The Western Canadian District of The Christian & Missionary Alliance has over 140 churches and congregations across Alberta & the Northwest Territories.The pulse of our movement is articulated in our prayer:
“O GOD, WITH ALL OUR HEARTS, WE LONG FOR YOU. COME, TRANSFORM US TO BE CHRIST-CENTRED, SPIRIT EMPOWERED, MISSION-FOCUSED PEOPLE, MULTIPLYING DISCIPLES EVERYWHERE.”
This prayer reflects the cry of our hearts as we desire to align our will with God’s in being set apart for His redemptive purpose in the world.
It is our desire for our churches to be known by the love we have for each other, as we embrace the marginalized and extend hope where despair reigns; becoming places of hope and healing where everyone belongs. We want to contribute to the health and vitality of our surrounding community, as we live ‘mission focused’ locally and send people globally.
With a changing societal landscape around us, we remain flexible in responding to the moving of God’s Spirit as we move creatively in planting gospel communities among ethnically and culturally diverse peoples.
