We are a church seeking to shape a community where everyone can grow, belong, share in the story of Jesus' mission to the world, and make a difference in their neighbourhood. Poetically, we put it this way: Embraced by God; Embracing His World. Our Sunday's are about meeting up in our weekly event of worship and meeting in a variety groups through the week. We are part of a larger group of churches called the Christian & Missionary Alliance Denomination-a young, protestant, evangelical church group begun with a passion to be spiritually alive and vigorously active in the world.
Pacific Community Church began in 1991 in what use to be the Cloverdale's Car Museum. From the old museum, we moved into the Cloverdale Recreation Center, then Martha Currie Elementary, and finally here in our renovated Warehouse in 2001.
We don't tend to sit in the pew all that long. We believe the church exists for the sake of the world -- meaning that out of our gatherings whether on Sunday morning or in groups through the week, we are being sent into the world as agents of God's blessing in schools, neighbourhoods, workplaces, organizations and wherever he plants us. One of those expressions is the Cloverdale Community Kitchen providing thousands of meals a year, a Food Pantry providing groceries weekly, and numerous other efforts to serve the needs in our community. We are oriented by four key convictions:
- Everybody Growing in Christ
- Everybody Belonging to Christ's Community
- Everybody Sharing Christ's Story
- Everybody Loving Their Neighbour
