St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Calgary, traces its beginnings to the commencement of the 20th century. In 1905, as Alberta became a province, Rev. J.A. Clark, minister of Knox Presbyterian Church (now Knox United) suggested that a congregation be established in east Calgary. The Session of Knox decided to engage the services of Rev. Alexander Dunn as an assistant for Rev. Clark. Rev. Dunn would be responsible for generating interest in a congregation for East Calgary by conducting Sunday evening services.
As a congregation of The Presbyterian Church in Canada, our beliefs are summarized in the subordinate standards of our church, the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Declaration of Faith concerning Church and Nation, and Living Faith/Foi Vivante - as well as through the Ecumenical Creeds.
But mostly, we believe that the Apostle James was right when he wrote "by my works I will show you my faith."
So below is less a statement of theology than the ways we seek to live out what we believe.
