Who we are
Rosewood Park Alliance Church is a place where God meets people who are far from perfect.
That means anyone is welcome no matter where they are on their spiritual journey.
We believe that God plays no favourites (you can find it in the Bible) and Jesus had this way of cutting through the clutter and meeting people where they were...putting people at ease by accepting them ‘as is’, in order to prepare their hearts for the Good News... which is that God loves you so much, that he sent His son Jesus for you. If you choose to believe in him, you do not need to fear death, but you have access to eternal life and a relationship with God!
This is the most precious gift that God could ever give, and he offers it to every one of us as a free gift! We don't have to work for it!
So, come as you are! You don't need to wear certain things or talk a certain way. God wants you to meet with Him. We hope you can come and experience all that God has for you, here at Rosewood!
What We Believe
Rosewood Park Alliance Church is a part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination. To view information on The Alliance Canada, please click here.
Below is The Alliance Canada's Statement of faith which Rosewood Park Alliance Church affirms:
There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is a divine Person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, and empower the believer, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement.
The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of people. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
Humankind, originally created in the image and likeness of God, fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All people are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The destiny of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment, but that of the believer is everlasting joy and bliss.
FREEDOM FROM SIN
Salvation has been provided only through Jesus Christ. Those who repent and believe in Him are united with Christ through the Holy Spirit and are thereby regenerated (born again), justified, sanctified and granted the gift of eternal life as adopted children of God.
It is the will of God that in union with Christ each believer should be sanctified thoroughly, thereby being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to God, receiving power for holy living and sacrificial and effective service toward the completion of Christ's commission. This is accomplished through being filled with the Holy Spirit, which is both a distinct event and progressive experience in the life of the believer.
Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil as taught in the Scriptures are privileges for the Church in this present age.
The universal Church, of which Christ is the Head, consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and commissioned by Christ to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations. The local church, the visible expression of the universal Church, is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together to worship God, to observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, to pray, to be edified through the Word of God, to fellowship, and to testify in word and deed to the good news of salvation both locally and globally. The local church enters into relationships with other like-minded churches for accountability, encouragement and mission.
LIFE AFTER DEATH
There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgement.
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal and visible. As the believer's blessed hope, this vital truth is an incentive for holy living and sacrificial service toward the completion of Christ's commission.
Where we're headed
Our passion is to know, apply and proclaim the life-changing message of Jesus Christ, by becoming a community of authentic Christ followers.
Our vision is to reach the Northwest Community of Regina through tangible ways and outreach.
This means that we desire to grow in our relationship with Jesus constantly and consistently. We also believe that God desires us to be a part of the community that he has placed us in to help meet the needs of those around us. When we can do both of those things; loving God and loving others, then we believe we are fulfilling exactly what God desires for us.
What this means for you
We encourage you not to just be a spectator. Take a risk. Meet some people. Check out a group. Get involved. Go deeper. Life change is about momentum – little steps you take toward God build on one another and lead to extraordinary results. At Rosewood, always be looking for your next step.
We also want to be a church of our community. We believe God has placed us here for a very specific reason. We will constantly be looking for ways we can meet the needs of our community. In order to help people see their need for Jesus, we need to help meet their physical needs as well.
