A word about Maranatha Bible Church

My family and I moved to Grand Rapids after living as missionaries in Africa for about 8 years. We did not know anyone at the church, but on the first day we were welcomed as if we had been attending here all our life. Our family has grown in the time we have been here and made friends that we already consider dear to our hearts. We are blessed to call Maranatha home and look forward to serving the church here for many, many more years to come.

Favorite Verses

Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
