ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Hope Church Toronto West is a diverse, urban church plant located on the west end of Toronto, Ontario. We exist to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt 28:19-20) in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matt 22:37-39). Upon the foundation of Jesus Christ (1 Cor 3:11), we hold to 4 New Testament Pillars: Proclaiming the authority of God’s word without apology (2 Tim 4:2), lifting high the name of Jesus through worship (John 4:24), believing firmly in the power of prayer (Eph 6:18) and sharing the good news of Jesus with boldness (Eph 6:19-20).

Planted in 2013 out of Hope Bible Church Oakville, Hope Church Toronto West began with the fervent, desperate prayer of just a dozen individuals and has grown into a vibrant, international church of over 400 in weekly attendance. Hope Church Toronto West desires for the gospel of Jesus Christ to reach the city of Toronto, through prayer-saturated gospel proclamation and mercy-filled deed ministry.
