About Us

The world is looking for the authentic gospel.
— Sergei Makarenko

What We're All About

Our congregation is full of love, joy and eager anticipation for what the Lord is doing. Worship for us is an exuberant celebration of His goodness and everyone (kids included!) is invited to sit, stand, flag or dance before the Lord. We are excited as we get to see His Kingdom come to earth daily; through signs, wonders, miracles and lives being transformed. 

We believe the world is looking for something that is real and genuine; the authentic gospel. Jesus came to earth to serve and give Himself for all. He showed pure and sincere love. We believe God is good and that He is alive and at work, moving powerfully in our lives each day to reveal His goodness.



We are passionately committed to walking in God's love and giving that love away until the whole earth is filled with the knowledge of the Glory of God.


To impact our community, our city, our nation and the world by welcoming and responding to God's Presence personally and corporately. To encourage, empower and release believers into the fullness of God's destiny for their lives.


We value knowing God as Father. We value hearing His voice. We see the life of Jesus as the ultimate template for our daily living. The power of the Holy Spirit enables us to walk in breakthrough from poverty, brokeness, ill health and oppression.


Our History

New Life Christian Centre was dedicated to the Glory of God in 1974. Deeply rooted in prayer, with prayer meetings for our city spanning decades. We are passionate worshipers and the Lord is birthing new songs in the midst of our devotion daily. We are centred around His Presence and are creating a revival culture to reach our nation for God. We live with an awareness that God is good and that He is love.


Where We're At

Our home is nestled in the slopes of North Vancouver. Rich in evergreens, misty mornings and outdoor activities, the Lynn Valley has a fresh and new feeling. There is space for parking and also regular bus routes (255 + 210 + 239) that access the area.
