Tenets of faith


The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (2 Timothy 3:16; 
1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 2:1).


Our God is one but manifested in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, neither being created but infinite and eternal, each being co-equal (Philippians 2:6). God the Father is greater than all, the source of the Word (logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; 16:28; 1:14). The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One begotten and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; 1:18; 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son (John 15:26).


Man is a created being made in the likeness and image of God. But through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one” (Romans 5:14; 3:23). Jesus Christ, the Son of God was manifested to undo the work of the devil and he gave his life and shed his blood to redeem and restore man back to God (1 John 3:8). Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law. It is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and the confession of him as Saviour and Lord, producing works acceptable to God (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:8-10).

History of Northland Faith Church

In September of 2008, Pastor Bev began Midweek Bible teachings on Wednesday evenings at Lochlin Community Centre. In November of the same year, Sunday services began. The first service had 10 people in attendance.

In April of 2009, the church was incorporated, with an appointed Board of Directors, as a non profit corporation with Corporation Canada under the name Northland Faith Church. In August the same year, the church received Charity status as a Non-profit charity with Revenue Canada. In December of 2009, Northland Faith Church relocated to 235 Highland Street Haliburton for worship services.

In July 2011, the congregation outgrew the space on Highland Street and began to hold Sunday services at the Community Room, on Hwy 118, north of Haliburton. They remained there until December of 2012, when the church leased units 10 and 11 at 50 York Street in Haliburton.

In 2014 Northland Faith Church moved to its current location:
13321 Hwy 118 West, Haliburton.


Reconciling a hurting world to a loving merciful God through His Word and through the work that Jesus did on the cross.


By declaring the good news of God’s word, people will know of God’s grace and learn to walk in Faith, trusting God to reign in life.

Church Leadership

Pastor Pat and Pastor Bev

My wife and I were both born and raised in Haliburton County. We met during high school and were married in 1975. Both our career paths lead us to the Durham area, where we lived and raised two children; Joel and Rachel. Our firstborn; Jason died at infancy.

It was during my career at General Motors in 1974, through the witness of Christian coworkers, that I received Jesus as Lord and Saviour, Pat made that same commitment a few months later. In 1981, my heart sensed a desire and call to go into ministry. I received from the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, a Lay Ministers license to preach. In 1984, I began correspondence studies with the Canadian Pentecostal Correspondence College and by 1992 I had earned my Ministerial Theological degree and subsequently a Ministers License with the PAOC.

In 2004, after retiring from a thirty-one year career at GM, I received ordination with “Association of Faith Churches and Ministries”. I had been licensed with them since 2000. I then served on staff at Faith Family Church for the next three years; we had been attending there since 1995.

In 2008, we decided to move back to the Highlands and start Northland Faith Church. I have authored 2 books, I currently volunteer and host a radio program at 100.9 Canoe FM, called “Word Nuggets” and I serve as Regional Director of AFCM for Ontario as well as the Canadian Board of Directors. I have also served as Chaplain for Legion Branch 129.
