About Us

We are a local church in Calgary that was started in 1999.
This was birthed when members of WIN-Dubai (UAE) migrated to Calgary and had the burden of starting a church
   that would reach out initially to the Filipino community and eventually to the entire city.
For the present we are a church that is predominantly Filipino but with a vision to reaching out to Calgarys multicultural population.
WIN-Calgary is a registered society in the province of Alberta & has charitable status.

10. In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
  and of the Holy Ghost. (Mark 2:22-23; Matt. 19:14; 28:19-20; Rom. 6:3-4)
11. That divine healing is provided for all through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. (Isa. 53:4-5; Matt. 8:16-17; 1 Peter 2:24)
12. In observing the Lords Supper and washing of the saintsfeet. (1 Cor. 11:23-29; John 13:1-17)
