Catch The Fire Scarborough
A Thriving Community Focused Church
Catch The Fire Scarborough is a thriving, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, community-focused church planted in Toronto East. We are fruit of the glorious Outpouring of the Holy Spirit that began here in Toronto in January 1994. As with all Catch The Fire churches, we specialize in ministering the revelation of God as a Loving Father, whom we know through Jesus Christ.
Our vision is to walk in God’s love and give it away, until the whole earth is filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord.
At Catch The Fire Scarborough, we expect signs and wonders to following the preaching of the Word. We place a high value on discipleship training in order to equip the saints to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit, while being rooted and grounded in the truth of the Scriptures and the Father’s love.
Our core values are the underlying principles that guide us in making decisions, determining priorities, setting goals, allocating resources and carrying out programs:
• We value hearing God’s Voice
• We value knowing God as Father
• We value healing life’s hurts in a safe environment
• We value empowering the saints to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit
• We value multiplication of leaders to advance His Kingdom locally and worldwide
