Church Overview

Who We Are

Here's the deal, The Neighbourhood Church cares about one thing more than anything else: Jesus Christ. The Neighbourhood Church is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that same freedom. We are a part of a larger assembly called the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC). For more info on the PAOC, check them out here: https://paoc.org/family/what-we-believe

Where We Come From

The Neighbourhood Church was planted in Saskatoon in 1982. Back then, it served the city of Saskatoon on 3rd and Louise through a bus & food ministry which eventually fed up to 250-300 children and parents a hot breakfast at the church. Shortly after 1986, the church joined the PAOC. Through different leadership and transition periods, the church moved from 3rd and Louise to a school in Silverwood Heights, to a school in Lawson Heights, until we eventually moved into our current building located at 233 Pinehouse Drive (previously a pool hall and restaurant) in Lawson Heights, Saskatoon.

Where We're Headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, The Neighbourhood Church is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion, belonging, life transformation, and seeing the gospel go out into Saskatoon and beyond remain at the centre of who we are as followers of Christ.

Our Beliefs

  1. We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the divinely inbreathed, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is one God, externally existent in the Person of the Holy Trinity.
  3. We believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His unqualified deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father’s right hand, and His personal coming again at the second advent.
  4. We believe that justification is a judicial act of God on the believer’s behalf solely on the merits of Christ and that spiritual renewal by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
  5. We believe in holy living and the present-day reality of the baptism of the Holy Spirit (according to Acts 2:4), the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the Lord’s supernatural healing of the human body.
  6. We believe in Christ’s Leadership of the church, observance of the ordinances of Christian baptism by immerse for believers, and the Lord’s Supper.
  7. We believe in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the non-repentant in the lake of fire.
