Our Vision

Our church  is about unveiling Jesus and His finished work. Our church is where God’s principles of prayer, studying the Word, praise and worship, are put into action and spoken in truth.  A church where we grow deep roots to fulfill God’s calling of becoming disciples.


Maranatha Christian Assembly

10 Days Road, Wickham, New Brunswick  E5T 3Z2

Services:       Sunday at 10 am     &     Wednesday at 7 pm.   





We believe the Word of God to be the inspired standard of truth for all people. The Holy Spirit is welcome in our meetings, with signs following.

No matter the season of life or your circumstances, you are welcome to be part of our community. You’ll see your life touched, changed, and transformed from the inside out when you encounter the Lord’s grace.


The Church and Jesus are inseparable! You cannot say, “Jesus Yes, and Church No”. How can you separate the head from a body and still have life? In Ephesians 5:23 the Bible says Christ is the Head of the Church, which is His Body. In Acts 2:47 the Bible says that when you become a Christian, you become a part of the Church.Jesus loves the Church and died for the Church. Ephesians 5:25God commands us to meet together as the Church. Our purpose is to worship God and encourage one another. Hebrews 10:25

The Church is the Family of God. Many people think of the Church as a building, but it is really the people inside of the structure. To be a Christian means you are part of the Family of God. Other Christians are your new brothers and sisters in the faith. There are no “Lone Ranger” or “Free Agent” Christians. Jesus established a “Community of Believers.”

We invite you to and take  your place in the Church today!
