The Church at South Edmonton cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. The Church at South Edmonton is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.
The Church was started in 2010 by a trio of families. Back then, this trio of families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. The Church at South Edmonton hosted its first gathering in late 2010.
The Church at South Edmonton exists to reach people and influence our city by growing a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, Worship-driven church. Through genuine encounters with Jesus and the power of His Spirit, we desire to see hearts changed, lives healed, and people equipped and empowered to grow in their God-given giftings and purpose. As a church, our mission will be fulfilled as we develop disciples of Jesus who in turn impact the world through their expression of God’s love.
While the mission of a church is always consistent with the great commission, and church's visions may vary somewhat in describing how the church will fulfill its purpose, the values of a church are important to identify as they represent the unique DNA or spiritual characteristics and priorities of the church's culture and expression.
