Calgary True Light Gospel Church’s name comes from John 1 : 9 “The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.” True Light is a member of the Baptist General Conference in Alberta and Baptist General Conference of Canada.
The church meets in the Community Centre of Edgemont (33 Edgevalley Circle NW) in Calgary at 10:30 AM on Sundays and serves the Mandarin-speaking Chinese community in the NW of Calgary. The church also has five bible study groups that meet twice a month. The English children and youth program is run jointly with Northwest Community Church, which meets at the same time in the same building.
The church was planted jointly by Calgary Rainbow Christian Church and Calgary Northwest Community Church with the support of the Baptist General Conference in Alberta and Baptist General Conference of Canada. The first Sunday worship service was held on January 5, 2014.
