our attention and move our lives in the right direction. They felt God leading them to create an experience for people of all backgrounds to come explore, get their questions answered, and begin moving towards God. So in 2015, a launch team of 75 people set out together to plant Mile City. Travis and Jen are now raising their family back on 10 Mile with their four children, Tristan, Lena, London and Tavin, and are honored to lead the Mile City family.
We believe God created us to be in a relationship with Him and to be like Him in character. However He didn’t create us to be robots. This created the option to go against God and his ways also known as sin. This sin has separated us from God, broken our relationship with Him and there is nothing we can do on our own effort to reestablish it.
Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3:6; Isaiah 59:1-2; Romans 3:23
We believe in one eternal God that has created all things. He exists in three equal distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who came to earth to reveal how much God loves humanity. He lived a sinless-perfect life, which made Him the perfect sacrifice to take on the sins of the world through his death on a cross. Three days later he changed everything by rising from the dead, defeating sin and death. After appearing to many witnesses He ascended into heaven and has promised one day to return to earth to fulfill Gods eternal plan.
Psalm 90:2; Genesis 1:1, 1:26-27; Colossians 1:16; John 1:1-5, 16:13; Hebrews 4:14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Titus 2:13
We believe the Bible, as a whole is the inspired word of God without error. It is like a road map to guide us through this life. It is not just any book; it is the source of Truth that it is alive and living. We believe there is a pulse in the pages and it has the ability to transform any person’s life.
Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105; Proverbs 30:5
We believe Baptism symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is an outward expression, of an inward commitment. It’s going public with our faith, declaring to the world that we have received Jesus as our Savior. It demonstrates our love and obedience to Him.
Colossians 2:12; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:16; Acts 16:31-33
We believe salvation is offered freely as a gift, only from God. This gift of grace is Jesus Christ. We receive this gift by placing our faith in His death and resurrection; believing that His work on the cross was sufficient payment to forgive us from all of our sins.
John 1:12, 3:16, 14:6; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. Those who are members of the church are those who have placed their faith in the work of Jesus Christ. All parts of the body are valuable and should work together in unity to use their God-given ability to benefit the entire body. The purpose of the church is to give God glory and to carry out Gods work throughout the world.
Matthew 16:18-19; I Corinthians 12:12-14; Acts 2:41-47; Ephesians 1:22-23; Revelation 21:2-3
We believe communion is a meal of remembrance. It is a symbol of the new covenant, representing the body and blood of Jesus Christ that paid the debt for the sins of the world. This is a meal only for believers and should never be taken in an irreverent manner.
Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
