OUR CHURCH

"BRINGING JESUS AND HIS CHURCH FRONT AND CENTRE OF EVERY DAY LIFE"

–––––––––––

Our model is to pioneer life giving Resurgent Church Communities around the city of Montreal, and off-island as the need arises.These communities will gather in rented buildings that can facilitate a great atmosphere for worship, a deep sense of connectedness, a vibrant kids ministry and convenient access to public transport and parking.

Ever since her beginnings, Montreal has known religion. Her roots are founded in it. Her architecture houses it. Her people speak it. Yet in the heart of this great city is a desire for more than religion. In this city only a few decades ago a ‘silent revolution’ occurred where people abandoned the church religion and moved the society towards her very secular posture, where Montreal stands right now. But secularization does not satisfy or awaken the spiritual heartbeat found within each and every individual alive on planet earth. Only a RESURGENCE of Jesus can do this. In a life-giving environment, hearts are reawakened and the church can become a place for gathering followers of Jesus, and those who have lost their way, back home together in true community. Alongside many other great churches in this city we will bring Jesus and His Church to front and centre of everyday life.

"This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn’t throw a brick without breaking a church window. Yet I was told you are going to build one more…"

- Mark Twain, during his first visit to Montreal, 1881.

We sense within the heart of this nation Canada, the province of Quebec and most specifically right now in Montreal, a new spiritual awakening and Resurgent Church is honoured to be a part of this resurgence.We have launched our first Resurgent Church Community to serve the Downtown Montreal area. This Community has experienced exciting growth with over 600 people traveling from all across the Island of Montreal, Laval, South Shore and further in from the West Island.So we are now expanding to serve another part of this greater Montreal. As of April 2nd. we will launch a new location on the West Island for Sunday mornings, and switch our Downtown location to Sunday nights

We are raising spiritual sons and daughters who will lead strong, relevant, life-giving local churches across Montreal, throughout Canada and into the nations of the world.

Our Beliefs

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, accurate, authoritative and applicable to our
every day lives.

We believe in one loving and eternal God, the Creator of all things, who exists in
three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross in our place, and rose again to
empower us for life.

We believe that in order to live holy and fruitful lives, we need to be baptized in
water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, which enables us to pray in the
Holy Spirit and use spiritual gifts as found in God’s Word.

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and
prosperous lives.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised, having
prepared a place in Heaven for every believer

Give the very best of you to people. Do it scared. Make the most of every moment. See the opportunity in every challenge. Live loud and proud. Get back up again when you get knocked down.

DEVOTION

A Loyalty To That Which Is Sacred
Build what God loves and he will build what you love. Your capacity is discovered in the stretch. The local church is built not on the gift and talent of a few but on the sacrifice of many. Serve a cause greater then yourself. Favour is not just about you. God loves you and wants to favour you but it's not just for you. It is to flow through you.

AUTHENTICITY

Living Your Life Without Pretence
Be the most real you that you can be. We serve the God of the clean slate and the second chance so shame has no place here. True community can only be found in your courage to be transparent and vulnerable. Take a journey towards wholeness and watch God use you on the way. Take off the masks, let down the walls... Let the real you stand up.
