Our mission at Avalon Alliance Church is to love God, to reach out with the message of Jesus, to welcome people into personal faith and our church family, to build them up to maturity in Christ, and to equip them for ministry.
Our vision at Avalon Alliance Church is be a family who loves Jesus so deeply, that we love one another sacrificially and love our neighbour at every opportunity.

Statement of Faith
Our Statement of Faith identifies the core beliefs of The Alliance Canada.
What we believe determines what we value, and what we value defines how we live.
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. (John 3:16)
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)
