We are a community of believers in Jesus Christ. We are being transformed into the image of Jesus Christ more every day. But, we are not perfect. We still make mistakes, and our lives are still a bit messy at times. Maybe you can relate.
We are a church that meets people where they are. We don’t expect people to have their lives perfectly in order. We welcome the sinner and the saint, the prince and the beggar, the hero and the outcast. Anyone who wants to be made whole through the power of the Holy Spirit is invited to belong. If you are looking for friends who will encourage you when you are down, rejoice with you when you triumph, and draw you closer to the Lord, you found the right place. That is exactly who we are.

Jesus is love, joy, peace that passes understanding, a strong foundation during the storms of life, and forgiveness for every wrong you have ever committed. Would you like to meet Him?
Jesus is the reason we exist.
Jesus is the center of what we do.
Jesus makes all the difference.
Being a Jesus follower is an awesome experience. Intimacy with Him isn’t something that happens overnight. It takes time, just like any relationship. It starts as we explore who Jesus is and connect to Him. As we grow in Him, we become co-laborers with Christ (1 Cor. 3:9) and even get the privilege of leading other people to Him. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your family and friends accept Christ for the first time.
Jesus is at the center of each of these stages. His Spirit is what guides us, speaks to us, and empowers us to know Him, labor with Him, and lead others to Him. Everything we do at The Hub Owosso is centered on Christ and aims to help each person navigate these relationship stages to become a leader for Jesus.
The Person, the work, and the power of the Holy Spirit is fundamental to who we are as a people. We unabashedly own the truth that the Spirit can transform us, possess us, equip us, and empower us. It is the work of the Holy Spirit that sanctifies us, makes us holy, sets us apart for sacred service, and seals us for eternity’s sake. It is the Spirit that convicts us of sin and enables us to overcome sin. It is the Holy Spirit that can breathe supernatural gifts into us, for Jesus’ sake. He is the Comforter promised by Jesus and the witness of our redemption (Gal 5:22–23).
Salvation is the forgiveness of sins through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. All people are born into sin (Psalm 51:5; Psalm 58:3) and in need of a Savior. By accepting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and asking Him to be Lord of your life, his perfect righteousness is imputed to the sinner. Then, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are transformed more and more in the perfect image of Jesus.
Death is the result of mans sin. When Adam sinned (Genesis 3) death entered the world and the sin nature is present within all men. Sin is what separates us from holy God and is the reason that He came to earth in the form of a man, Jesus Christ, and was crucified on a cross. Only by accepting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ can sin and its consequences be overcome.
We are a people of the Bible—the Old and New Testaments, supernaturally inspired, preserved across time, cultures, and continents, delivered to us, useful for reproof and instruction, for righteousness. The Scripture is our backstop, the ultimate field of inquiry and judgment, the measure of conduct, faith, and practice. Whatever the question, whatever the test, whatever comes before us, in the end, it is the Scripture, above all other disciplines, that informs and defines us. All other sources of knowledge fall beneath its shadow (2 Tim 3:14–17).
Love God with your whole self. And, love your neighbors as yourself. The Scripture tells us this is the sum of the Law and the Prophets. When a teacher of the Law sought to test Jesus (Luke 10), asking, “What must I do to have eternal life?” Jesus asked him what he read in the Scripture. When the man replied with the Great Commandments, Jesus approved, saying, “You have answered well; do this and you will live.” It was this exchange that birthed the seminal parable of the Good Samaritan. As a people in the pursuit of holiness, the Great Commandments clothe us.
Though difficult for the human mind to fully comprehend, our one God expresses himself in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity serves a unique role to bring God glory and accomplish his purposes in the world (Gen 1:26; 2 Cor 13:14)
The distributions of gifts by the Holy Spirit for the edification of the body of Christ is not determined by gender. God has poured out his Spirit on all people, and both sons and daughters will prophesy—and teach, and shepherd the flock. In Christ, in the kingdom of God, that which once divided us—Jew, Gentile; slave, free; male, female—no longer separate. From the earliest days of the Church of God movement, we’ve celebrated the ministry leadership of outstanding women clergy and continue to do so (Acts 2:17; Gal 3:28).
