Who we are
Truth Church of Calgary has grown and matured steadily since it was established in 1967. Under the leadership of founding pastor Rev. Raymond Sirstad until 1977 and Pastor Johnny King since then, the church has outgrown several facilities. We have been in our current Cambrian Heights location since 1991.
Truth Church is now a thriving multi-cultural congregation of about 300 with a vision to have members from every nation of the world. In addition to our main congregation, we also have church plants in the Philippines, Honduras, and Belize.
This is only the beginning of our story. God continues to pour out his favor on our assembly, and new people are being added to the church on a regular basis. We look forward to what God has in store for our future, and invite you to be a part of it.
What we believe
We believe that the Bible is God’s infallible, inspired Word (II Timothy 3:16)
We believe that there is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4), that He was manifest in the flesh through Jesus Christ (I Timothy 3:16), and that His Spirit dwells in believers (Romans 8:11).
We believe that man is by nature fallen from God’s grace through sin (Romans 3:23, 5:12).
We believe that the grace of God has appeared unto all men to bring salvation (Ephesians 2:8, Titus 3:5).
We believe that salvation is available to all (II Peter 3:9) through faith and obedience to the gospel, namely, repentance, baptism in Jesus’ name for the remission of sins, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38, I Peter 3:21, Romans 8:10).
We believe that the believer is called to holiness and purity of lifestyle (II Corinthians 6:17-18, 7:1, Hebrews 12:14).
We believe that divine healing is still experienced through prayer and faith (James 5:14).
We believe that the gifts of the Spirit should be effective in the company of believers according to the teachings of Paul (I Corinthians 12-14).
We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to rapture His church (John 14:3, Acts 1:11, I Thessalonians 4:16), and look for that blessed hope (Titus 2:13, Revelation 22:20).
We believe that all people will be judged according to the word of God (Romans 2:16, Hebrews 9:27), and rewarded according to their deeds with either everlasting life or eternal punishment (Romans 2:5-11, Revelation 21:7-8).
