"All has been heard; the end of the matter is: Fear God
[revere and worship Him, knowing that He is] and keep His commandments, for
this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation, the
object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all
happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions
under the sun] and the whole [duty] for every man."
Ecclesiastes 12:13 (AMPC)
The Apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place.”
Today we welcome you to our website! It's a celebration and we're so glad you stopped by. Streams of Victory Church was planted and opened its doors on Sunday, March 3rd, 1996. Over 330 people gathered from the local community and other churches to help us launch this work here in Toronto.
Michael Diotte, Pastor
Today - we give thanks to God, Who has caused us to triumph in His Son, Jesus Christ. There hasn't been one situation where we've not seen the hand of God in our midst. God remains faithful!
During our adventurous journey of faith - we have had the privilege of being either directly or indirectly involved in several new church plants and a variety of other ministry activities.
In the few short years we have been established here in the GTA - we have assisted in establishing churches throughout Southern Ontario. As a result of a team of our people traveling to the Caribbean in 1999 - Streams saw the establishing of a new Victory Church in Kingston, Jamaica that now has grown to an additional 5 outreaches in several parishes.
In late 2000 and early 2001 we moved from our rented facilities at the OFL Building on Gervais Drive to a rented facility at 27 Mobile Drive and then in 2009 - on to the Canada Christian College facilities located at 50 Gervais Drive (Don Valley Parkway & Wynford Drive), Toronto. During the summer of 2018, when CCC sold their facilities and moved to Whitby, ON - Streams Church moved to it's current location at 40 Wynford Drive, Toronto, ON.
As well, 'Operation Victory Ministries' was launched during this time and we saw our borders stretched even further as we conducted major (Hope for Christmas & Picnic Extravaganza) events where lives were impacted and changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ in demonstration within the community. Truly we have seen what we can do together in God!
This all and more would not have been possible without the faithful team of men, women and children that God has brought into this local fellowship. Their dedication and enthusiastic pursuit of what He has set before us - has brought us this far. They have worked tirelessly and enthusiastically with forward thinking. Their living hope in Christ and wonderful hearts continue to shine brightly being a beacon of encouragement for many.
These tremendous people continue to make manifest the savour of Christ's knowledge, everywhere they go. Indeed we serve a great God and He has given my family and me a great people to serve.
If you currently do not have a church home - I welcome you home today. You will find the people here hungry for God, in pursuit of His presence, and determined to grow into all God has for them. God has great plans and a powerful future for the Streams family. If He has touched your heart to do so - we would be honoured to have you serve Him here - with us.
Thank you for visiting the Streams of Victory website today - be sure to join us for a church service soon. May you always enjoy God's richest and choicest blessings!
Michael Diotte, BTh, RP, DCC
