Runnymede Community Church - Bloor West Village Toronto Ontario Canada

Values

Purpose:

We exist to worship God, and to grow together into a mature relationship with Him and His family; to introduce people to Jesus, and demonstrate His love by serving others.

Vision:

To love God, be committed to one another and engage our community.
Community

Relationships are what it’s all about. We put a high value on encouraging interaction between the generations. The diversity of young and old, married and single, and various ethnic cultures makes our congregation very colourful and rich.

Freedom

Newcomers to our church immediately notice the informality of dress and style. People can participate in any service to the degree they desire. We try not to put expectations or judgments on anyone’s worship style.

Worship

Contemporary, upbeat music is our flavour. We have lots of music in every service, and great worship teams that get us moving. The children seem to enjoy it the most.

Spirit-filled

We believe church is supposed to be supernatural. We look to God’s Holy Spirit to be present in our times together and to empower us in everything we do, as individuals and as a congregation.

Prayer

The most important part of being a Christian is being in relationship with God! And the way that we best express that relationship is through prayer. We have a strong emphasis on prayer at Runnymede.
 

The Bible

We take the Bible seriously, and try to read it for all it’s worth! The Bible is God’s “love letter” to us. When we read and study it, we expect it to change our hearts and our actions.

Spiritual Life & Progress

God loves us just the way we are, but we’re nowhere near perfect! Through our teaching, worship, and study resources, we are aiming to become more like Jesus.

Outreach

We want to share the good things Jesus has given us! We try to bless the people around us by bringing the ministries of the church outside the walls of the building to our neighbours, friends and family.

Statement of Faith

We believe:

  • a. In the being and unity of God, the existence of three equal persons in the Godhead, and the Bible to be the divinely-inspired Word of God, a complete and infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • b. In the Deity of Christ and the all-sufficiency of His atonement, through His shed blood; His bodily resurrection, His ascension and present intercession, His personal and glorious return.
  • c. In the sinfulness of humanity, the necessity of new birth and salvation through personal faith alone in Christ.
  • d. In the person and work of the Holy Spirit in the regeneration and guidance of the believer and the administration of the work of the Church.
  • e. In the resurrection of the dead, the judgment and punishment of the wicked, the blessedness of the righteous, both everlasting.
  • f. That this Church is a local expression of the company of all believers, voluntarily associated and meeting regularly here for mutual edification, the observance of the ordinances, the ministry of the Word and the propagation of the gospel.
  • g. That the ordinances of the Church are:
    • i. Baptism by immersion of believers in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    • ii. The Lord’s Supper.
