Have you ever wondered about the history of the church before the 21st century? Have you ever heard of the Crusades or the Spanish Inquisition and wondered what they were all about? Promise Church will be hosting “The History of Christianity.” It will cover church history from Jesus’ ascension to the twentieth century. The class will be taught by Rev. Ron Dyer and is applicable to anyone wanting to study church history, Christian or not.
Every Sunday at 3:00PM beginning on August 15, and running until October 17.
Promise Church is bringing healing to a broken sense of community in Bradford. We are going to co-host a barbecue in your neighbourhood! We’ll provide the food and resources, you’ll provide the neighbours and the home.

3 And he told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow.4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them.5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil,6 but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away.7 Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them.8 Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.9 He who has ears, let him hear.”
18 “Hear then the parable of the sower:19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path.20 As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy,21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away.“22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.23 As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”
The Kingdom of God, is God’s vision of the world made right.
God is sharing the word of the Kingdom of God, and He is pointing out the thorns we have.
Cares of the world will choke out the Kingdom of God in you.
When the Kingdom of God is spoken about, the lies we tell ourselves about money choke out the growth of the Kingdom of God in us.
The Kingdom of God is larger than your needs being met.
The Kingdom of God is about becoming truly human, truly connected with God and other people.

Promise Groups are central to what we do at Promise Church. Promise Groups are core to what we do at Promise Church.
We all want our lives to be fulfilled, and we believe that living a life devoted to Jesus is the key to that goal. The experience in a Promise Group foreshadows the type of connectivity with others we were created for, while engaging with our larger purpose as part of the body of Christ. There are five things you can expect to happen in a Promise Group that will increase the quality of your week and your relationship with Jesus:
1) Meaningful discussion about a specific Biblical text
2) Closer, consistent friendships
3) Team members for Promise Grants
4) A place to build your ministry capacity
5) Strengthening your spiritual practice

Here at Promise Church, we believe that giving is an act of worship, as well as a demonstration of trust in what God is doing in His kingdom. As we give, we demonstrate three things: we demonstrate our trust and faith in God’s provision (giving back to God what He gives us), we emulate his generosity, and we demonstrate that we are not bound to our material possessions.
HOW TO GIVE:
As a church plant, Promise Church is parented by Willowdale Pentecostal Church. Because of this, they act as our financial mediator. In order to give to Promise Church, please fill out the form below and select “Promise Church” from the Fund drop down.
WHY WILLOWDALE PENTECOSTAL CHURCH?
As our major parenting church, Willowdale Pentecostal Church acts as our governing body and legal accountability. This gives us the freedom to shape our ministries, and then establish our individual governing board in line with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, and the vision of what God is calling us to do.
If you are having difficulty with (or do not see) the embedded giving form, please click the link below and you will be redirected to our main website’s giving page.
Worship is more than just music and singing on a Sunday morning. Worship is the very way we live. Everything we do becomes an act of worship when it honours God and builds his kingdom. In a corporate setting, music helps us worship together as a body; it encourages us to sing with each other and express our praise to Christ in a way that edifies the church and fosters a united community.
CHURCH SONG LIST:
Because of the necessity of corporate worship, and its purpose in building up our community, we have (and will be maintaining) a playlist that includes all the songs we sing, or are going to be singing, during our Sunday morning services. The purpose of this playlist is to encourage you, the church, to listen to these songs on your own, and to include them in your devotional time.
Songs at the top of the playlist will be reserved for newer songs that have either been recently introduced, or will be introduced in the near future
