Who we are
InterVarsity at the U of A is a member of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship of Canada, which has fellowships on over 50 university campuses across Canada. IVCF has a deep commitment to raising up students who will be extraordinary leaders on their campuses and in this world. While the student leaders of InterVarsity are committed to following Jesus, we welcome all students, wherever they are in their spiritual journeys, to be part of this community.
Being led by the Spirit and shaped by the Word, the purpose of Inter-Varsity Christian fellowship is the transformation of youth, students and graduates, in all their ethnic diversity, into fully committed followers of Jesus.
There are IVCF groups on over 50 university campuses across Canada. IVCF also has a summer camping ministry for kids.

We believe in:
The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things, existing eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – full of love and glory.
The unique divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness and authority of the Bible.
The value and dignity of all people: created in God's image to live in love and holiness, but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt, and justly subject to God's wrath.
Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who lived as a perfect example, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Saviour and Lord.
Justification by God's grace to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service.
The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches making disciples throughout the world.
The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ, who will judge all people with justice and mercy, giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.
To God be glory forever.
