Welcome

We are glad you took the time to stop by our website because we want to share with you a place where you can experience a genuine relationship with God. Welcome to Vancouver West; a place where God interacts with us as we live life together!

Filled with questions?

Tired of answers that don’t satisfy? It’s okay to look for truth because it really does exist and it can be known! Your search for truth is not unique to you. At Vancouver West you will discover an incredible community of people that have walked the very same road and found the truth that brings clarity to all questions. His name is Jesus.

What you will discover

We are an Apostolic church (modelling our message after the New Testament Church) and are affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International.

When you join us for Sunday worship services you will find the worship and preaching to be vibrant and applicable to your life.  If you are able to join us for one of our mid-week Life Groups you will discover that they provide a great opportunity to connect with other people while you study the practical teaching of the Bible.

On this Thanksgiving Weekend Pastor Ens spoke from Ephesians 1:16-20 & I Chronicles 16:34.

During the most pressing of circumstances is precisely the time to lift your voice in thanks to the Lord. When your days seem the darkest, in the worst of lifes situations, in your greatest storm that is when you must practice thankfulness and gratitude toward the Lord.

We live in a world of many problems: political, social and economic. Jesus told us these days were coming in Matthew 24:9-15. Many Christians around the world are facing persecution and suffering for their faith. The spirit of our world is against Christian perspectives and morality. If we arent careful we can adopt an angry spirit and become defensive. This can feel like a time where it is hard to be thankful and practice gratitude in our daily lives. Jesus said we are to be salt and light, this means when we are hated we love, when we are persecuted, we pray. 

In a generation where it seems people are looking for an occasion to be offended, we are called to be different. When Jesus came and saved you, He didnt save you to leave you as you are but to transform you into an example of God to the world we live in. The greatest testimony to this world is when we have the opportunity to be offended and instead we love the person who has hurt us. 

When we look throughout the whole Bible and we see Gods enduring faithfulness we can establish a principle in our lives and trust that God will never fail. No matter the circumstances, we can choose to lift our voice of thanksgiving. We can adopt an attitude of gratitude.

 Oh give thanks unto the Lord for he is good; his mercy endureth for ever.

The psalmist didnt start by giving thanks for the temporal things, but he started by giving thanks for the eternal things. We need to give God thanks for the simple and temporal things, yes, but even when times are hard we always have something to give thanks for. We can always give thanks for the character and the faithfulness of God. We can always praise Him for who He is. He is always good and His mercy endureth forever.

We need to learn to both to enter and exit trials with thanks. Our thanksgiving and praise to God are not dependent on Him answering our prayers and delivering us from our situations in the ways that we desire. These things should not be the conditions for our praise. In the middle of your storm, you can have a heart of thanksgiving.

Not only are we thankful for his goodness and his mercy, we are thankful for the hope that is to come. One day the trump of God will sound and the dead and Christ will rise and we will forever be with the Lord. What a reason to be thankful! This hope is the greatest hope we can have.

As Paul said, if we had hope only in this world we would be miserable, but we have a hope of eternal life with Him. For those that know the Lord and that have experience his mercy and His goodness, for those that know they were lost in sin but then Jesus found us and transformed our lives, we long for the day to be in His presence. Once we have tasted of His goodness we arent satisfied with just this life, but we want to know Him and live with Him! We have a hope!
