The Gospel Coalition “In a world that is noisier than ever, with so many opinionated voices and dubious ideas vying for our attention, where do we find truth? Whose voice do we trust? 

The Gospel Coalition believes the answer to both questions is Jesus Christ, and we exist to help people navigate the dizzying, deafening noise by hearing more clearly his voice, “the words of eternal life” (John 6:68) that are the only source of ballast and whose death provides the only source of true transformation in our unsteady, sin-sick world. 

Through multimedia content, events, books, and international outreach, we seek to communicate both the costly call (Matt. 16:24) and the comforting consolation of Christ (Matt. 11:29-30), whose gospel presents both a countercultural challenge and an audacious invitation to any who would hear it.”

Desiring God- "Most people in the world have no experience of deep and abiding joy.

Even though it is something we all desperately long for, the assurance that true happiness can be known — fully and forever — is a hope that billions of people live every day without. This is a tragedy.

Desiring God is on a mission to change that.

We aim to help people everywhere embrace a profound truth that changes everything about life and eternity:

You were created for something greater than yourself. You were formed for something awesome and magnificent.

You were made to know glory — God’s glory. And the deepest longings of the human heart can be fully satisfied by pursuing that glory. In fact, God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him."

Menonite/Brethren in Christ

 

The Meeting House is part of a family of churches called the Be in Christ Church of Canada which in turn is part of a wider, international family of Brethren in Christ or BIC Churches. The BIC began in the late 18th century in Pennsylvania, when a group of Mennonites became dissatisfied with the lack of spiritual passion in the church and so ventured off in a new direction. The BIC has been influenced by key elements of a number of spiritual movements, including the Pietist focus on heart-felt devotion to Jesus, the Wesleyan pursuit of personal holiness, and the Anabaptist emphasis on simplicity, peace-making, and living out the teachings of Jesus in everyday life.
