Beliefs



We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man; he was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried, and the third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father; from thence he shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spake by the prophets. In one holy catholic and apostolic Church; we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen

Give a Christmas Gift to a Child with Autism

Christmas is a special time of the year when, together with our families and church community, we remember the greatest gift that has been given to us by God -- His Son Jesus. Christ came into the world to bring us salvation from sin and death. During this season of joy, let us remember those who perhaps do not have a life as easy as the one that we enjoy.

Natasha and I started the ministry to persons with special needs after we found out in 2009 that our own son Roman had Autism and developmental disability. No parent wants to hear such news from doctors. Though shocked at first, we asked God to help us care for Roman. He was with us every single day of the last 10 years as we did our best to love Roman and take care of his needs. We know that many of you supported us in prayer, for which we are grateful.

We love Roman dearly. Through Roman, God opened our hearts for ministry to persons with disabilities. In 2013, we came up with the project that we named "Roman's Touch&quo…

Toronto Church Plant Update

We are excited about the vibrant life of our new church plant for the Russian speakers in Toronto, Canada. On July 1st, 2019, we took families from our church to the Niagara Falls area, where we had a picnic. The weather turned out to be great, so it was quite delightful to enjoy a full day of fellowship! It was a special treat for families with children with Autism that come to our church. They do not get out much, so all adults and children enjoyed the outing.

During summer 2019, I am preaching a series of sermons on “What Does It Mean to be a Christian, Practically Speaking.” Because we have friends coming to our services that need nourishing in the basics of Christian faith, I am covering the fundamentals of the Christian life. So far, I preached on the importance of conversion, water baptism, prayer, the study of the Word, and participation in church life. The two remaining topics that I hope to cover in August 2019 are: the importance of daily living with Christ and sharing one…

Our Lives Are Not About Getting Things

Shopping is a daily part of our lives. Many of us just spent fair amounts of money purchasing Christmas gifts for our loved ones and friends. Some of us tend to overspend when we enter big supermarkets if we do not have a list or if we cannot distinguish between our needs and wants. A while ago, we learned one useful thing that helped us with our shopping. We hope that this tip will be helpful to you.

You roll your cart through the store and keep putting items that you think you need into it. Then you go to check out. Before you start placing the things you bought on the check out belt, take out of your cart one item that you need the least. Leave it in the store. If you do this every time you shop, you will be amazed at how much money you will save by the end of the year. Once you have taken that item off the cart, just think of one of the parts of the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-contr…
