A Consecrated Year

A Consecrated Year:
The prophetic word that God has given us for the life of the church in 2024 is consecrated. Pastor Brenda takes the first Sunday of 2024 to review what that word consecrated means and invite us to ask the Spirit what he might want to invite us to personally consecrate to him this year.

Our mission is to "live the way of Jesus for the renewal of Niagara" but what does the word "renewal" really mean? What do we mean when we say that word? The word renewal comes with a lot of excitement for some, a lot of fear for others and big shrug of the shoulders for a few. Many people have a preconceived idea of what they think renewal means, so we want to take a few weeks to clarify what we mean by that word and what we are calling you into this year.

Dawn—The Darkness Cannot Prevail

Dawn —The Darkness Cannot Prevail

How do you feel about the state of the world right now? It can be depressing to look around us because it seems as though things are just getting worse, getting darker. The story of the coming of Jesus is a story of the victory of God over the best efforts of the kingdom of darkness to overthrow the rule of God on the earth. The gospel of Matthew begins with a genealogy that may seem boring and irrelevant on the surface, but is pregnant with meaning about the purposes and power of God for us even today. Through this genealogy, Matthew is reminding us of the victory of God through every generation and that God is still overcoming the darkness.

CONSECRATED PT 4 - Take Off Your Sandals

Consecrated PT 4-Take Off Your Sandals
As Joshua is on the doorstep of conquest and victory he is confronted by the Commander of the armies of the Lord. In this interaction, Joshua might be expecting to get some battle strategies for the next mission, but instead, when he asks the angel what he is to do, he is told to take off his sandals because he was standing on holy ground. In taking off his sandals, Joshua was being invited to surrender his power, dignity and ownership, and God is still in the business of asking if we would be willing to surrender these things in our own life.

There is a word found repeatedly in scripture that God is deeply passionate about. It is the word we have heard the Holy Spirit calling our whole church to in 2024. It is consecration. But what does that word mean and why is it important to God?


Three things marked Jesus’ life: the presence of God, formation into the image of God and a life of responsive mission. Our vision is to see the invasion of God’s kingdom on the earth as it is in heaven through us. To do that, we must live the way of Jesus for the renewal of Niagara by becoming people of presence, formation and mission. In order to be people of presence, formation and mission we need to order our lives around scripture, spiritual practices and dependence on the Holy Spirit’s gifts and power. These were the training tools of Jesus and they are the things that we need today so that we can become people of presence, formation and mission.


Our vision is to see the people of God live the prayer of Jesus “may your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We long to see our cities filled with men and women who’s lives have become living cathedrals of God’s kingdom presence and power. We long to see the church realize again that we are the place where heaven touches earth, our lives are meant to be the place through which heaven invades the earth. The problem is often that we are building our lives with the wrong blueprints, not the blueprints of the kingdom to build cathedrals of God’s presence, but the blueprints of the world, the flesh and the devil to build castles and fortresses.
