Our Mission

The mission of ARPA Canada is to educate, equip, and encourage Reformed Christians to political action and to bring a biblical perspective to our civil authorities. ARPA Canada exists because we care. We care about our nation, our communities, our families, and our freedoms. Most of all, we care about what God says is good and right. Jesus Christ told us that the greatest commandment is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” and to “Love your neighbour as yourself.” How do we show love? By living our lives in devotion to Him.

Why would LGBTQ want to apply to TW? So why do we have to bend to their whims? If this case stays, I agree that other Christian schools and possibly churches will be the next target. May God save Canada!

Sounds like you have grounds for appeal. I like your point about the judgment of ‘discrimination’ is not actually grounded in Law.

These judges have been bought out by the demonic forces hell bent on setting things up so that CHRISTIANITY is outlawed in this country. This is a huge step in this toward this.

This is not all bad news ,if the law society is a private entity it has every right to exclude people who do not share their worldview. They are however seriously marginalizing themselves by aligning themselves with a tiny group who choose to be identified primarily by how they achieve sexual arousal, which happens to be a very fically unpredictable body function. This is what has to be argued in court sexual orientation is by no means an identity in the same way as skin color is

Men, Romans 8:18-30, you are working hard for the cause of Christ yet here is the groaning that we're experiencing in a fallen world...But we hope in Christ as we groan all the way to glory. The mystery of God's good providence.

But it is okay for Liberals to require a denial of peoples choice to qualify for student loans. Double standards.

In just two days (June 15th) the Supreme Court will release its decision regarding the Trinity Western Law School. Those following this case will know that ARPA Canada intervened at the lower courts and also at the Supreme Court of Canada. On Friday morning, ARPA lawyers André Schutten and John Sikkema (with other lawyers involved in the case) will be allowed to read the judgement inside the Supreme Court before it is released to the public. Lord willing, they will be able to share their thoughts immediately afterwards with you, our dear supporters, via Facebook Live. If you aren’t able to catch them live, don’t worry – we’ll be sending further updates throughout the day on Friday. Be sure to check your email for the latest! #TWU
