Welcome to First Baptist Church , Kingston , Ontario. We are a community of diverse people who have found meaning, hope and forgiveness in following the Lord Jesus Christ. We want to share our love of Jesus with you. Life is full of paradoxes. Yet, we are committed to ministry in the Greater Kingston community and, indeed, through our partners, the rest of the world.
We are a Baptist Church
-belonging to the mainstream evangelical faith
-committed to the message and the values of the Good News
-in membership with the Central Canada Association of Baptist Churches, the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec, Canadian Baptist Ministries, the Baptist World Alliance, the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, and the Canadian Council of Churches.
We are open to working with all churches who claim Jesus Christ as their Lord.
We have a reputation for being a compassionate and caring church with strong ministries to refugees, families of prisoners and ex-convicts through Project Reconciliation, and the Helen Tufts Nursery School .
We aim to be an open and inclusive family church
-where worship is living and relevant (blended worship Sunday morning, contemporary worship Sunday evening)
-which provides rich nurture and supportive fellowship for all ages
-which reaches out and is open to the local, national, and global communities
Jesus in His High Priestly Prayer in John 17:13 declares, "I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them." (Today's New International Version). The words of Jesus and indeed all of Holy Scripture are to give to each of us the full measure of Christ's joy within us. I hope and pray that each of you may experience the joy of Jesus Christ in your own life to the fullest.
Christ calls us on a journey away from the addiction to a sinful life to experience His complete joy. Have you experienced that joy? It is our prayer that in these pages and through the various links that you would know something about our church, but, more importantly, that you would know, in an experiential way, the Lord of the Church, Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah or Anointed One.
You will receive a warm welcome at our services on Sundays, at our weekday activities. We are here to help and support you in Jesus' name.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Your Servant in Christ,
(Rev.) Kevin Smith
