Practicing the way of Jesus

IMG_0301.JPG

We are a small, new faith community in Vancouver that is on a journey of practicing the way of Jesus - to be with him, to become like him, and to live as he lived.

We long to be a community where all are welcome to encounter God in practical, thoughtful, and spiritually-empowered ways.

Whatever your thoughts on church, whatever your beliefs about God, we invite you to journey with us!

Our dream

This is what it means for us to
practice the way of Jesus together in Vancouver.

JESUS IS WHY

Jesus brings life in all its fullness. The life-changing love of Jesus is at the heart of who we are and all that we do. We want you to meet Jesus because we believe that he will change your life.

LIFE IS BETTER TOGETHER

God never intended for us to go through life alone. We were created for relationship. Sure, relationships can be messy and challenging at times. But what we get in return is priceless!

EVERYBODY HAS A STORY TO TELL

Strangers become friends as we hear each other’s stories. Our community becomes a movement as our collective stories bring to life something bigger than any one of us.

 

GROWING PEOPLE CHANGE

Flourishing people take intentional steps to keep growing. It begins with a simple choice to step out in faith and begin that walk. Faith is not a destination. It is a journey. The important thing is to just start where you are.

LOVE IS A VERB

Jesus loved us with such fierce love that he chose to die on a cross for us. As Jesus loved us, we are called to love others and to help them experience this life-changing love.

ASKING QUESTIONS IS HEALTHY

We all have questions that we are afraid to ask. But asking questions is how we learn and grow. Don’t be satisfied with pat answers. Keep exploring. Keep digging. Keep asking.

 

HAVING DOUBTS IS NORMAL

Doubt is a normal part of life, including a life of faith. The goal of the faith journey is not to attain certainty; the goal is a relationship with Jesus that is rooted and established in love.

SKEPTICS WELCOME

You are invited to visit, to process your doubts and beliefs, and to explore Christianity with others. Be curious. What you believe - and we all believe something - is worth your time and consideration. Let's consider it together.

COME AND JOIN THE JOURNEY

If our community dream speaks to you, why not take a risk and join this adventure and help us make this dream into a reality for Vancouver? Join us! Let's make a difference together.

 

What we do

Let's make a difference. Together.

SUNDAY GATHERINGS

Our Sunday Gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church to worship together, learn the Scriptures, pray for one another, and create space to hear from the Spirit.

COMMUNITY GROUPS

Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. Community Groups exist to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

ALPHA

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in an open and fun environment through a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.

 

PRAYER & WORSHIP NIGHTS

We believe that we can communicate with God through prayer. We believe that He still speaks. That's why a deep prayer and worship life is central to the Christian faith. 

MARRIAGE GROUPS

Marriage groups are designed to help you grow in your marriage by helping you understand each other’s needs, communicate more effectively, and grow closer by learning methods to resolve conflict.

PARENTING GROUPS

Family life is under great pressure today and parents face bewildering choices about how to parent effectively. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference.

 

ART OF NEIGHBOURING

Jesus said that the essence of his teaching boils down to two loves: Love God and love others. Through the Art of Neighbouring, it is our passion to help bring people together in neighbourhoods throughout Vancouver.

HEALING ON THE STREETS

Healing on the Streets is one of the ways that we practice being "naturally supernatural." We simply invite people to sit on chairs so we can pray for them. We create a thin place on the streets where heaven and earth meet, and people can encounter Jesus.

LOVE VANCOUVER

We love Vancouver! And as a church, we want to be the best friend to the city by serving in tangible and significant ways to bring people together and make Vancouver a place where every single person can truly flourish.
