The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada (BGEAC) is well known for the powerful evangelism or outreach ministry of our founder, Billy Graham. His mission is our mission: "Proclaiming the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to all we can by every effective means available to us, and equipping others to do the same."
Christ offers hope, encouragement and the gift of eternal life. The BGEAC is committed to proclaiming His message through a broad range of regional, national and international ministries - usingmethods and language that inspire, whatever the age group or culture.
To achieve our mission, we join with local churches and Christian communities - forging lasting partnerships to bring the Good News through word and deed.
All of our ministries are prayerfully led by men and women with a passion to share the Gospel.
Some of our ministries give Christians opportunities to explore their faith and learn to share it. Other ministries give non-believers a forum to ask questions and begin faith journeys, while additional ministries offer a helping hand to hurting people in unfortunate circumstances, regardless of their religion, race or culture.
Christ said: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself (Luke 10:27)."
At the BGEAC, modeling ourselves after our founder, we strive to do that every day..
"Proclaiming the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to all we can by every effective means available to us, and equipping others to do the same."
These core beliefs make up the foundation upon which all our ministry endeavors are based:
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association believes:
The Bible matters. • The Bible to be the infallible Word of God, that it is His holy and inspired Word, and that it is of supreme and final authority.
The Trinity matters. • In one God, eternally existing in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus matters. • Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself all our sins, died and rose again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our mediator and advocate.
We can't fix ourselves. • All people everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, and need to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross.
Jesus defeated death. • Christ rose from the dead and is coming soon.
Human needs matter. • In holy Christian living, and that we must have concern for the hurts and social needs of our fellow humans.
Obedience to God matters. • We must dedicate ourselves anew to the service of our Lord and to His authority over our lives.
Effective communication matters. • In using every modern means of communication available to us to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
