The Apostolic Church in Canada
Our Canadian story began in 1927 when Robert Caldwell of Gaspereau, Nova Scotia was impacted by the Holy Spirit while attending an Apostolic church in Philadelphia. Upon returning to Nova Scotia, as he told others of his experience, they too had a life changing encounter with The Spirit. As a result, the first Apostolic Church in Canada was established in a home with just nineteen members.
Revival fire characterized the expansion of churches into Quebec and Ontario. From the outset, the churches had the same vision to see the Gospel of Jesus spread throughout the world. Missionaries and their families were sent to Jamaica and Barbados, and then to Brazil. These nations now have their own movements and continue in strong fellowship with us as international partners. The ACC has strong relationships with other international partners in India and Haiti.
Multiple churches reflective of our diverse culture have been planted throughout Canada under the banner of The Apostolic Church in Canada.
