Church in Peace River

Alive on the west hill of Peace River, CLA is a church without walls that believes all things are possible through God. Whether you're a seeker, skeptic, or follower of Jesus, you're welcome to join our family-oriented church services which are designed to be enjoyed and not endured.

"To build a church that unchurched

people love to attend"

Our Vision

 

'"Go make disciples who make disciples."  We exist 

to introduce people to Jesus and

to help them follow Him."'

Our Mission

Our Values

God

  • We Value God:  His Word, and His Creation, His redemptive purpose in Christ for the world, and His presence through the Holy Spirit.

His People

  • We value people without Christ to whom we owe the compassion of Christ and an opportunity to receive the gospel and enter into Christian fellowship.

Commitment

  • We value individual believers and their personal commitment to Christ, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, discipleship, Christian family life, and fulfillment of the will of God.

His Church

  • We value local churches worldwide which are marked by sound doctrine, Pentecostal worship, every-member ministry, loving relationships, Holy Spirit-empowered evangelism, anointed proclamation and practical expression of Christian faith.

Family

  • We value a cooperative fellowship that enhances the church's ability to fulfill its mandate, through servant leadership, a shared vision, flexible structures, and strategic mobilization of its resources.

Location & Times

We aim to create a space that's relaxed and welcoming, where you can easily connect with others and encounter God.

What We Believe

WE BELIEVE the Holy Scriptures to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God.

WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in the Persons of the Holy Trinity.

WE BELIEVE in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His unquestionable deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father’s right hand, and His personal return at His second coming.

WE BELIEVE that justification is a judicial act of God on the believer’s behalf solely on the merits of Christ, and that regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

WE BELIEVE in holy living, the present-day reality of the baptism in the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord’s supernatural healing of the human body.

WE BELIEVE in Christ’s Lordship of the Church, the observance of the ordinances of Christian baptism by immersion for believers and the Lord’s Supper.

WE BELIEVE in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerate in the lake of fire.

Past & Present

Founded in 1955, CLA is a Christ-centred, Bible-based Pentecostal Church that loves God and people everywhere. We are members of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, which has over 1,100 churches across Canada.
