Who are we?
We are a group of about 75 Christians who meet at Lansing Gospel Hall in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The church members come from all nationalities and walks of life … company directors, engineers, nurses, teachers, housewives, and students. Despite our differences we have all believed and accepted the truths found in the Bible. We have a faith and a relationship with God through Jesus Christ that works practically in daily life. Using only the Bible as their guide, a group of volunteer, married, experienced Christians called elders, lead and direct the church, but many others are involved in the day-to-day activities of our service for God.
What do we believe?
We are convinced that the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and is the final authority for Christian faith and life. Therefore, from the Bible, we believe:
That there is but one true and living God who exists in the past, the present, and forever throughout eternity in the Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
That Jesus Christ, the only begotten eternal Son of God, is given to mankind as the only way of salvation. In Him perfect humanity and deity is found in one person. He is the mediator between God and man. He was crucified on the cross for the sins of all mankind and His blood was shed to fulfil the requirements of God’s righteousness. He rose again bodily from the dead, and ascended to Heaven. In the last day, Christ will return personally to earth as He has promised, to judge the living and the dead.
That humanity was created in the image of God. Since the first man Adam sinned against God, all humanity has come short of the glory of God, were flawed from birth, and cannot, by their own effort, attain righteousness in the presence of God. Salvation of humankind depends solely on the finished work of Christ who once and for all, poured out His blood on the cross as payment for the sins of humankind. Those who confess and repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour shall be saved.
