our mission

Manifest is a church with a home-base in Calgary, Alberta—but people from far and wide consider us home. Our vision is to  plant Manifest “outposts” across Canada and beyond.

We exist to help everyone, everywhere become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We find Jesus captivating, beautiful, powerful, loving, irreplaceable, and glorious. We believe giving yourself to Jesus and His mission is the most important, worthwhile thing you can do with your life.

Our pastor

Brad and Shauna Huebert are our pastor couple. Brad has been serving Jesus in full-time ministry for, like, forever (28 years). You can check out his personal website HERE.

What do you believe?
We share our confession of faith with the Mennonite Brethren Conference. Here is a condensed version of that document:

We believe in God as eternal Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God created and sustains the universe. The eternal purpose of God the Father is to create a people who will bring glory to God forever. God alone is worthy of worship.

We believe that God became human in Jesus Christ. Jesus came to restore the world because humans have rejected God in disobedience. Jesus taught and modeled the way of God’s kingdom. He died on the cross, making it possible for us to accept a renewed relationship with God. He rose from the dead, broke the power of sin and death, and frees us to live in obedience to God’s will.

We believe that God the Holy Spirit invites all people to be reconciled with God and to join the global family of faith. Believers confess their faith, are baptized, and join in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and guided by the Bible, members of the church seek to live as followers of Christ and invite others to experience this new life.

As Christians, we are called to turn:

  • from ignorance of God to a personal relationship with God
  • from bondage of sin and past mistakes to freedom, forgiveness, and healing
  • from individualism to interdependence with others in the local church
  • from lifestyle choices that harm us, others, and the earth to choices that nurture wholeness, healing, joy, and peace
  • from hating enemies and ignoring neighbours to showing love and justice to all
  • from loving possessions to sharing with all in need
  • from aimless existence to a mission of representing and proclaiming God’s kingdom on earth

As Christians, we look forward to the day when God will once again send Jesus to bring all things under God’s eternal rule.

Is Manifest part of a denomination?
Yes we are. We’re thankful members of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (CCMBC). You can check out their website HERE.
Why did you call the church Manifest?

Because Jesus is amazing. When he’s manifest—when his love, truth, grace, gospel, and power is experienced in tangible ways—amazing things happen in our hearts and lives. Christianity isn’t just a set of beliefs; it’s Jesus, living and moving in and through us. That makes us “manifesters”—people who live to manifest Jesus Christ.
