Our Pastors

Chris & Angela MacDonald

Chris and Angela have been married 20+ years. They have ministered together for over 15 years starting in Alberta, and most recent with Oasis City in Duncan. They moved to Nanaimo to pastor Beloved City Church in early 2019. They are passionate about seeing lives transformed through an encounter with Jesus. They invite you to join for a Sunday worship experience. It is their prayer you will be encouraged and inspired to a deeper relationship with Jesus. In their spare time they enjoy spending time with family and friends, and exploring beautiful Vancouver Island.


Thank you for stopping by to find out more about us. We are passionate about making a difference and seeing people from all walks of life and backgrounds discover Jesus. With Jesus we can find healing from our yesterday and hope for tomorrow! Life is a journey of taking the next step to knowing God, finding freedom, discovering purpose, and making a difference.

In July 2019 beLoved City Church launched in the heart of Nanaimo. We see a church that is full of life, joy and celebration. It's about fresh starts.

Ways to partner with us include prayer, finance, and join the team! We know we can't do it on our own. It takes a unified group of people working together to accomplish the vision and mission. Do you have a pioneering spirit and are looking for a church to grow with? That's us!

We are passionate about making Jesus famous! Together, we can see transformed lives, families, and an entire city. We believe it will be the adventure of a lifetime. And what better place to do it than Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, BC.

What We Believe

At Beloved City Church we believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (ESV)

The gospel is the good news that God became man in Jesus Christ. He died the death we should have died by taking our place. Three days later He rose from the dead, proving He is the Son of God. The gift of salvation is free to everyone who believes and becomes a follower of Jesus.

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved"

Acts 16:31 (ESV)

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved"

Romans 10:9 (ESV)

"By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast"

Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)

"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.  And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me"

Galatians 2:20 (ESV)
