Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada
Alta Vista is a member of the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada. The Fellowship is a voluntary association of churches. Membership in the Fellowship requires that each church be in accord with the Fellowship’s belief statement. Other than this basic requirement, Fellowship churches enjoy a great measure of independence – with ties formed through relationships, rather than lines of authority.
Ottawa Valley Association
The Ottawa Valley Association of Fellowship Baptist churches (OVA) is Alta Vista’s local connection to the larger FEB Central (Ontario) association and then National Association of Fellowship Baptists. The OVA’s mission is to “Promote health and growth among OVA churches and to aggressively plant new churches under the FEBC.” The OVA is comprised of 16 member churches that are found in eastern Ontario from Combermere to Pembroke, to Ottawa, to Cornwall.
