Our story starts in September of 1978, when a group of Christians in what had just become the city of Mississauga started looking for a pastor. In 1979, they called their first pastor and held their first worship service at the Mississauga Valley Community Centre. The congregation called itself "Divine Peace." Unfortunately, that congregation only lasted a few years and closed in 1985 because of financial concerns. However, the few people who remained held strong to the Word of God and continued to meet together, even without a pastor into the 90s.
Fast forward to 1999 and the group is blessed with a pastor. This new congregation calls itself Cross of Life. This time, things took off, and ever since then, God has been blessing us. We've been committed to presenting Jesus and his Word accurately, not leaving anything out or saying more than what the Bible says. We don't do that because it's easy, in fact, sometimes it's really difficult. But we believe that Jesus is alive(!), and that changes everything. While we definitely have been growing in numbers over the past couple decades, that's never really been the most important thing to us. We'd rather see each individual grow in knowing Jesus Christ and everything he has done for them. Because of that, we've made it our business as a congregation to LEARN, LIVE, and LEAD in very personal ways. We pray that you can become part of that culture and part of our story.
