a Family church in Revival
Catch The Fire Barrie is part of a family of churches and ministries worldwide that was birthed as a result of the incredible revival that began in Toronto in 1994.
Catch The Fire encompasses a growing network of churches, a college with International Schools of Ministry, a missions program and events running all over the world.
Our desire at Catch The Fire Barrie is to build a church family who loves God's presence, loves each other and reaches out in love to others in the community.

Encountering God's Transforming Presence
In Matthew 22:37-39, Jesus commands us to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
At Catch The Fire we believe we can accomplish this mandate through a three-way journey of encountering God, letting God transform our hearts, which then enables us to let God's love overflow from us to others.
The Upward Journey
We value the importance of having encounters with God, through worship, prayer, and reading the Word of God. We want to experience the reality of God in our everyday lives.
"The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." (John 14:21b)
The Inward Journey
We believe our encounter with God leads to transformation and healing of our body, soul and spirit. As we cooperate with God He does a deep work in our hearts causing us to become more like Him.
"And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." (2 Corinthians 3:18)
The Outward Journey
Jesus said that "out of our inner most beings would flow rivers of living water." (John 7:38)
As we encounter the reality of God and allow his love to transform us we are filled and empowered to overflow with His love to our community, releasing the Kingdom of God everywhere we go.
