The #1 Resource for Pastors

Because the CBWC exists to resource and support churches and pastors, we have developed a series of pastoral resources to support your ministry.

Culture Statement

The Culture Statement summarizes the core beliefs of Canadian Baptists of Western Canada.


Ministerial Protocol Manual

The Ministerial Protocol Manual ( MPM ) is the CBWC’s document of ministerial standards supported by the churches of the CBWC by vote at its regular assemblies. The ‘Ministerial Credentials
Committee’ (MCC) has been assigned the task of enacting and supporting all regulations as outlined in the MPM. The Ministerial Ordination Standards and Procedures, and the Accreditation Process, and The Guidelines on Pastoral Ethics, and Disciplinary Review Process are all described in this manual.
