The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada is a family of churches; we make disciples and multiply transformational churches in Canada and the world to the glory of the Triune God.
O God, with all our hearts, we long for You. Come, transform us to be Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused people, multiplying disciples everywhere.
The fourfold gospel describes the historic emphasis of the C&MA on the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is our Saviour, our Sanctifier, our Healer, and our Coming King. These aspects of the ministry of Jesus is what defined the C&MA more than 100 years ago and continues to lay out the foundation of our work today.
The cross typifies Jesus Christ our Saviour. He died on a cross for our sins, and only through him can we be made right with God.
The laver illustrates Christ as our Sanctifier. The laver, a large basin used in God’s temple for washing, represents cleansing from sin by the power of the Holy Spirit. (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24)
The pitcher symbolizes Christ our Healer. It speaks of oil for divine life and physical healing. (Isaiah 53:4-5)
Our Coming King
The crown stands for Christ our Coming King. He will come back to this earth and reign forever. (Acts 1:11)
