The Vision of The Ark
The Ark Detroit is a haven for the Exhausted Ones — those desperate for an encounter with the living God, but exhausted by the barriers we setup between us. We equip seekers with real world knowledge drawn directly from the scriptures geared toward assisting them to ultimately achieve the Gospel’s ideals in the real world areas of family, business, health and education.
As the Ark of Noah served as a haven of refuge, the Cross of Christ serves as an ark of safety to those individuals who believe on the rescuing promise of Jesus. The objective of The Ark, then, is to serve as the embodiment of that promise for God’s creation.
The Way of The Ark
At The Ark, we become equipped with real world knowledge drawn directly from the scriptures geared toward assisting us to achieve the Gospel’s ideals in the real world areas of family, business, health and education. The Ark is a haven for the “outs”—the up and outs and the down and outs, all ready to be rescued by the truth of God’s Word and the Power of the Holy Spirit.

In one God eternally existing in three persons, namely the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried and raised from the dead. That He ascended to Heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the intercessor.
That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness.
That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word and by the Holy Ghost.
In speaking with tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.
In Water Baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.
In the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead, and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, reign on the earth a thousand years.
The bodily resurrection: eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
