The DeVos Urban Leadership Initiative believes that there is one God, the creator and sustainer of all things. Jesus Christ is the son of God and redeemer of sinful humanity. The Bible is the Word of God and through it we are called to live transformed lives by the power of the Holy Spirit. The church is the body of Christ of which Jesus is the head and all recreated people are members. We believe that transformation through Jesus Christ is the foundation for lasting change in any person’s life, including the youth served by our participants.
