OUR VISION FOR CANVAS

Canvas is a God Centered family that loves people well, sees who they are, awakens their dreams, and equips them to impact the world.

God's Vision for Ministry

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called tress of righteousness, the planting for the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

Isaiah 61:1-3

CANVAS CULTURE DISTINCTIVES

At Canvas we are diverse; a multi-cultural, multi-racial, and multi-generational family of believers who will relentlessly pursue and respond to the presence of God.

At Canvas we are a Spirit-filled church that seeks to bring healing and freedom to those broken by sin’s tyranny and equip and launch believers to carry our their God-given assignments.

At Canvas, we seek to be Authentic in everything we do. We desire to be people with genuine hearts, who are real and accessible. We focus on creating an atmosphere where worship is real, the presence of God is tangible, and each person feels valued.

At Canvas, we aim to set a Culture to reflect Heaven.  We long to see the culture of Heaven manifested in every thing we do. From worship to small groups, we honor God and celebrate His blessings.

At Canvas, we seek to be Kingdom-minded. We strive to create an atmosphere where God is welcome and hearts can be made whole. We are open to the movement of the Holy Spirit and desire to see Him reveal Himself on Earth as in Heaven.
