Zion Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ was founded in 1972 in Toronto, Ontario, shortly after Pastor K. Lindsay migrated from Jamaica. Although Pastor Lindsay attended many churches during his transition to Canada, he discovered his true calling. The call to pastor a church came through a vision of God singing in the sky: "hark the voice of Jesus call, who will go and work today." The voice continued singing, "if you cannot be the watchman standing high on Zion wall, pointing out souls to heaven, offering pardon and peace to all."
Pastor Lindsay took heed to the call of the Lord and Zion Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ was established. ZACJC's first building was located on Ossington Avenue. As the congregation grew there was a rapid need to expand and so the church relocated to Westmoreland Avenue followed by Ford Street, where the ZACJC family progressed into the new millennium. In 2010, ZACJC relocated once agin to its' current location on Sunrise Avenue in order to accommodate the increase in community outreach programs and have a spacious house of worship for all members and visitors.
