Our Beliefs

The one true and living God, who eternally exists in three persons in unity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The divine inspiration and authority of Holy Scripture.
The original perfection of creation; the inherent corruptness of humanity through the Fall; the necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone, and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant.
The Virgin Birth, sinless life, atoning death, triumphant resurrection, ascension and continuing intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ. His second coming and eternal kingdom reign.
The justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ, their security as they remain in Him and their future resurrection in an incorruptible body.
The Sacraments of Baptism by immersion and of the Lord’s Supper.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs empowering the Church for its mission in the world.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world.
Christ’s leadership of the Church through Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers and elders for the unity, maturity and growth of the Church.
The privilege and responsibility of wise stewardship of all that God has given, including the practice of tithes and offerings to the local church.

Our Priorities

Discipleship
Jesus commanded us to go and disciple the nations. Instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. (Matthew 28:18-20) We value a holistic discipleship process that will result in followers of Jesus becoming Christ-like in their behaviour. His life impacting every area of our lives so that we are manifesting the greater works that He promised we would do. (John 14:12)

Worship
Worship is the purpose of creation and salvation. We are to give God pleasure as we make worship our lifestyle. True worship is glorifying God in all we think, say and do. Worship is our response to God for who He is and what He has done and it should be both personal and corporate. When we worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth we encounter His glory and we are transformed into His likeness.

Spirit- Driven
God is looking for an intimacy-driven church, a spirit-driven, glory-driven church. God is not looking for a moral people who do good works on His assembly line. He does not need workers; He wants lovers. We value the presence of Holy Spirit. We expect people to interact with the living God in our gatherings. We will be a New Testament church where gifts of the Spirit are in full expression: healing, miracles, prophecy etc … The only interaction you have ever had or will have with God is through the agency of Holy Spirit.

Excellence
We value a standard of excellence in all we say or do. The Bible instructs us, “Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.” Colossians 3:17 (The Message) Mediocrity and half-hearted effort is not worthy of our high calling as Ambassadors of the Kingdom.

Equipping For Ministry
We value the role and function of 5-fold ministers to equip believers for ministry. “Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13 (NLT)

Team Ministry
We believe and value doing ministry as a team. Team ministry is the best approach to manifest the full nature of the New Testament church. We are committed to the success of one another and celebrate the gifting and callings of every individual. Our highest value is on what we can accomplish together as a community of faith. “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” Ephesians 4:16 (NLT)

Our History

We are members of an Apostolic network called The Apostolic Church In Canada. Our desire is to raise up:

“A vibrant and authentic Apostolic community across Canada.”

The Apostolic Church was first formed in 1916 as a result of the 1904 Welsh revival, we are a Trinitarian, Pentecostal network of churches with a strong commitment to mission. We have established Apostolic movements in over 90 countries, many of whom are self-governing.
