We are a body of believers with a rich heritage dating back to the mid 1800’s. Although we stand alone as a non-denominational group, we are affiliated with other Churches of Christ, Christian Churches and Disciples of Christ groups. We have been a congregation in Calgary for over 100 years and have many families with deep roots in Calgary and in our church. We also have a very diverse group of members from all over the world and we are thankful that God has unified us together to worship him.
Churches of Christ are one fellowship among three that are historically part of the Restoration Movement, sometimes known as the Stone-Campbell Movement. The other two are the Christian Church and The Disciples of Christ.
There are about 13,000 Churches of Christ in North America, with another 11,000 or so in the remainder of the world. There are about 140 Churches of Christ in Canada.
Several things form the identity of the Churches of Christ:
- We attempt to be biblical in everything we do.
- We attempt to emulate the earliest churches with respect to organization and worship.
- We began as a movement of Christians devoted to the unity of the entire body of Christ.
- Our churches are autonomous, with no head office or denominational structure. Each church is self-governed by a body of Elders.
Northeast Calgary is an exceptionally diverse culture, with thousands of immigrants and refugees residing within just a few kilometers’ radius of the Calgary Church of Christ. Hence, in our congregation you will find numerous ethnic populations represented.
Many African, Filipino and South American Christians have made the Calgary Church of Christ their church home. We attempt to acknowledge and embrace our cultural diversity, counting it as one of our greatest blessings!
Our Mission & Vision
The Mission of our church is:
To Reach the World for the Lord Jesus Christ One Person at a Time
Our core Vision is the most clearly stated “How to” when it comes to fulfilling our mission. We want to be about the task of:
“Making Biblical Disciples Through Relational Environments”
In short, this means that we want to help everyone grow in Christ through involvement in one of our Life Groups. We also have goals and strategies that form Our Expanded Vision.
