Our mission is to represent Jesus Christ as the way to a loving relationship with God as we help each other and walk with Him.
A church for all people, with enough love to go around.
The first Pentecostal service was held on May 8, 1960 in the local recreation centre, and was attended by five men, three of whom were Ralph Freake, Melvin Snow, and Douglas R. Parsons. Parsons, who had relocated to the community earlier that year, conducted the meeting. During the next couple of years, services were held in the Bechtel Engineering building, a temporary school, in the homes of the W. Linfields and Douglas R. Parsons, and in the C.E. McManus school.
We are affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Newfoundland and Labrador; their website can be found at www.paonl.ca

- We value a cooperative fellowship that enhances the church’s ability to fulfill its missional mandate, through servant leadership, a shared vision, positive communication, relevant ministry and strategic mobilization of its resources.
