First Mennonite Church is rooted in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. We are called as a community of faith to worship God, proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, engage in Christian fellowship, and reach out in service to the world. Jesus is at the centre of our faith, community is at the centre of our life, and peace, nonviolence, and reconciliation are at the centre of our faith lived out.

Who We Are

 






Vision Statement

We share the vision statement of Mennonite Church Canada:

Our Approach to Confessions of Faith

While it is important to summarize and affirm key beliefs, we recognize that no one statement can include all that is important to our church and its participants. Confessions connect us to the wider church by identifying some of the beliefs and understandings that shape us. Faith statements allow us to celebrate our unity with each other while recognizing it is not necessary nor desirable that everyone agree on every point; and provide general guidelines for discussion, challenge, and mutual growth.

The Safe Place Policy is intended to balance the spiritual, moral, and ethical responsibilities of the First Mennonite Church with its legal obligations under the laws of Canada and the Province of Alberta.
