Kanata is known as the Silicon Valley of the North; in the 1990s, due to the development of high technology, it attracted many high-tech practitioners, and many new immigrants of Chinese descent came to settle in Kanata. Some local Christians saw the need for Mandarin ministry and were willing to open up wasteland for evangelism in this new community.

In July 2002, with the help of the Western Kanata Wesleyan Church, the Kanata Wesleyan Church Mandarin Church was established, and in November, the Mandarin Ministry worship was officially started. The church family works together to spread the salvation of Jesus Christ in the Chinese community.

In July 2006, four years later, Mandarin Church with faith, with the mission of the Lord and the blessing and assistance of the Wesleyan Union, became independent from the Kanata Wesleyan Church and established the current Mandarin Wesleyan Church in Ottawa. Over the years, the number of members of the church has continued to increase. Until the middle of 2006, the number of members increased from 30 to 90, and a full-time preacher was hired.

In addition, by the grace of God, Mandarin Wesleyan Church has also received the assistance of Kanata Wesleyan to provide its synagogue as our meeting place free of charge, so that our new church can start our new ministry with God’s blessing from the very beginning. May God use us to become a base for expanding the kingdom of God in Greater Ottawa and the wider region, spreading the gospel, and completing the Lord Jesus’ Great Commission.

  • We are bestowed such vision: One of the Mandarin worship and disciple training center serving Greater Ottawa areas, a gospel preaching post, a mission church with glorifying God and expanding the Kingdom of God as our ultimate purposes.
  • We are entrusted this mission: Worshiping the true God, Proclaiming the Good News, Discipling the believers, Building the fellowship, Ministering to the community.

We believe in the only living God, full of holiness and love, eternal, omnipotent, wise and good, and he is the creator and sustainer of all things. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Trinity) are three persons with the same nature, power, and eternity. 

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, both the true God and the true man. He died on the cross and was buried, as an atonement for our sins, and to re-establish the right relationship with our Heavenly Father. The body of Christ rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and sat at the right hand of the Father, interceding for us until the end of the age to come and judge the world.

We believe in Christ to give ourselves once and forever, and through His suffering and death on the cross, we will pay the sin debt for the world. Otherwise, there is no salvation. This atonement is sufficient for everyone, and it is unconditionally effective for the salvation of these people, including the born mentally handicapped, the mentally handicapped after being saved, and children who have not yet reached the age to be responsible for their actions. However, for those who have reached the age to be responsible for their actions, only if he repents and confesses, and exercises faith in the Lord and Savior of his life, Jesus Christ, this salvation is effective.

We firmly believe that the books of the Old and New Testaments are the Bible. They are the absolutely infallible words of God inspired by God. There is no error in the original manuscript and it transcends all human authority. They are passed on to this world, and the doctrine is intact. We believe that they include everything needed for salvation; any way that is not contained in the Bible or is not proven by the Bible is not necessary to be believed or regarded as the way of salvation.

We believe in God’s call and require all people to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself”. This is the general outline of all laws contained in the Bible.

We firmly believe that the Christian church is the totality of all believers in Jesus Christ, and that Jesus Christ is the founder and sole head of the church. In order to preach the pure Word, the churches on earth properly preside over the sacraments according to the instructions of Christ and obey the great commandments of Christ. A local church is an entity formally formed by believers according to the principles of the gospel for the purpose of evangelism, edification, fellowship and worship. The Wesleyan Church is part of all believers.

We believe that the liturgy and the Lord’s Supper are church sacraments ordained by Christ. Water ceremony is a sacrament of the church, ordained by our lord and received by believers. With this ceremony, believers declare their faith in the Savior Jesus Christ. The Lord himself set up the sacrament to remember him until he comes again. This is also the seal of the new covenant between God and man. Anyone who believes in Jesus Christ can receive it.

Our faith in the assurance of the return of Jesus Christ inspires us to live a holy life and inspires our enthusiasm for universal missions.

We believe that all people will be resurrected from the dead-the righteous will be resurrected for eternal life, the unrighteous will be resurrected for eternal life. We believe that the Bible clearly teaches that there is life after death. The ultimate destiny of each person is determined by God’s grace, mercy, and personal response. For those who choose the salvation provided by God through Jesus Christ, the heaven with eternal glory and the blessing of Christ’s presence is their final residence; but for those who despise this vast salvation, there is endless misery and a hell separated from God. It is their final residence.
