Our Canadian Foursquare vision for ministry is interdenominational in scope. We have no no desire to compete or compare. We are thankful for every body of believers who love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ. The statements below go through what we believe.

WE BELIEVE IN:
THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).
THE ETERNAL GODHEAD
We believe God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).
THE FALL OF MANKIND
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God, but by voluntary disobedience fell from perfection (Romans 5:12, 19).
THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
SALVATION THROUGH GRACE
We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8, 9).
REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE
We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (Luke 24:46, 47; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; 1 John 1:9).
THE NEW BIRTH
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).
DAILY CHRISTIAN LIFE
We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).
BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER
We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matthew 28:19, 20).
We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).
BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).
THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).
THE GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit has spiritual gifts for the Christian; and that believers should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22, 23).
We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticisms (Philippians 4:5; James 5:19, 20).
We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible church of Christ (Acts l6:5; Hebrews 10:24, 25).
We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).
We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God; and there receive eternal life or death (Romans 2:1-16; 2 Corinthians 5:10).
We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Saviour (Revelation 20:10-15).
We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (Acts 1:8; 8:4-8).
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15).
