Join us for Christmas Eve at FAC! Learn more

Welcome! We want FAC to feel like home – even if it’s your first time. Want to learn more about FAC?  First Alliance Church is a community of several thousand people who gather from all walks of life and ages to connect, grow, serve and share in Jesus’ name.

As part of The Christian and Missionary Alliance of Canada, we want to make a positive impact in the city of Calgary and beyond by building lives that honour God.

We are committed to...

  • Connecting

    Small group settings can be the best places to serve, pray, learn, and grow with other followers of Jesus. Connecting in small groups build meaningful community.

  • Growing

    Spiritual growth is about understanding who Jesus Christ is and becoming more like Him.

  • Sharing

    Good news is meant to be shared! We want to share the love and message of Jesus Christ with others through local and global partnerships.

  • Serving

    We serve God when we serve others by volunteering at FAC and in our communities.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the truth, and that Jesus has invited, called, and empowered each of us to live on mission to reach the world with His love. Our statement of faith follows that of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada.
