Welcome! We want FAC to feel like home – even if you’re just checking things out. First Alliance Church is a community of people who gather from all walks of life and ages to connect, grow, serve, and share in Jesus’ name at 3 campus locations.

As part of The Alliance Canada denomination, we want to positively impact the city of Calgary and beyond by building lives that honour God.

We're all about ...

  • Connecting

    Small group settings build meaningful community and encourages us to grow and serve with other followers of Jesus.

  • Growing

    Spiritual growth is about understanding who Jesus Christ is and becoming more like Him, one step at a time.

  • Sharing

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

  • Serving

    We serve God when we serve others by getting involved at FAC and in our community.

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 our denomination, The Alliance Canada.
