To bring a Christ centered gospel to our neighbors, ministering to the whole person, finding the lost, empowering the least and catching up the left behind.
Guided by scriptures:
Matthew 28:19 and Luke 4: 18-19
WHY DO WE EXIST?
For the glory of GOD, for the good of the church, and the empowerment of our community through HIS son CHRIST JESUS.
WHAT’S WITH THE NAME?
Most people associate the term Commonwealth with an Empire headed by a royal monarch. Our Pastor’s favorite living monarch is Queen Elizabeth II, Sovereign of the British Monarchy. Many in that Empire look to her for strength and guidance, but as Christians we are to look to Christ as our King, as our guide and as our Lord. Like Abraham in the book of Hebrews (11:8-9) we’re truly walking by faith, thus the faith portion. We are believing that GOD will bless our plant to become a tree that produces bountiful fruit, provides shade to those seeking comfort and one that grows strong and fast deeply rooted in the community.
WHAT ARE WE CALLED TO DO?
We believe that we are called to be fishers of men in our community of Redford Township, Michigan and its surrounding 20 mile radius around it. It’s our embodiment of Acts 1:8 and Matthew 28:19-20.
WHO LEADS US ?
The Commonwealth of Faith is led by our Senior Pastor North American Mission Board Missionary Torion Bridges who is a husband, father, godfather, son and servant of Christ Jesus. A lifelong Michigander, he enjoys traveling around the state with his family, reading historical literature, watching the Michigan State Spartans, Detroit Tigers and New England Patriots. He is married to his best friend Jasmine J. Bridges and together they are the proud parents of Hunter R.G. Bridges and a Maltese dog, Bailey Dantonio.
