WELCOME

About us

Thousands of us come together each week, from all walks of life, all cultures and all ages. The Bible is our plumbline – the absolute truth that sets in motion our teaching, our use of the arts and how we relate to each other and to God. We want more than anything as individuals and as a church to impact the city of Calgary and beyond. As part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Canada, we also get to partner with some amazing people in other parts of the world as they also "build lives that honour God."

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

This may be a big church, but it's small at the same time through Small Groups and every other ministry within the church.

What we believe

There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.

The Holy Spirit is a divine Person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, and empower the believer, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement.

The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of people. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.

Humankind, originally created in the image and likeness of God, fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All people are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The destiny of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment, but that of the believer is everlasting joy and bliss.

Salvation has been provided only through Jesus Christ. Those who repent and believe in Him are united with Christ through the Holy Spirit and are thereby regenerated (born again), justified, sanctified and granted the gift of eternal life as adopted children of God.

It is the will of God that in union with Christ each believer should be sanctified thoroughly, thereby being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to God, receiving power for holy living and sacrificial and effective service toward the completion of Christ's commission. This is accomplished through being filled with the Holy Spirit, which is both a distinct event and progressive experience in the life of the believer.

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil as taught in the Scriptures are privileges for the Church in this present age.

The universal Church, of which Christ is the Head, consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and commissioned by Christ to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations. The local church, the visible expression of the universal Church, is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together to worship God, to observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, to pray, to be edified through the Word of God, to fellowship, and to testify in word and deed to the good news of salvation both locally and globally. The local church enters into relationships with other like-minded churches for accountability, encouragement and mission.

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgement.

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal and visible. As the believer's blessed hope, this vital truth is an incentive for holy living and sacrificial service toward the completion of Christ's commission.

We are committed to...

CONNECTING

Small group settings can be the best places to serve, pray, learn and grow together. The friendships that happen here keep us from feeling lost in the crowd – give us each a sense of belonging, of family in the best sense of the word.

GROWING

It's about understanding who Jesus Christ is and becoming more like Him. We believe the Bible is the definitive book about God and what each person's relationship with Him can look like.

SERVING

We serve God by serving other people within the church and our community. There are all kinds of ways to get involved – just about everything we do gives volunteers the chance to be involved in something bigger than ourselves.

SHARING

It's in our DNA to share the love and hope of Jesus Christ with others, here within our walls, in our city and around the world. We want to be real with people in our lives, and to use everything at our disposal to train people around the world to share God's grace.

Board of elders

Our Elders are volunteers who join with our pastoral leadership to prayerfully forward the vision and direction of FAC. Each is committed to building lives that honour God and making FAC a place that serves our community.
