Question Everything

We’re inviting Albertans to ‘Question Everything’ - to look at the world through different eyes and consider the world more deeply.

Why is the world the way it is?
Why so much pain?
Why so much beauty?
What can this all mean?

Why bother?

Statistics tell an uncertain story, but many believe they speak of declining church attendance and increasing secularization.

For example, all major Protestant denominations, except two, declined during the 1990s; and nearly 700,000 Albertans reported in 2001 that they had no faith, a 34% increase on 10 years prior. But sociologist Reginald Bibby believes the numbers tell a different story - 25% of Albertans now report attending church on a weekly basis, up from 18% in 1992. Secularization is leading to the revitalization of religion, he says, not its death, as the doomsayers suggest.

The truth is, when it comes to our friends, families and local communities, we all know real life can’t be reduced to a number. Real life consists of individual stories of pain and brokenness, and of people desperately in need of finding answers to life’s questions. In short, people who need to meet Jesus, and experience life in all its fullness.

The surprising thing is that fully 65% of Albertans have said they would be open to greater religious involvement if they thought it would be worthwhile. Alberta 2013 is designed to help them see just that - that the message of Jesus is as relevant to today’s questions and challenges as it ever was.

Why a province wide campaign?

We want to make a BIG difference in our communities.

We want every church in Alberta to benefit from the momentum generated by this initiative. We want to see individual lives transformed by the power of the Gospel; local communities rejuvenated with a new passion for life; and churches revitalized with fresh purpose to shepherd their flock.

So come on. What are you waiting for?
