ABOUT CANADA WEST DISTRICT
These are the beliefs Nazarene's hold to be true:
We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.
We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
Our District Purpose
Canada West District is the extension of the Global network of Nazarene churches and ministries that covers the three prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. It consists of 36 congregations and 7 Compassionate Ministry Centers. We are a people who truly love God and try hard to make a positive difference in whatever community we find ourselves. Our expressions of faith come in many ways with a wide variety of worship - some are liturgical and based on the ancient traditions of the church; others are contemporary and geared to a present generation of believers; still others are in different languages and customs (Spanish, Sudanese, Congolese, Hindi). We are found in small rural towns and large cities - but we believe you will find a warm and receptive welcome wherever you go.
Caring for the needs of those who live on the thin edge of hope is also an expression of Christlike faith and to help us with that we have 7 Compassionate Ministries who provide a wide range of services in response to the needs of others - including food programs, clothing banks, counselling services, transitional housing programs. It is, for us, an important outlet for giving back some of the blessings we have received.
