Our History

The Fellowship is a family of over 500 Evangelical Baptist Churches scattered across Canada from the Yukon to the tip of Nova Scotia. Our churches range in size from a few dozen to several hundred, and hold worship services in 13 different languages.

The Fellowship was born in 1953 out of a desire for a nationwide body of churches committed to the truth of God’s Word and the proclamation of salvation through Jesus Christ. Over the last 52 years, several hundred churches have joined The Fellowship, either in large blocs (such as the Regular Baptist Churches of British Columbia in 1965) or individually. The dozens of church-planting projects undertaken by Fellowship churches and ministries continue to be our main source of growth.

The churches of The Fellowship share a burden for reaching the world with the good news of Jesus Christ. Through our overseas mission, Fellowship International, we currently minister in more than 20 countries worldwide.

The Fellowship's Francophone Ministry exists to support Francophone church plants and nurture French-language churches across Canada in environments that have often proved to be hostile to the Gospel. This is done through partnerships between established Fellowship churches and church plants that have a passion to impact a target area with the Gospel of Christ.

Through our Chaplaincy Ministries, The Fellowship is able to minister to Canadians in the workplace by meeting the spiritual needs of those who might never walk into a church on their own.

As The Fellowship seeks to implement its vision for the 21st century – seeking spiritual renewal, growing healthy churches and strategically planting new churches – we pray that God will continue to bless this nationwide family of believers and use us to bring glory to His name.
