What We Believe

Core Beliefs

Avonhurst is a part of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada,
and as a result subscribes to the Fundamental and Essential Truths
put forth by the PAOC. Feel free to read it here.
We've summarized the main points for you below.


We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments,
is the inspired Word of God, fully complete and without error.
We believe that the Bible contains all that is necessary to lead people to a knowledge of salvation and to live a righteous life. We believe it
to be the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and Christian living.


We believe that Jesus is the divine Son of God, the only sacrifice
for our sin, and our guarantee of God’s never-changing love for us.
We believe that He died, rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God. We believe that one day He will return to the earth
to receive all those who have believed in Him.


We believe that people are eternal beings and will spend the rest of eternity after their life on earth either with God in eternal happiness (heaven) or without God in eternal sorrow (hell). We believe that, through faith in Jesus, we are granted an eternity with God in heaven.


We believe that God, the Father, still speaks to His children today through His Holy Spirit. We believe that the Holy Spirit will always agree with God’s Word, and teach us to live according to it.
We believe that the Holy Spirit gives us strength to share the love
of Jesus Christ with others and that all who are willing are able
to receive the anointing of the Holy Spirit.


We believe that the church is not a building or a denomination,
but rather the believers themselves who make up the church.
We believe that all Bible believing churches are part of God’s family and that we ought to share in ministry and fellowship with each other as the Spirit of God leads.
