About Us

Word of Life Church was birthed from prayer meetings that were held in the Pastors home in 1995. In June of 1997 we leased the building at 22 Talbot St. W., Blenheim, a store front building located on the main street of town, and began to prepare for the harvest of souls that the Lord had promised to bring in. September 1997 brought our first service and in May of 2000 we purchased the building and completed major renovations expanding the sanctuary and upgrading for wheelchair accessibility.

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible in its entirety is the inspired Word of God and the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20, 21)

We believe in One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that in Jesus Christ “dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.” (Colossians 2:9; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 10:30; John 14:26, John 15:26; Matt. 28:19)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection. His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory. (I Timothy 3:16; Acts 1:11; Romans 8:34)

We believe in complete salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and obedience to the gospel by repentance of sins and baptism by immersion in water. (Ephesians 2:8; Acts 2:38, Acts 8:35-39)

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit giveth utterance, and in the manifestation of the Holy Spirit operative in the church of Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38, 39, Acts 9:6; I Corinthians 12:4-11)

We believe in the observance of the Lord’s Supper as a memorial of His broken body and the New Testament in His blood. (I Corinthians 11:24, 25)

We believe that at the return of Jesus Christ “the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17)

We believe in the final eternal judgment at which time the condemned will be cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11-15)

We believe that marriage constitutes a bond of life-time commitment between one man and one woman and that it is the only legitimate, honourable and holy estate instituted by God. It was ordained of God as the foundation and bond of family life for the mutual help and comfort of husband and wife, and for the welfare of the state. (Genesis 2:22(b) – 25; Proverbs 18:22; Hebrews 13:4; I Corinthians 7:10 & 11; I Corinthians 6:9 & 10; Romans 1:24 – 32)
