About Us

We’ve been gathering at the corner of Buffalo and Spencer continuously since 1917. We are committed to Christ and we are committed to spreading God’s grace in the Creston Neighborhood and the city of Grand Rapids. Everything we do is oriented around loving God more, loving our neighbors well and encouraging each other through the good and bad of life. Any kind of person belongs at Creston—we’re not perfect and don’t pretend to be. We’re all trying to find and share God’s grace as God moves in us and around us. We’ve found there is nothing more exciting, meaningful or life-changing as a relationship with Jesus Christ lived in the community of faith. All are welcome to come and see what we’re all about.
