Our Story & Beliefs
South Langley Church began as an outreach to children from East Aldergrove Mennonite Brethren Church (now Ross Road Community Church). In 1959, this group of young people purchased an acre of land in Brookswood, and in 1964 they began holding church services with 17 charter members.
We still desire to reach out to children and families in Brookswood and in our local neighborhoods.
We remain affiliated with the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. You can read our Confession of faith here: Confession of Faith.
We believe there is one God, never ending, who exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God revealed Himself in creation, through the Old and New Testaments, and ultimately through Jesus Christ, His Son. The inspired Word of God, the Bible, is our guide for faith and Christian living.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, is true God and true man.
We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God. By sinning they broke fellowship with God, bringing upon themselves and the entire human race physical and spiritual death. But Christ died for our sin. He rose on the third day delivering us from the power of sin, death.
We believe that all who put their trust in Jesus Christ receive the forgiveness of sin and are born again by the Holy Spirit as children of God.
We believe that peace and reconciliation are at the heart of the Christian gospel. God has called us to seek peace in all our relationships.
We are a community of God's people:
who come together to share the love we have received in Jesus Christ in a concerned caring way.
who come seeking to discover practical applications of God's Word for our lives.
who value worshiping God together, in the context of a multi-generational congregation.
who value Life Groups where we can grow and multiply through study, sharing and prayer.
We are affiliated with the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. Our heritage comes out of the Anabaptist-Mennonite movement of sixteenth century Europe with its strong commitment to the Word of God. The word "Brethren" emphasizes the ministry of all God's people in our church. Although we began with strong ethnic roots we have grown to embrace people of all races and denominations in the Body of Christ.
