Where we're at. What we're doing. Where we're going.

God has called us to build a life-giving church in Nanaimo with an emphasis of relating to the next generation. No matter your age, you can be part of shaping the future church of Nanaimo by inviting and investing.

Good things are happening at BeLoved! Revival is here as we surrender to God and allow His Spirit to change us from the inside out. Because of this, we are seeing the power of God move in and through our church, which then spills out into our city, nation, and world.

Our Sunday services are presently held in the evenings due to availability of space in Nanaimo. The plan is to move into a morning service as soon as we can.

We have never been more excited about the future! We love Nanaimo and the church God is building! Everyone is invited to jump into the adventure with us.

Love,
Pastors Chris and Angela

FOR THE ONE

You may notice our team t-shirts that have the number 99 on the back. This comes from Jesus' parable of the lost sheep where the Shepherd leaves the 99 to search for the one lost sheep. The add-on to the story is we are the 99 ready to receive the one. God's Kingdom is accessible to all, even those who have strayed away.

As part of the 99, we are doing whatever we can to reach the 1% of the population of Nanaimo. That's 1100 for Jesus. We serve a God is who is bigger than we can imagine, ask, or even think. Jesus is for everyone!

#HERETOSTAY

BeLoved City Church is here to stay. We are committed to playing our part in contributing to the needs of our City of Nanaimo by investing into a permanent facility. 

All around us we see people experiencing isolation, polarization, and disconnect. Having our own facility is important in building community for the generations to come, and is a witness to the goodness of God. We vision a place to call home where people are equipped to serve our community. We want to be intentional in how we create environments for people to experience Jesus and His church. 

Our starting goal is to raise $100,000 by May 2024. We know that as we begin to sow in faith, God will provide and lead us towards opportunites for a permanent space to facilitate the work of the good news of Jesus in our community. 

Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle ruined cities. Isaiah 54:2-3 NLT
