Where we came from:
Gospel Centre began in the 1940s when a Sunday School was established with help from Northpointe Church (formerly Central Tabernacle). After the building they were meeting in burned down in 1948, the fledgling church met in an old warehouse that was moved to the corner of 148 Street and 100 Avenue in 1949. The first Sunday morning service was held in 1951, with Dale Carpenter serving as the first pastor. The church continued to grow, resulting in a new building being constructed in 1963. Through faithful ministry by several pastors, growth soon necessitated the building of the present structure in 1977.
Who we are:
Today, Gospel Centre is a thriving church that is intentionally multi-ethnic and multi-generational. People from over 40 birth nations have come together, forming a body of Christ from every age bracket, intent on living out the character of Christ.
Gospel Centre believes in connection. For that reason, we have chosen to affiliate ourselves with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, a fellowship of more than 1,100 churches across English- and French-speaking Canada. More than 235,000 people attend services across the nation. We help facilitate the vital work of more than 260 global workers in over 50 countries around the world who are spreading the good news of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and bringing hope and help to those in need.
Whether you are a member of our fellowship looking for resources or services, or whether you are a visitor who would like to learn more about our organization and ministry work in progress in Canada and beyond, we hope that you are able to find all the information you need.
