welcome to koinonia!

What is koinonia?

Our name comes from a Greek word meaning partnership or fellowship.  It's all about the shared life of Christ, which is the bond that unifies us.  It represents community, shared action, benevolence, and relationships.  Our relationship with God is incomplete without our relationships with one another.

Our Core Values: Heart of the house

  • MISSION: We are building a place to belong to.

  • WORSHIP: Love responding to love.

  • SERVANTHOOD: We are most like Jesus when we serve.

  • STEWARDSHIP: We believe God is the owner of all things.

  • GENERATIONS: We are building a church our kids want to take over.

In order to help you get to know who we are as a church, we have created Heart of the House, 5 video lessons that explain our vision, mission and core values. Click on the button above to get started.


Pastor Steve & Beth Fleming founded Koinonia in 1984 and had their first service at the Waterloo Inn. In 1986, we relocated to our present location in Bloomingdale, Ontario (near Kitchener/Waterloo). Since that time, we have been undergoing continual expansions to house our growing church family.

In 1993, Koinonia Christian Academy was established for students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. In 1994, we began our Servant Leadership Institute. In September 2007, we launched byDesign Arts Academy that focuses on teaching music, dance, and acting to the community. Today the church, school, and programs continue to thrive and grow and we are excited about all that God has in store for our future!
