Welcome to FLABC Detroit...


We are preparing for our 86th Church Anniversary. This year’s Anniversary milestone is underscored with an even greater significance. As we first informed you at last year’s event, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Canadian government have begun to implement work plans for the construction of the new Gordie Howe International Bridge Project.

The property acquisition process is well underway, with the expectation that FLABC will have to vacate its current 110-year old building before the end-of-year. A new building search effort has been underway for several years now, as we have tried diligently to match-up our ministry and property needs by comparing them against many different facilities on the market.

In accordance with His providential care, God has now provided us with a new existing church building. Another church group has recently offered us, free-of-charge, to take ownership of its building and property, located in Southwest Detroit. The location is in the heart of the Hispanic community, within a block of Clark Park, near a chain of thriving businesses, and in the midst of a fertile evangelistic mission field.

However, the transition process for taking ownership of a second building is accompanied with a set of new challenges. The most critical challenge is the prospect of managing dual sets of operational expenses (insurance, utilities, security, etc). Despite these challenges, we have faith that the same gracious and benevolent God who has laid this blessing of answered prayer at our feet, is the same God that owns all resources, and will abundantly supply them to enable us.

So, it is with these recent circumstances in mind and the opportunity to reestablish ourselves in a new part of the neighborhood, we have selected the following theme verse and slogan to earmark this year’s celebration:
Mt. 16:18b: “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Slogan: “Christ’s Promise and the Revitalization of His Church in the 21st Century”
