What Does 4 Fires Mean?
To train and teach indigenous people find their true value as both fully Native and followers of Jesus.
To establish house fellowships in Native communities that are Bible based and Native led.
Since the 1600's three main tribes, the Ojibway, the Odawa, and the Pottawatomi have called Michigan "home."
These three tribes are very close in culture and language. When they would gather each would bring a torch from their home fire and unite them in their tribal gathering. In time they began to be spoken of as the "Three Fires People."
Our vision is to bring the fire of the Holy Spirit into our Native people, we are the 4th fire.
We believe in the triune nature of the Creator, while continuing to redeem the traditions passed down to us from our ancestors that can be used to glorify Him. Thus those who attend 4Fires may maintain their traditional ways of the old covenant while accepting the new covenant which empowers 4Fires. We believe one may be Native American Indian and a follower of Jesus.
