We are excited that you are taking the time to find out more about Bow Valley Baptist Church.

Bow Valley Baptist Church’s purpose is to Love Like Jesus, Live Like Jesus, and Change Our World. When the Church faithfully follows Jesus Christ in loving and living, lives are wonderfully changed both now and for eternity; the abundant life that Jesus desires for all becomes realized. Jesus said, “…I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” John 10:10

1 |  Love Like Jesus

Love is at the core of our faith. Jesus's message is one of love—love for God, love for one another, and love for ourselves through faith in Christ. To love like Jesus means to love unconditionally, to see the beauty and worth in every individual, and to extend a hand of friendship and support to those in need.

“No one has greater love than this: to lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13


2 |  Live Like Jesus

This part of our mission statement reminds us of the profound importance of living our lives in accordance with the teachings and example set by Jesus. As Christians, we are called to emulate His compassion, humility, and selflessness. Living like Jesus means striving for a life of integrity, kindness, and faithfulness.

“And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” Ephesians 4:32

3 |  Change our World

Our mission statement's final phrase reminds us that we are not called to be passive observers but active agents of change. Our faith should not be confined to the walls of our church but extend into our homes, workplaces, and communities.

Changing the world means being a force for the Good News of Jesus Christ, advocating for justice, and striving for His Kingdom, where peace, love, and compassion prevail.

“You are the light of the world… let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” Matt 5:14a,16

They include discipleship through multiple small groups, a vibrant youth ministry, the Ignite Ministry and Awana for children and their families, a dynamic worship team, and more.


Church Life

We believe that impact is most felt in our relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, and the Cochrane community.

We seek to serve and add value to our community of Cochrane by hosting events and volunteering for our community and its programs to help those in need.
