The term fourfold Gospel describes the historic emphasis of The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada (C&MA) on the person of Jesus Christ. These characteristics of Jesus and His ministry are what defined the C&MA more than 100 years ago, and they continue to lay out the foundation of our Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused work today. Our founder A.B. Simpson’s life was transformed by encountering the power and presence of Jesus and it is our hope that you encounter Him as well.
The pitcher symbolizes Christ our Healer. It uses the symbol of oil for divine life and physical healing.
The crown stands for Christ our Coming King. He will come back to this earth and reign forever.
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.
