Word and Spirit
What is behind the name?
“… This is the word of the LORD… ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” (Zechariah 4:6)
Zechariah 4:6 was used as the text for the message of the inaugural worship service of the Grace Canadian Reformed Church of Brampton on January 15, 1956. The members of the church were asked to build the house of the LORD in Brampton. The church was to be a bright shining lamp fueled by the Word (Bible) and the Spirit of the LORD. That humble beginning is the inspiration for the Word and Spirit Ministries. It is still our calling more than 50 years later to ensure that the people of Brampton and the surrounding metropolis may be touched by the Word and Spirit of the LORD.
