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

Over Thirty Years of God's Faithfulness

Our Past

In 1981 three couples, asked one question, “Does God want us to start a new church in the city?” From these six people, and this simple question Lifecentre was planted. Our heartbeat, based on 1 Corinthians 13:8 is to be a church where God’s ‘Love Never Fails’.

Our Present

We are a single church, which meets in multiple locations. Our heart remains the same. Whether it be with kids, students, or adults. In experiences, groups, bible school, or teams we are Growing Together With Jesus To Make a Difference In Our City.

Our Future

By 2023 we desire to see a movement of people, all generations in our city living with conviction about Jesus in our schools, workplaces, families, and friendships.

Specifically, we desire to:

  • • Plant a campus in downtown Ottawa.
  • • Pursue Spirit-led, merger opportunities with willing churches.
  • • Network with 3-5 churches in the world who share our approach.
  • • Bring Lifecentre into unique environments.
  • • Be a resource church which strengthens others churches in our city.
  • • Partner with organizations with shared values of making a difference for Jesus.
  • • Connect with as many people during the week as we do on Sunday.

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.
