A worldwide family of churches…

Lamplight Church in Kitchener Waterloo is part of the Newfrontiers non-denominational family of churches. Instead of having rigid rules and hierarchies, it is a living network or family of churches that share biblical values and a passionate commitment to build the church according to New Testament principles.

Started by Terry Virgo in the UK in the 1960’s – Newfrontiers has now grown to over 800 churches in more than 60 nations.

As part of Newfrontiers, we believe that the most effective way to spread the good news of Jesus is by building strong local churches.

We desire local churches where everyone participates, the gifts of the Spirit are at work in every member, there is joy in caring one for one another, there is a desire to make a difference in our community and an urgency to reach those in need. We aim to achieve this by;

• restoring the church
• making disciples
• training leaders
• starting churches
• reaching the nations.

Newfrontiers in Canada…

As a new family of churches emerges in Canada, we have identified 4 values which we feel defines the family: 

  1. We are friends enjoying God’s Grace together.
  2. We are building churches on an Apostolic foundation that are empowered by the Word and the Spirit.
  3. We seek to advance the Kingdom and transform culture.
  4. We seek to reach the nations and make disciples.

Newfrontiers has the following churches in Canada:

Newfrontiers Churches in Canada receive apostolic input from Jeremy Simpkins’ apostolic team: Christ Central Churches – and Mike Betts apostolic team: Relational Mission.
