Our Story

A Vision for Church Planting

There are nearly 5 million people in Metro Detroit. It seems like there are a lot of churches, but did you know that Metro Detroit is one of the most "unchurched" areas of the nation? There are not nearly enough churches for the number of people in our city!

Bell Creek Community Church's first Sunday service was March 2, 2003. Pastor Joel Lindman felt God speaking to his heart to launch another church. In September of 2002, the Bell Creek Church Plant team began to pray and plan for a launch in Livonia. With 40 adults and 30 kids, we set out and enjoyed our first service in the Franklin High School auditorium on the corner of Joy and Merriman.  Now we have our own church building at 30000 5 Mile Road, Livonia 48154.  Come visit us!

Why Plant a Church in Livonia?

There are a 100,000 people in Livonia, and there are churches in the area, but many who live in Livonia and the surrounding communities have given up on church...but they are still interested in who God is. Ten years after we started we are about 400 people.

Who are we affiliated with?

We are not part of a denomination but we are connected theologically, locally, nationally and internationally by relationships with other evangelical churches and institutions for mutual encouragement and accountability.

Where are we going?

We are thrilled to have our own beautiful church building in the heart of Livonia, but the building is not the main thing.  Our primary focus will always be on teaching the Word of God, Prayer and Discipleship.

Our story is continuing at 30000 5 Mile Road - come join us! God has already taken us on some unexpected twists and turns and we're excited to see what happens next!
