About Grand Rapids West International

The majority of our congregation is from the Haitian community of the Grand Rapids area. This is why many refer to Grand Rapids West International as the "Haitian Church of Grand Rapids". Our worship services and different activities are usually bilingual, in English and Haitian Creole. However, Haiti is not the only country represented at GRWI. Some members of GRWI are from other countries, including the United States.

At Grand Rapids West International, God is always present, holiness is practiced, beginners are welcome, grace and forgiveness are offered, and hope is alive. We are a unified community in dialogue with God and in fellowship with one another.

Our Belief

These are the beliefs Grand Rapids West International holds to be true:

We believe in one God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes in the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.

We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.

Our Mission

The mission of Grand Rapids West International Church of the Nazarene is to:

  • Reach out to those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and help them become disciples of Christ.
  • Equip the body of Christ by helping everyone to develop Christlikeness characters.
