Description

Catch the Fire, previously known (until 2010) as Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship (TACF) is a non-denominational neocharismatic Christian church in Toronto, Canada. It is affiliated with Catch The Fire and with Partners in Harvest group of churches. The church is famous as the birth place and center of the Toronto Blessing, a prominent religious revival and phenomenon in charismatic Christianity during the 1990s.

Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship is a multisite church with campuses meeting in various venues throughout the Greater Toronto Area. TACF Airport is the primary and largest campus. Senior pastors are Steve and Sandra Long. Pastors John and Carol Arnott founded the church around 1988. The church later joined John Wimber's Vineyard movement and was known as Toronto Airport Vineyard Church. It met in various rented locations throughout Toronto until the early 1990s when the church found a more permanent home near the Lester B. Pearson Airport. In 2010, Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship changed its name to Catch The Fire Toronto, to go along with its new international church planting vision.

At TACF revival services, worshippers have exhibited unusual behaviours that they attribute to an encounter with God and the presence of the Holy Spirit. The most common described behaviours include laughter (often referred to as "holy laughter"), weeping, deep bowing, shaking, "drunkenness" (a reference to Acts 2:13-15 and Ephesians 5:18), slain in the Spirit and speaking in tongues. Other less common behaviours include producing sounds that resemble animals, such as roaring like lions. The TACF website described it thus: "The Toronto Blessing is a transferable anointing. In its most visible form it overcomes worshippers with outbreaks of laughter, weeping, groaning, shaking, falling, 'drunkenness,' and even behaviours that have been described as a 'cross between a jungle and a farmyard.'" The church is also the site where the prophecy of the golden sword was given.
