The Metropolitan Bible Church ("The Met", www.metbiblechurch.ca) has been a lighthouse for the gospel in Canada’s capital region since 1931. Our mission is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ, together engaging people with the gospel, establishing believers in the gospel and equipping servants of the gospel, in our nation’s capital and the nations of the world. The Met was established 90 years ago in the midst of the Great Depression by a group of godly visionaries. The first service was held on the second floor of a building in the heart of Ottawa where a missionary delivered the first message. In a very short period the Metropolitan Tabernacle was built in downtown Ottawa. Since its inception the commitment to being a regionally focused, Bible teaching church has never wavered. The church has a strong history of expository Bible teaching. When The Met outgrew its building on Bank Street, it moved in 2010 to beautiful new facility at one of the region’s busiest intersections. The Met continues to have a significant gospel impact in the region, across Canada, and globally.
