Church and Mission - Christian Church in Canadian City Christians everywhere are called to witness to God’s love in all aspects of their personal lives and in their involvement in the world around them. Christians in Canada come together to worship God, pray and learn from Scripture. Their participation in churches is vital to their spiritual well-being.

Many Christians, Evangelicals among them, agree that their mission goes beyond church walls to how they live their lives in family and community and how they engage with others in Canadian society and around the globe. How they engage in mission varies from one church community to another, but blessing others in the name of Jesus is a common goal for them all.
