Islington Baptist Church belongs to a group of churches called "The Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada." Within this association there are over 500 churches each holding to the same basic beliefs and practices.
In 1932, a small group of Christians decided to start a brand new church. After three and a half years of meeting in homes, this group of believers stepped out in faith and built what is now known as Islington Baptist Church.
Over the years, at least twelve full time pastors and their families have served here.
Under their leadership many have been brought to faith in Christ and equipped for the service of Christ.
Today, Islington Baptist Church remains committed to carrying out what is called "The Great Commission." This commissioning is found in Matthew 28:18-20, wherein Jesus says: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Pastor Sam loves studying and preaching the word of God and making it applicable to the lives of modern believers. He is a student at Tyndale Seminary, and since October 2017, has worked as a worship and youth pastor at Islington Baptist Church. He has a passion for youth and desires to see them follow Christ wholly and authentically in every aspect of life.
Sam loves playing and teaching music and leads worship on Sundays. He also preaches once a month, and loves encouraging others to use their gifts for the glory of God.
Several years ago we put in a wheelchair lift and refurbished our washrooms to be wheelchair accessible. If you are coming out for the first time and need to use the lift, please call ahead and leave a message on our answering machine at 416-236-8801. Then, when you do come, we'll have someone there to help you operate the lift.
