The church As We See It
We Seek Authentic Community
Assiniboia Apostolic Church is a Jesus church. It aims at the heart more than the actions, for the actions flow from the heart. We are a growing church, but we do not only measure growth by people in our seats. Real life change and a deep commitment to Christ is our passionate pursuit.
Assiniboia Apostolic Church is an open, welcoming community where worshipers and doubters are side-by-side. We are not afraid to ask and answer tough questions and we aren’t afraid to say, “We don’t know.” We embrace mystery because our God is a transcendent God.
We Care Deeply About Kids and Families
Assiniboia Apostolic Church deeply cares about kids and families because kids and families matter to God. We take seriously our responsibility to disciple the next generation because our God asks us to.
We believe our kids and families need the gospel the same as we do, not just cute Bible stories and lessons in character. We do not shy away from tough subjects, because our enemy doesn’t shy away from tough situations. Life is real; therefore, our instruction should reflect reality.
We Seek to Understand More of Our Great God
Assiniboia Apostolic Church believes in life-on-life discipleship. We believe that the greatest spiritual growth comes in community, therefore, we work hard to facilitate real relationships. We are not shy about our faults. We take seriously the command to spur one another on to good works.
We are a thinking church. We are not content to just slide ignorantly through life. Therefore, we are constant learners always seeking to understand more of our great God. As a result, we are a church filled with teachers and students.
We are serious about God but never take ourselves too seriously. We embrace tradition, but we will not be imprisoned by it. We love to think, but we are not afraid to have fun for the joy of the Lord is our strength.
We Are Engaged in the Issues of Our Communities
We are a generous church. We are not afraid of money and we will not be dominated by its pursuit. Because the earth is the Lord’s, we see ourselves as stewards and not owners. Therefore, we hold loosely everything God puts into our hands.
We are engaged in social transformation and cultural renewal. We seek to see His kingdom come; His will be done in Assiniboia as it is in Heaven. Therefore, we will not be content with building our little Christian kingdom, but rather we will engage in the issues of our communities.
We Are Comfortable with Who We Are
We’re not desperate to be noticed, but we stand out for our uniqueness. We are comfortable with who we are and we know that we aren’t going to be that for everyone.
We are not a cult of personality. Our church is not built on one person, or one gift. Yes, we have a leader, but we are comfortable with different voices and different expressions of leadership.
We Are a Spirit-filled Church
Finally, we are a spirit-filled church. We embrace the gifts and the move of the Holy Spirit. We desire authentic encounters with the Holy Spirit.
