The beautiful city of Kingston is situated in Eastern Ontario, located where the waters of Lake Ontario and the Cataraqui River join to form the St. Lawrence River. This area is blessed with many miles of walking trails, parks, marinas, and tourist attractions. Kingston city’s population is growing; presently it numbers approximately 135,000 persons. A building boom is taking place to provide homes and apartments for this influx. The average home price, as of September 2022, is approximately $570,000 while the average rent is approximately $1,600 for a one bedroom and $2,500 for a three-bedroom unit. A smaller city, Kingston has many of the amenities of cities such as Toronto or Ottawa, but with less of their inconveniences. Gridlock is rare, and the absence of major industries results in minimal pollution. Rich in history, but contemporary, Kingston is a pleasant place to live.

Spirit empowered, Biblical Living

Learning to live in the Spirit and from a Biblical world view is critical for the believer. We want to equip and encourage one another to develop those habits which create the context for our lives to be empowered and filled with the Holy Spirit. Together we want to grow in our biblical knowledge and understanding so it is the basis of our life practices.

Whole Life Worship

Breaking past the confines of exclusive Sunday morning worship to living a life of faith and obedience in which our every word, thought, and action becomes a praise offering to God so He alone is glorified.

Kingdom Directed Prayer

Developing a heart’s cry for God’s presence and Kingdom to be more fully realized. It is birthed out of a passion to know God, see His face and experience His glory.

Transformational Community (where lives are changed)

Journeying with each other in love and grace, we try to challenge and inspire each person to discover who they are in Christ and the specific purpose He has for them. We want to be a safe place for people to find acceptance and support as they move along in their journey.

Godly Servant Leadership

Identifying and raising up godly, servant leaders is critical to us becoming like Jesus and having a Kingdom impact. These individuals are voluntary servants, who commit themselves to God’s purpose. They, out of love, use the gifts that are entrusted to them to serve others. They serve, in what they say and do, to help others become servant leaders and Christ followers.
