is our mission? We exist to reach up, reach out and reach
in. We reach up in worship to God, individually through-out
the week and corporately on Sunday mornings. We reach out with the
Good News of God’s love in both word and deed. We reach out to the
poor and marginalized in our city and around the world. We reach
in through fellowship and discipleship. We become closer to one
another and grow up to maturity, becoming more like Jesus Christ.
See Acts 2:42-47 for an example of the early church living this
out. Come visit us on a Sunday morning to see how we’re attempting
to live this out in 2012.
is our vision? We desire to see our city transformed. We
believe the gospel has the ability to renovate a life, a marriage,
a home, a church, a neighbourhood, a city. We evaluate how we are
doing by checking the crime statistics in District 8 where our
church is located. If we’re doing our job, we believe crime will
decrease because the gospel is life-altering. See Proverbs
11:11 for our prayer for our city.
are our beliefs? We believe in following Jesus because of who
He is and what He does. We believe the Bible has revealed
God’s narrative to our world and we find ourselves in this grand
story. Canyon Creek Christian Fellowship belongs to the
Baptist General Conference of Alberta and the Baptist General
Conference of Canada and we submit to the doctrinal statement of
historical Christianity. You can view that statement here.
are our actions? Jesus criticized the religious leaders of His
day who knew the Bible of the time and the correct ‘doctrines’,
but didn’t let it seep down into their hearts and souls. We
believe that beliefs ought to spiritually transform us into loving
God and loving others (see Matthew 22:36-40).
