Saturate Church officially launched in early 2021 in the city of Mississauga. Saturate has planted in partnership with FEB Central.
Saturate is a non-traditional style of the local church that is comprised of an organized network of household-based Missional Communities throughout the region. Each Missional Community is made up of multiple households who intentionally do life together. We aim to live like extended spiritual families who disciple one another in the everyday stuff of life, and who serve our local neighbourhoods together.
We desire to integrate the truths of Scripture into all aspects of life. This means we engage in life-on-life mentorship in the everyday stuff within households, Missional Communities, and smaller Discipleship Groups.
We seek to share the gospel cross-culturally with unreached peoples in our neighbourhoods. This means we meet for worldview training, build relationships with our neighbours, engage in conversational and street evangelism, and organize outreach events.
We place value on the salvation of the lost and Biblical justice above our comfort and safety. This means we call people to take risks in the public proclamation of the gospel, in advocating for cultural transformation, and in supporting people who face persecution.
We desire to demonstrate tangible care for one another and unreached people. This means we open our homes and make room in our schedules to practically support our church members and to invite non-Christians into our day-to-day lives.
We shape all ministry by the authority of the truth of Scripture, the model of the self-giving love of Jesus, and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. This means we study the Scriptures individually and in community, hold each other accountable to the example of Christ, and pray regularly and earnestly for the manifestation of the Kingdom.
In 2019, Greg and Caitlin Armstrong sensed God directing them to start taking steps to plant a new church in Mississauga, ON. They felt the Holy Spirit impressing upon their hearts a burden to share the message of Jesus with people of all different walks of life and religious backgrounds, especially with those who would not normally feel comfortable attending a formal church service or program. They realized to do that really takes showing hospitality and cultivating authentic community that is integrated into the day to day rhythms of life. That meant starting with opening their own home to their neighbours.
Greg and Caitlin have been married for 13 years and have been blessed with a daughter named Eliana. They have served in youth and young adults ministries for the past 7 years and both graduated from Tyndale University. They have a passion to give consistent Biblical answers to tough questions we face in our culture, and to equip the Body of Christ with firm theological foundations for all aspects of life. Their desire is to spark a movement to mobilize the Body of Christ to open their homes to their neighbours and to step out to share the good news of King Jesus in our communities.
