Who We Are
Sturgis Missionary Church is committed to helping people know, love and follow Jesus.
We look forward to welcoming those who come through our doors. People say our church is warm and inviting, and we work to make it that way. We encourage people to come with questions, struggles or pain.
We gather weekly for Sunday worship services and meet in smaller groups throughout the week.
Our Vision & Values
Sturgis Missionary Church is a devoted community of believers rooted, built up, and walking in Christ in their worship of God, spreading the gospel so all acquaintances have heard and no believer is left without a church home.
- Biblically grounded
- Relationally Connected
- Leadership Empowering
Scripture is our authority. The Missionary Church is committed to this basic statement of faith.
Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human. He lived a sinless life, died to make atonement for the sins of all mankind, was resurrected and is now mediator at the right hand of the Father. He is coming again in power and glory for His believing followers, and is the only Savior of mankind (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14).
He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, regenerating all who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides and comforts the believers (John 16:7, 8, 12-15).
Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the atoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the repentant, makes him a participant of the divine nature and gives peace with God. We call this new birth (Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5).
We believe in the invisible and universal Church as the living Body of Christ. It is composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally united by faith to Christ, its living Head and sovereign Lord (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24).
We believe there are two Christian ordinances: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered in each church, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of its reality (Acts 8:36; 1 Corinthians 11:24-34
