Our story

LIFECENTRE IS A STORY ABOUT GOD USING PEOPLE

In 1981 through three couples, and one question, “Does God want us to start a new work in the city?” From this question Lifecentre was birthed. Its foundation would be building on 1 Corinthians 13:8 that ‘Love Never Fails’. Since that time, this vision has remained the same as Lifecentre has grown to three physical locations in the Nation’s Capital.

Today, our grander vision is to plant multiple Campuses that will reach the 89% of our city that lives outside a growing relationship with Jesus.

We are a church passionate about Growing People With Jesus and Others. Each Sunday we come expecting God to move. We invest in all generations, love engaged worship, equip through effective training, and aim to live our lives on mission serving our city and beyond.

Our story is thirty plus years of God’s faithfulness.

Welcome to our story of seeing God redeem the amazing city of Ottawa.  We can’t wait to see what chapter your story helps us write, together.  Through the use of teaching, worship, and creative elements we aim to present the message of Jesus, the Gospel, through engaged worship and growth-guided teaching.

Are you ready to grow?
 Then let’s go!

Our Beliefs

A BLOOD STAINED CROSS

We Believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His death and resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His future return to this earth in power and glory.

We Believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

We Believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

EMPTY TOMB

We Believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost; one to everlasting life, and the other to everlasting judgment.

We Believe the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God.

POURED OUT HOLY SPIRIT

We Believe in the gifts of the Spirit, including prophecy and speaking in tongues.

We Believe in divine healing and miracles.

I'M READY TO SERVE

Lifecentre is a large church. It’s a place that, if you wanted to, you could slip in and slip out each weekend, and not be noticed. But we believe Jesus intended more for us as His church. We know what God is doing here is special, and we want you to have a part in that. We want you to connect with the people you go to church with and build relationships and community.

There are two ways you can serve at Lifecentre.

Serving Teams
From hosting guests, checking in kids, to our services there is simply no greater joy than to know you are used by God in a way that makes an eternal impact on others. Go ahead and jump onto a LifeTEAM and become a part of what God is doing through Lifecentre. It’s a decision you won’t regret.

LifeMISSIONS
From serving our city to sharing your life around the world, we were created to serve a lost and broken world.

WATER BAPTISM

At Lifecentre, we believe in Scriptural-based water baptism as an act of obedience in following Jesus. Matthew 28:19 says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

If you are interested in being water baptized at Lifecentre it is a two-step process.

  • Sign up for our next Water Baptism event at Lifecentre.
  • On the day of your baptism, come early to a Take the Plunge Party to receive your T-Shirt and instructions. Someone from our office will be available to answer any questions you have in regards to your baptism.

MINISTERIAL RECCOMMENDATIONS

Lifecentre provides credential recommendations with the aim towards helping leaders Grow People With Jesus and Others. We do so in a professional manner which remains faithful to sound biblical doctrine. We do not believe five-fold ministers are the pinnacle of spiritual maturity in the body of Christ. The goal of each follower of Christ is to become like Jesus.

Here is the full process
