Though all of our colors, backgrounds and life situations are unique, we are a unified group committed to fulfill the purposes of Christ. Join us this Sunday — in person or online — you’ll be changed! Our Commitment To train DWO members and provide corporate opportunities for them to fulfill the biblical mandate of the church. (Luke 19:10; 1 John 3:8; John 10:10; Ephesians 3:10) To operate in Godly Character, Integrity and Good Stewardship. (1 Timothy 3:2-7) To come before you sanctified and ready to minister the Word of God. (Romans 15:15-16; 1 Timothy 4:12-13; 1Peter 5:2) To teach the Word of God in a practical manner, to empower you to live the abundant life as described in scripture, and fulfill your divine purpose through the development of individuals, families, and the Godly wisdom necessary to reach destiny. (Jeremiah 3:14-15; Jeremiah 29:11; Ephesians 2:10) To provide a church experience that is dynamic, contemporary, cutting edge, and where the presence of God is consistently manifested and the Power of God is regularly demonstrated. (Isaiah 43:18-19; 2 Chronicles 5:11-14; Acts 2:38-39) To follow the divine mandates that God gives to DWO to fully contribute to the body of Christ as a whole. (1 Peter 5:2-3; Ephesians 4:11-16; Jeremiah 23:3-4) To give Spiritual guidance and support through “Life Challenges and Transitions” through our Member Services. (Galatians 6:2,10) We Believe All scripture is given by the inspiration of God. There is One True God manifest in 3 distinct persons, the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God and are in need of salvation. Salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance of sin. Sanctification is the will of God for all believers through obedience to the Word of God and the leading of the Spirit. Every believer should participate in water baptism and the observance of Holy Communion. Every believer should seek after The Gift of the Holy Ghost with the manifestation of speaking in other tongues. The Church (the body of Christ) consists of all who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Our 7 Distinctives The vision and mission of DWO makes us unique as a church body. Our commitments: 1. Driven by the purposes of Christ: To seek and save that which is lost. Luke 19:10 To destroy the works of the devil. 1 John. 3:8 To live and teach others to live an abundant life. John 10:10 2. Development of the person 3. Destiny Development 4. Development of the Family 5. Diversity of People (A church for all colors) 6. A Dynamic Church (Contemporary and Accelerating) 7.

Organization Overview:  The International League for the Protection of Horses - Michigan (ILPH - MI) is a horse's best friend. This nonprofit 501 (c) (3) corporation is the Michigan chapter of an international organization that is dedicated to the education of horse owners and to the welfare, rescue and rehabilitation of horses. This ensures that horses will be enjoyed and live full, happy lives. All funds raised by ILPH - MI, which is based in Dansville, are used for the protection of horses. Working for a world where Horses are used and Never Abused. We believe that horses should be employed as a show horse, pasture buddy, or working on a farm. They must have proper care and attention to make their lives complete. Protecting horses from abuse and alleviating their suffering by rehabilitating them, and educating people are our top priorities. Description The International League for the Protection of Horses - Michigan receives horses that are in need of care and rehabilitation. Once we accept a horse, we evaluate it to determine its needs and how it can best be used in the future. This process is done by a team that includes a veterinarian, equine dentist, physical therapist, farrier and several professional grooms. After a horse has received all the appropriate care and has recovered, it is loaned out to be used. In some cases a problem situation can be solved by educating the horse owner and it is not necessary to actually remove the horse. Although our work is focused on helping Michigan horses, Larry Heuer, president of ILPH-MI, helped in the equine rescue efforts that took place in September of 2005 following Hurricane Katrina. He helped distribute food to horses in southern Mississippi and rescue 26 horses. After this experience, ILPH-MI officials decided that providing assistance following future natural disasters would be part of our operations and efforts.
