"Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing."
There is one true God, who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of us all. He revealed Himself as one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible is divinely inspired and the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16, 17; II Peter 1: 20, 21)
We are created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him. Because we rejected His Lordship, sin entered the world, therefore we experience the consequences, which are sickness, death and judgement.
We believe God’s one and only Son Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Christ died for our sins, was buried, resurrected and is now seated in the presence of God the Father. The work on the cross is victorious, bringing freedom from the power of the enemy.
We believe that divine healing for the body is provided by Christ’s death. (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16)
The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are co-equal and co-eternal.
We are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
In the infilling of the Holy Spirit, with the initial physical evidence of speaking with other tongues, which gives power for service, and is manifested in the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit. (Acts 1:8, 2:4; Galatians 5:22-23; I Corinthians 12-14)
Water Baptism and Communion are for those who put faith in Christ Jesus.
We believe in the return of Jesus for His bride, the Church. Our eternal destiny is either heaven or hell.

It all began at Azuza Street, on April 9th, 1906. It was a revival that touched the whole world, including our church. Just like in Acts 2, there was an outpouring of the Holy Spirit through miracles, people of all ethnicities gathered in unity, and many were saved.
R. E. McAllister, the first recorded Canadian to visit Azuza Street was greatly impacted by this. He returned to Canada with a passion to see God do the same in the Ottawa Valley. He connected with three ladies who were praying for more of God in the Ottawa region, then revival broke just like at Azuza Street. By May of 1911, they built a small white, frame church. It became the first building of the future Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
Eyewitnesses at the prayer meeting reported that the fire department was called because some saw flames shooting out from the roof. To the firemen’s surprise, there were people still inside. They asked where the fire was coming from, the people said that it came from the Holy Spirit, so the seven firemen believed and gave their hearts to Jesus.
