    1. About God

  • God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are co-equal and are one God.
  • Gen. 1:1,26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matt 28:19; I Pet 1:2; II Cor 13:14
  • 2. About Jesus Christ

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
  • Matt 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Heb 4:14,15; I Cor 15:3,4; Rom 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; I Tim 6:14,15; Titus 2:13
  • 3. About the Holy Spirit

  • The Holy Spirit is co-equal 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 also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His direction, daily.
  • II Cor 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; I Cor 2:12, 3:16; Eph 1:13; Gal 5:25; Eph 5:18
  • 4. About the Bible

  • The Bible is God's word to us. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote it. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian belief and living.
  • II Tim 3:16, 1:13; II Pet 1:20,21; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Pro 30:5
  • 5. About Human Beings

  • People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of sin that separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
  • Gen 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a, 59:1,2; Rom 3:23
  • 6. About Salvation

  • 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.
  • Rom 6:23; Eph 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Gal 3:23; Rom 5:1

    After years of drug abuse and running from God, the life of Karl Barancik was dramatically changed. He was born-again in 1974, after several run-ins with law enforcement, and was instantly delivered of many hard drugs and alcohol. This significant change brought Karl into a whole new Christian lifestyle. In 1981 Karl, with his wife Kathi, founded Faith City Church (formerly Faith Fellowship Ministries), a non-denominational, trans-ethnic, local church in the Flint, Michigan area. They met with eight other people in a rented hall on a Sunday morning; and there the church was birthed. Within a couple of weeks, they started a Bible study on Thursday nights in their home. This is where the church grew from the original eight to approximately twenty people. Within six months, Faith City purchased a building and grew in Burton, Michigan. In September 1994, we moved on the edge of town in Fenton, MI. In 2016 we purchased a church right near downtown and we moved to our present location serving Fenton, Michigan. In 2012 we added another church campus serving Palm Harbor, Florida. Many people have come through our doors over the years and felt God's will to stay and become an integral part of the ministry here. We have built a solid and trustworthy church ministry since 1981.
