Our Heartbeat

Growing together with Jesus to make a difference in our city.

We don't pretend to be perfect, but we are in a relentless pursuit of the One who is. And with Jesus as our focus, we strive to reflect His love and grace in all things.

Our Story

Let me tell you about my heart for Lifecentre.

In 1981 six people planted a church around a singular idea; People need the life only Jesus can give. For Pastor’s Barry and Joyce, this meant planting a church which would be centred on the life of Jesus, or as it would come to be known as – Lifecentre. For the past thirty-seven years, I have watched them sacrifice, serve, and give the fullness of their hearts so people could experience the love of Jesus, which still…never fails.

Today we have planted, launched, and revitalized as many churches as there were people dreaming about what Lifecentre could be in 1981. Together we are still dreaming about making a Jesus-sized difference in each life, what it could look like to connect more people during the week as on Sundays, and what Lifecentre could look like downtown or in unique environments.

Our story is a little different than other churches. In 2007 when my father and I transitioned senior leadership, we said to our church, “You don’t have to choose which one of us you like more, you get us both.” In the history of our church, we will only ever have one set of Founding Pastors. As a church, it is our privilege to honour Pastor’s Barry and Joyce as forever ministers at Lifecentre. After all, it is their love and collective leadership which gifts us the freedom to continue dreaming about our bright future as a church.

When we look to that future, we still believe in that original singular idea; People still need the life only Jesus can give. So let’s continue growing people with Jesus, to make a difference in our city. 

And let’s keep doing it…together.

Our Beliefs

It All Starts and Ends with Jesus

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.

An 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.

A 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.
