Who We Are

Who We Are

Our Vision: here's who we want to be . . .

Our vision is a family of fully devoted children of God

who are fully mature in Jesus Christ

and fully alive with the Holy Spirit,

living as God intends and loving as God loves.

Our Mission: here's what we do . . .

We engage with the heart of God in holistic worship,

edify the people of God in biblical discipleship,

and embrace the mission of God in our community.

Our church's name communicates a lot about who we are and want to be.

First, we seek to serve a diverse group of communities commonly referred to as the "Oceanside" region, consisting of Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Nanoose Bay, Errington, Coombs, and surrounding areas.

Second, as a "Community Church," we feel called to reflect, represent, and reach out to these unique communities by bringing and binding people together who might not otherwise do so. We desire that all feel welcome and are accepted here. Young and old, rich and poor, men and women, single and married, working and retired--all play an equal and important role in the kingdom of God and in our church.

One of the reasons the early church was so effective was the way its message of forgiveness through Jesus and experience of the Spirit overcame gender, ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic barriers. As a church we hope to continue that message and the results that it brings. We are far from perfect, but we hope you will join us in bringing God's peace and beauty to our communities by witnessing to and furthering God's love, rule, and reign in the world.
