Everyone needs to be connected.
Push yourself and then let your squad push you further.
Looking to Jesus, he's the centre of our lives. Jesus at the centre.
Unity. We come together, we can worship and learn together.

When we Meet

1st Service

2nd Service

Worship

You are what you worship. You worship that which you behold. You behold that which you love. At GT, our Sunday worship gatherings are centred around beholding Jesus and learning to fall more in love with God. We worship God not for what we get out of it, but simply for who He is. However, in doing this, we begin to discover the very thing we were created for, to be worshipping image bearers of God.

We do this Sunday mornings through the modes of music and song, the preaching of the Scriptures, prayer, and the Sacraments of the church (Baptism and Communion). Our worship music is expressionate (Charismatic) as well as reflective (Contemplative).

Word

We at GT believe in the absolute authority of the Scriptures and hold them as the standard from which we derive ultimate truth and meaning from. Our preaching is geared towards equipping the Church (body of believers) in what it means to live out their faith in their ordinary, everyday lives. We desire to go deep in our study of the Scriptures and allow it to both “Confront Us”, as well as “Comfort Us”. Our teachings from the Scripture help us better understand what it means to truly follow the Way of Jesus in our cultural moment.

PRAYER

We at GT believe in the power of prayer. We have an incredible prayer team that count it a privilege to be able to spend time with people praying at the end of our services for whatever situation one may be facing. We believe that God, through the Holy Spirit, can do so much to help set free and bring healing to the lives of His people, when we pray together. We at GT intentionally create these spaces in our Sunday services for prayer to be practiced as well as received.

At Glad Tidings, we are impacting the world for Christ
through partnering with Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC) Global Workers

"For Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.
But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him?
And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him?
And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?"

​Romans 10:8-18 (NTL)

Note from the pastor

Hi there, thanks for checking out LIFT Kids and the family life ministry here at GTBurlington. "Leading and Inspiring Families Together" aka LIFT. We know that parents have the most potential spiritual influence in the lives of their children and because of this, we want to come alongside parents to support and resource them. LIFT is a Family Life Ministry for children 0 - Grade 5. If we haven't met we can't wait to see you and your family out at GT!
