Discovering the Love and Security That Only Jesus Offers

When the storms of life are brewing, trust in the Lord of Life to see you through. At our church, we introduce you to our friend and savior, Jesus Christ, who is a refuge in times of trouble.

As a church, we place extreme value on community and are dedicated to fostering relationships with God and understanding His Word. While we are devout followers, we do believe it is necessary to ask questions and explore the teachings of Jesus and the Bible further. It’s as much about asking why as it is about asking how.

Lord of Life was established on May 21, 1972, and is a member of the Southeast Michigan Synod branch of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
