Who We Are

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son
Jesus Christ our Lord
I Cor. 1:9.

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship,
and in breaking of bread, and in prayers
Acts 2:42

Our Fellowship

Little Flock is not affiliated to any denomination. Our desire and prayer is that the Lord will continue to lead and enable us to abide under the authority of the Holy Scriptures. Believers from different cultures and nationalities come together to worship, fellowship, and serve the Lord (Acts 2: 41-47; Rev. 5:9).
On the first day of every week, Little Flock assembles to break bread after a time of corporate and individual worship, praise, and thanksgiving. All those who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and have a clear conscience before God and man are welcome to take part in the Lord’s Table (Acts 11:28). A message from the Word of God follows.

You are welcome: If you are a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, you are welcome to join us. Our desire is that we may be edified together by our mutual faith (Rom.1:12). If you are a seeker of Truth, you are also welcome to our meetings. As the Lord gives grace, we are here to welcome you with love and respect. Our brothers and sisters in Little Flock consider it a privilege to pray for those who are facing problems in any area of their lives. So, please do not hesitate to contact us or to come to us if you desire our prayer support.
Weekly meetings are announced at the end of each Sunday service and also through this web.  Emails are also sent to people who have given us their email IDs.
A brief history

A great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries – I Cor. 16:9.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord – Isaiah 55:8.

It was in the Fall of 1987 that a brother, in obedience to the call of the Lord, started this work together with his wife and their three children. The work began in a small way in their home in East Lansing, Michigan. It started as a Children’s ministry and grew to be a Bible Study group and then into a Church, named later as Little Flock Christian Fellowship. The name was prompted by a letter from a brother in India who quoted Luke 12:32 to encourage the group. Those who are familiar with the ministry of Brother Watchman Nee (1903-1972) whom God used mightily in China, might wonder if we are connected to the Little Flock Assemblies he had started in China. We greatly appreciate Brother Nee’s ministry but have no direct relation to his work. The brother and his wife whom God used to start this ministry along with their children, had several years of close fellowship with Brother Bakht Singh (1903-2000) and his ministry in India. God used Bakht Singh, both in India and in many other countries for salvation of souls and establishment of a few thousands of churches which, as many have observed, are very close to the early church in terms of their understanding and following the teachings of the Apostles.
For a few years, the Little Flock met in the home of the family that God used as an instrument to start this ministry. In the days of the early Apostles there were many house churches (Col. 4:15; Rom. 16:5; Phil. 1:2). Even today there are many house churches all over the world. As the number of believers increased, in the year 1995 the Little Flock’s Sunday services were moved to the conference hall of a hotel in East Lansing. After the hotel was closed due to a serious fire accident in 2004, the services were held in the community halls of the Michigan State University. By God’s grace we now have the Michigan State University Alumni Chapel for our Sunday services. Weekly Bible studies and prayer meetings are held in the home of the pastor.
As time passed, some of the fellow believers moved to other cities, where we began to visit them for the purpose of praying and studying the Word with them. In 1997, the Lord led us to start monthly Bible Studies in the city of Farmington Hills, near Detroit. The grace of God was upon this ministry. The Lord blessed these meetings for the edification of many believers in that area. After waiting on the Lord for more than one year and believing that it was God’s will, on June 6, 1999 –The Lord’s Day – the believers of that area gathered together for their first worship service which included ‘breaking of bread’. That was the beginning of the church in the Detroit area. We now meet in a hall rented from the Presbyterian church of Farmington Hills. These days, believers from different cities in the Detroit area partake in these meetings. Praise the Lord!
For about three years starting in 1999, some of us periodically visited a sister who had moved to Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. In the year 2000, a few more believers moved into this area from India, and they began to call us to visit them and to hold prayer meetings and Bible studies for them, as and when possible. In response to this Macedonian call (Acts 16:9), the Lord enabled us to visit them once a month. As we  continued those meetings, the Lord gave us a growing burden for this area and we began to pray earnestly seeking the Lord’s guidance for further ministry over there.

On February 21, 2003, we had an all-night prayer meeting in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. This was attended by several believers both from the Michigan and Toronto regions. The next day, being Saturday, some of the believers continued to wait on the Lord seeking His guidance.  Believing that it was God’s will, on February 23 – The Lord’s Day we had our first worship service at Brampton, a city near Toronto, Ontario.  Presently, the believers here are immigrants from other countries, which reminds us of the church at Antioch (Acts 11:19-24). They have taken the name Antioch Christian Fellowship for their assembly. They presently meet for worship services on Sundays in a conference hall at the Marriott Hotel, Mississauga, and for prayer at homes of believers.
Thus, we were led step by step by the skillfulness of His loving hands to move on with the work of the Lord. We had no plans of our own for these areas. It has always been our desire that we should not do God’s work in our own way or for our own satisfaction. We desire to be led by the Lord.
Little Flock has not been free from attacks of the enemy (Eph. 6:12). Apostle Paul says: A great and effectual door is opened for me, and there are many adversaries (I Cor. 16:9). The enemy at various times tried to disturb the work by his subtle means, but the Lord gave us victory. We are aware that we are called to be His coworkers and laborers together with Him (I Cor. 3:9; II Cor. 6:1); it is the Lord who is building His church (Matt. 16: 18). The battle is the Lord’s (II Chro. 20:15).

As of now, the Little Flock does not own any building. We are indeed like strangers and pilgrims (Heb. 11:13).  We know that the Lord does not live in buildings made by hands (II Chro.2:6; 6:17). Once walking through a corn field, the Lord said: Here is one who is greater than the temple (Matt. 12:6). The Lord dwells in the midst of His people (Rev. 1:13; Matt. 18:20). We are satisfied with what the Lord has given to us for now.  If it pleases Him, He will surely give us buildings for His work, in His own time.

Please pray for us.
