No matter who you are or where you've been, you're welcome here.
Welcome to Rehoboth!
You might be wondering, "What's with the name?" Our name, Rehoboth (pronounced Re-Ho-Beth), is the name Isaac chose for a well he dug in ancient Bible times. It means "Room for All" and that is why, way back in 1890, we took the name. We strive to be a church that accepts everyone as they are and where they are. Our unique approach to ministry has led to consistent growth for 125 years!
Our Sunday service starts at 9:30 AM. If you are looking for true community; where people genuinely love and care for each other you have found the right place. We are a community that is committed to sharing the wonderful truth that in Jesus Christ there really is "Room for All." Our missions is to win people to Jesus Christ and equip them to serve! We believe that all followers of Jesus Christ find true joy in serving others. We are actively involved in our community, nation and world.
Our mission is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. That's how we're able to make a difference, and it's the driving force behind everything we do.
A church isn't a building—it's the people. Our church is located between Cadillac and McBain, Michigan. No matter if you join us here or online, we think you'll find friendly people who are excited to get to know you!
Wherever you are in life, you matter and you have a purpose. We want to help you become the person God has created you to be. Your journey has a next step and we'll help you find it. It could start with serving, finding God's vision for your life, giving, or joining us regularly. You don't have to take the next step alone. With a strong community of friends, you can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you. Come find a Life Group to join you on your journey.
Strong families start with solid foundations. That's why we partner with parents to help raise the next generation to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Your children and teens have opportunities throughout the week to grow relationships with each other and with God.
Our community and world
We are passionate about serving the global community and demonstrating God's love to others. Whether in person or online, individually or in groups, within our church or around the world, we are focused on supporting and engaging in relationships that provide relief and restoration to a hurting world.
There is one God who is the creator and ruler of the universe; eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1,26, 27, 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 John 5:7-8)
The Bible is God’s perfect Word. It is the inspired and the only infallible, authoritative and complete Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)
Jesus is the Son of God. He is fully man and fully God. He is co-equal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15) and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind (John 3:16). He rose from the grave three days later demonstrating His power over death, hell, and the grave (Mark 16:6). He ascended to the Father where He prays for us (Hebrews 7:25, 1 Timothy 2:5), he is preparing an eternal place for us (John 14:1-4) and he will come again for us (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. (Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13, 14:16-17, Ephesians 1:13, 5:18)
Jesus launched the church to create true community and reach the world with the gospel; we are all designed to be in true community with other members of the church (Ephesians 1:20-23, Hebrews 10:25, Proverbs 27:17).
The supreme evidence of Christian discipleship is not that we keep all the rules, but rather that we have love for one another (John 13:35).
All mankind needs forgiveness from sin (Romans 3:23) in order to enjoy a full life now and to share eternity with God. This forgiveness is available through God’s free offer of grace (Ephesians 2: 8-10), through trusting what Jesus Christ has done for us on the Cross (Romans 10:9-10), and by the power of Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:22). This relationship with God is essential to enjoy the heaven and to avoid hell (John 5:24,28 and 29; Philippians 2:9-10).
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (John 3:16)
Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
As a church, we baptize our children and dedicate them into the loving care of the entire church.
For adults that have not been baptized; baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to “fulfill all righteousness.”
Communion is a celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. It is a means of grace for nourishing and strengthening disciples of Christ.
We practice communion throughout the year. Welcome all who have a relationship with Jesus to join us for communion.
- Our history starts in 1876 with the arrival of William Taylor and his family. He came looking for a place that had prospects of growing into a village. He ended up in Richland Township in Missaukee County.
- In 1882 the Lucas family settled into section 16 and eventually that became Lucas Michigan. Hollanders (from the Netherlands) came to Michigan in 1847 seeking religious freedom. Those early Hollanders banded together to organize Rehoboth Reformed Church. Most of the original 26 members came by new found faith (22 of the 26)!
- On January 22nd 1890 Rev. Meulendyke and Rev. Duiker formally organized Rehoboth Reformed Church.
- By keeping focused on God's calling for our church we have made it over 125 years without ever dividing or splitting.
We pray you will come join us one Sunday and experience our rich history that has seen steady growth for over 125 years Please come join us, we have room for all!
