Hello my name is Dr. T.A. Nalian, the lead pastor of a new church we are launching in the great metro city of Royal Oak, Michigan.


Our dream is for you to experience real belonging, real hope, and the real God. We want you to come as you are and learn about the great journey God has for your life! We are a diverse church, and a place of inclusion, to us every culture is sacred! It doesn't matter who you are, or where you are in life, we want you to come in, and together we will Celebrate our risen Lord! We are a great place for families, singles, and our precious youth. We have come to the community of Royal Oak to serve, not to be served. Our music is soulful, and our messages relevant. We realize that we live in a very complex and challenging time, with the love and support of a caring church family, we will never let you feel alone. So come on in and experience the empowering presence of God, and allow us to help equip you, for any possibility.

our Values:

Jesus Alone 

We believe the exaltation of Jesus comes first in everything we do.

the word

We preach, proclaim, and stand on God's Word.


Every person in every tribe and background is important to God, and therefore important to us.


We believe in reaching not only those inside our walls, but impacting those outside as well.
