The Bible Believers Church of South Lyon began meeting in December of 2007 as a Bible study held on Thursday nights. The Lord provided a free building on Rushton road where we met for the first month of Bible studies. Grace and I were living in Toledo, Oh at the time and were members of Hope Baptist Church. After only one month of Thursday night Bible studies, we decided to pack up and move to South Lyon to start holding regular church services and see what the Lord would do. With much fear of failure and doubt in our hearts, we started holding services on the first Sunday in January of 2008. Services were originally held in the living room of a house in South Lyon. The original group was made up of a total of eleven people, including three children and one teenager. The church met in the living room for two weeks until the cafeteria at the Kent Lake Elementary School became available to start renting. Almost immediately God began sending people who had a burden to see a King James Bible believing, old fashioned preaching, hymnal using church established in the South Lyon area.
After about three months we had outgrown the house and desperately needed to find a new place to meet. After a little searching God provided a place right in the middle of South Lyon across from the park. God continued to bless the work and the church family grew slowly and steadily.
In the summer of 2009 I quit my job and went full time at the church. God blessed and provided week by week not only for this little struggling church but also for myself and my family.
By mid summer 2010 it was once again obvious that the current facilities were not going to accommodate the growing church much longer and another move was going to have to be made. After searching our options, it seemed as though the church was going to have to begin trying to get a loan in order to purchase a much needed church building. However, the Lord worked out the details so that He ended up providing BBC a debt free church building along with almost three acres of property in a beautiful portion of Lyon Township!!! Glory to His name!!
Philp 4:19, “ But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
We went to work in late September of 2010 and worked our fingers to the bone gutting and remodeling our new meeting house in order to be ready for the first service in mid November. After getting settled in church continued to grow slowly and steadily.
As the church has grown we have seen the need again for more space in the church building. After much research, prayer and seeking our options the church decided in September 2018, by unanimous vote of the members, that it is time to begin the process of adding on to the building that God had given us.
We are very excited about what God is doing at BBC and look forward with much anticipation to what He will do in the future. The Lord has always provided for this ministry and we trust He will continue to as we move forward under His leadership.
