Welcome to Beloved Church!  

Thank you for stopping by to find out more about us. We are a multi-generational, multi-cultural church, coming together to encounter God's presence, where personal revival begins. With Jesus we can live in the power of healing, truth, and joy! Walking in relationship with Him one step at a time. We have recently moved and re-branded from Harewood Community Church. Come join us as we discover and unpack the gifts God has delivered for His church in the City of Nanaimo.


Our mission is to multiply Jesus followers. Leaving no ear untouched by the good news of Jesus.

Our dream is to be the church that is city reaching, and community rooted. Maximizing our impact to transform our city with the good news of Jesus Christ though personal relationships.


The church is a home for everyone to be loved, belong and become all how God designed. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey to know Jesus, it is our prayer for you to find a home. We look forward to meeting you!

What We Believe

At Beloved City Church we believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

"For I delivered to you as of first

importance what I also received:

that Christ died for our sins in

accordance with the Scriptures, 

that he was buried, that he was

raised on the third day in

accordance with the Scriptures."

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (ESV)

The gospel is the good news that God became man in Jesus Christ. He died the death we should have died by taking our place. Three days later He rose from the dead, proving He is the Son of God. The gift of salvation is free to everyone who believes and becomes a follower of Jesus.

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" 

Acts 16:31 (ESV)

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" Romans 10:9 (ESV)

"By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast" 

Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)

"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.  And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me" 

Galatians 2:20 (ESV)

We are partnered with the Apostolic Churches of Pentecost of Canada. For a copy of our statement of faith, please email us at
