Canada’s First Pentecostal Church


West Carleton Christian Assembly, now The Oasis has been experiencing a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit that is spreading up and down the Ottawa Valley.

People have come from hours away hungry to know God in the fullness of His Glory. In the last two years 1000’s have come through this small church in the middle of “no where” in the far west end of Ottawa (Canada’s Capital).  It’s not about a big church or a fancy building, it’s about God’s presence and His Glory poured out on Earth as it is in heaven.

It’s God’s presence that has brought so many healing, salvation, signs and wonders. Cancer disappears, limbs lengthen, deaf hear, chronic illnesses healed, depression leaves, and people experience God’s love in a way that they are never the same as the glory of God fills their life. There has been an unprecedented manifestation of GOD’S LOVE that brings healing inside and out. Not only does God’s love remove the cancer, but also trauma, extreme anguish and pain disappear.  Many non Christians and un-churched people who come, encounter the tangible love and presence of God and suddenly want to give their life to Him. To God be the glory!

Pastor’s of smaller to medium size churches on the outskirts of Ottawa and all the way up the Valley are agreeing together for the first time to lay down their local vision for the larger vision of God’s desire to pour out His presence, flood the Valley and beyond to the Nation.

We are in awe of a God who is alive and full of love and grace. We hope you can come and join us and experience this amazing outpouring of God’s Spirit.
