Get to know PineView

We Are A Multi-Cultural
Multi-Generational Church
Where Everyone is Welcome!

One goal of PineView is to create a community. We accomplish this by helping people connect and establish strong relationships with fellow believers through Home Fellowship Groups, social events, and service together. Whether you’re single or married, male or female, in your late 20’s or 30’s feel free to come and see what PineView is all about. PineView is for anyone committed to serving the Lord by encouraging, growing, and serving.

Wondering about God, Jesus, or the Bible? We have personalized small group studies that provide an opportunity to explore faith in a safe and comfortable. In fact, no question is off-limits. Home Fellowship Groups allow you to experience a taste of what it’s like to be in community with other people on a similar journey.

Core Values

The mission of PineView Church is to Go Love: Live the Great Commission, Do the Great Command.

We are founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.

We believe in the great commission and are endeavouring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy, and compassion.

We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).

We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38.

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. Acts 2:4

We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11
