Welcome to Langley Gospel Hall located in the community of Murrayville in the Township of Langley, B.C.!
We are a diverse group of Christians from many different cultures and backgrounds, who have been saved by God’s amazing grace. For more than 100 years, a local church has met in the Murrayville area. Our prayer is that we may serve God and this community for many years to come.
Some key principles that frame our foundation:
We are trying to model New Testament church practices and principles in how we meet and function—Acts 2:41-42.
We are Christ-centered. We love the Lord Jesus Christ and want Him to have the pre-eminence in everything we do. (Colossians 1:18).
We are gospel focused. Each of us has been saved from the penalty of our own sins and now wants others to discover Jesus Christ as their own Saviour. For this reason, we regularly preach the gospel of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 1:23).
We are independent and self-governed. This church is not affiliated with any denomination or parent organization, nor have we elevated any single church member into a position of leadership over the church. Instead, under the headship of Christ (Colossians 1:18), we look to the Bible to guide us, with a body of overseers/ elders providing servant/shepherd leadership to the church. (Titus 1:5).
We want to be a good neighbour. Regardless of whether you share our beliefs or not, we want to be friends to everyone and an asset in the community (Galatians 6:10). We also seek to reach out to the community with adult evangelism, a Sunday School ministry for children and ESL outreaches. Individually, we are born again Christians, endeavouring to live as followers of Jesus Christ. Collectively, we gather together very simply for worship, prayer, teaching and study of the Bible.
Although our individual testimonies might include a wide variety of details, we believe that anyone who is a born again believer, or Christian, will have these points in common:
* There was a specific time and place of salvation—it was not a gradual process
* There was a realization of sin and unworthiness before a Holy God, resulting in a repentant heart
* There was a moment when we realized that when Jesus Christ died on the cross, it was to pay the price for our sins, and we trusted His work on the cross for our salvation.
