Our Story

Gracepoint is a community of people who love God and want to live out our faith in practical and meaningful ways.

We strive to Experience God and Engage our World Together. What does that mean you ask? Well, it means this: we want to know God more, letting His character and love for us influence and change our lives.

We “experience God” by spending time with Him through scripture, prayer or gathering together for times of worship.

From those experiences, we also go and “engage our world.” We strive to share His character and love as we live our everyday lives in our neighbourhoods and communities.

Sometimes that means we help neighbours or care for someone “just because.” Some of us volunteer at food banks or thrift stores, coach sports or serve on civic committees to be influencers. Other times it means we go half-way across the world on an adventure because God has led us there or sponsor a refugee family to help them start a new life in Canada. Whatever God calls us to, that’s where we go as individuals and as a church.

For those who like history and want to know where we came from, here is another part of Gracepoint’s story. Our church is the beautiful union of two incredible groups of Jesus followers: Peace Arch Fellowship and Panorama Community Church. To be sure, we’ve had our share of bumps and bruises, ups and downs. We have been blessed with seasons of plenty and times of want. We have delighted together and we have cried together. We have been REFINED and continue to be refined. It is a treasured part of our story.

While we are now one congregation and have been for more than 10 years, our diversity of people enables Gracepoint to be a vibrant, growing group of believers.  Through it all, God faithfully leads us and provides. We are thankful to have people who are gifted in so many areas and it strengthens us we follow God together. Some of us are pray-ers, some doers; some prefer to lead, some prefer to come along side, many are generous with time and resources and most importantly, we work at being light in our little corner of the world… every day.
