Our church was established in the community of Wainfleet over 100 years ago. In the early days we met in homes until a meeting house was built on the corner of Highway #3 and Perry Road where we still are today. We have grown over the years and have a wide ministry gathering people from across the southern and central Niagara Peninsula and eastern Haldimand regions. While our church has a rich history we continue to strive for fresh ways to enthusiastically share Jesus' love with our friends and neighbours. Our goal is to be the kind of church described in the Bible - a church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, genuine love, prayer, and compassion. We want everyone to experience the love of Jesus Christ for themselves.
The Brethren In Christ
Our church is also part of a wider network of churches called the Brethren In Christ (BIC for short) that exists in over 20 countries of the world. . “Brethren” (historic not gender related) refers to the value we place on connection and loving each other. Our theological roots lie in the Anabaptist, Pietist and Wesleyan Holiness traditions with the goodness of each of these "streams" shaping who we are today. We believe in peace, having a heartfelt relationship with Christ, and that the “normal” Christian life is one of ongoing growth through the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. What got started as a small group over 200 years ago has grown to a fellowship of churches across North America and in 20 countries around the world.
