Pastor Dave Koop Teaching Children To Flourish In A “New Canada”   Recently I have been asked by parents for suggestions on how to raise their children in our “New Canada”. What do they mean? They’re referring to the secularization of a nation that was once called Christian.  When a nation moves away from having God above country, the country inadvertently takes the role of God.   This isn’t something new. Parents throughout history have wrestled with similar issues. As the world heads into uncharted territory with the advancement of technology and an increasi ..read more

3 Essentials in Sharing the Gospel

Pastor James Fam 3 Essentials in Sharing the Gospel Everyone who comes to faith in Jesus has a different story. Your spiritual journey probably started differently than others at your church. I often think of my testimony as being quite ordinary and not as remarkable as those dramatic tales of conversion that feature supernatural healing or include miraculous signs and wonders. “No one would ever come to Jesus because of my testimony.” At least that was what I thought until a conversation that took place after I shared my testimony in church several years after becoming Christian. A g ..read more

Pastor Dave Koop Famous Last Words Over the course of history there have been some interesting last words that have also revealed where people’s hearts were at.

Pastor Fari Maghami Palm Sunday: Journeying with Jesus Towards the Cross “The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord. Blessed is the King of Israel!” Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written: “Do not be afraid, Daughter of Zion; see, your King is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.”  At first His disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize tha ..read more

Why Serve?

Pastor Karen Kepkay Why Serve? My family has a long history and experience in the food industry in my native city Maracaibo, and servanthood is truly part of our DNA. My grandparents, uncles and parents all have owned and run their small and large scale Chinese restaurants. And so growing up, the restaurant was my only playground which I quite enjoyed and learned from.   My parents were always intentional in teaching me the value of work and serving others by putting me to work in the family business. So, my first waiting-table experience was at the age of 12. Of course, the ..read more

3 Ways To Be More Generous

Pastor Brad Bergman 3 Ways To Be More Generous Take a second to think about the most generous people you know. How would you describe them to others?  I think fondly about the people who come to my mind because they are so enjoyable to be around. Generosity is an attractive quality.  Conversely, I find spending a lot of time around stingy people difficult. Think of the character Ebenezer Scrooge from Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. His miserly ways pushed away everyone who cared about him, and his greed overwhelmed and consumed every part of him. Generosity was the key t ..read more

Pastor Allan Burnett The Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the early Church!  I will not soon forget sitting in our Canada Day service this past July 1st. For those of you reading this that are not Canadian, this is the day set apart in Canada to celebrate and pray for our country. That day however, the Holy Spirit clearly also had something else He purposed to accomplish, as Pastor Cheryl paused at one point in the service and said she had a “Word of Knowledge.” A word of knowledge is a gift of the Holy Spirit, where He gives you information about someone or something that you wouldn ..read more

Three Keys to Dealing with Opposition

Pastor Chris Karuhije Three Keys to Dealing with Opposition We are still in the beginning stages of studying the Book of Acts, but one thing is already certain: If you and I are going to do something great for God, it will attract opposition from the enemy. We see this in Acts 3 after the healing of the lame man, the extraordinary event that saw a 40-year-old man who had not been able to work since birth miraculously receive strength in his legs. From that miracle, Acts 4:4 tells us that just out of the men, 5000 people came to faith. Naturally, opposition and tribulation immediately ..read more

The Snowball Effect of Faith

Jacqui Bishop The Snowball Effect of Faith Although it’s been an unusually warm winter this year here on the West Coast in North America, we did have one big storm and I couldn’t keep my kids from running outside to play in the fluffy white stuff. A snowy morning means the hats, gloves, coats pants and boots are going to be pulled from the recesses of the closet and put on with haste. They are out before breakfast, so I get a little bit of time to enjoy the quiet with a cup of coffee. There is almost nothing better on a winter morning when the world is blanketed in white, the snow dam ..read more

Why Does God Perform Miracles?

Pastor James Fam Why Does God Perform Miracles? The Book of Acts is filled with miracles and supernatural signs and wonders. In Chapter 3, we read about a lame man sitting by the temple gate called Beautiful. As Peter and John were about to enter the temple, the man asked them for money.  This is what follows: “Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth ..read more
