Kentwood Community Church (KCC) values diversity, evident in the eclectic gathering of people on the weekends and throughout the week. Attendees come from a broad variety of socio-economic backgrounds and are a blend of many races and cultures. What brings them all together is the desire to experience authentic relationships, unconditional love, and growth in their relationship with Jesus Christ. KCC is connected to the Wesleyan denomination of churches. Kentwood Community Church aspires to reach all people, engage the community, awaken spiritual growth, and launch everyone into service. Its mission is to obey Christ by reaching out to those who are spiritually lost and raising up fully devoted followers of Christ who love God completely and others unconditionally.
