In Detroit. For Detroit.

Why Detroit?

The question shouldn’t be “Why Detroit?”; it should be “Why Not, Detroit?” With a population of 700,000 residents, Detroit is one of the largest cities in the nation. Widely recognized as the Motor City, Detroit has always been a place of growth, collaboration, energy and innovation. Now more than ever.

We are America’s Comeback City, and while the city is on the rise, the merge of culture and church is still lacking. In the city of Detroit, 46% of the population is unchurched—meaning they've never attended a church before or haven’t been to one in the last 6 months. Fifty percent of that number is under the age of 40. The gap needs to be filled.

We want to be a part of the growth taking place in the city. From families to creatives, and emerging business to young professionals, we are in Detroit, for Detroit.

We are committed to meeting Detroiters where they are, connecting culture and Christ in this community and beyond. Forget church as it used to be. This is an Xperience—a Faith Xperience. Welcome to FX Church.
