Our Future Home

As Senior Pastor and on behalf of the family of the First Baptist Church, I want to thank you for visiting our website. At the First Baptist Church, we believe God calls each of us to be engaged in a passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ. There is no higher calling than to seek the Lord with all your heart, and in so doing, to glorify Him. We welcome you to join us in this pursuit. The fact that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and then rose from the grave is our fundamental belief. He lives today and stands ready to give abundant and eternal life to all those who repent of sin and place their faith in Him. We invite everyone to receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.

What a joy it is to introduce you to our church! At the First Baptist Church, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey.

One of life’s most beautiful words is ‘family’. At the First Baptist Church, we take seriously the Bible’s teaching that Christians are the family of God and therefore brothers and sisters in Christ. As a “family of faith” we seek to worship and serve God, share the good news of the gospel message, and provide the spiritual environment necessary for the believer’s spiritual growth.

In short, you will find us to be a God centered, caring community of individuals who are excited about having the opportunity to extend to you the same love, hope and joy we have received from the Lord. We extend to you a cordial invitation to join us this coming Lord’s Day as the family meets to draw near to God through prayer, thoughtful contemporary songs, traditional hymns and inspiring relevant messages from God’s Word. After the worship service we linger over refreshments, so please take a moment to get to know us better. God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,  
Pastor Keith Axford

"A Great Awakening?: Revival in Canada"    
From Christianity Today:  (click on link to read entire article)
Revival fires are burning in the prairie provinces of Canada (see December 3 issue, page 33), and some church leaders predict the movement will flare into a great spiritual awakening across the entire nation—making it Canada’s first nationwide revival in history.

“All these years I’ve been building my church, and now I’ve seen everything I built completely crumble. I saw my board members, my deacons, my Sunday-school teachers—the best people I had—all coming forward to get right with God.

“Then I saw God take that crumbled structure and build a real church, his church. It’s beautiful to behold.”

That is how pastor William L. McLeod of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, described the revival that began in his church in mid-October. It has spread to thousands of persons, to churches and Bible colleges in Regina, Winnepeg, Edmonton, Toronto, to towns like Moose Jaw and Swift Current.

It all began when evangelists Ralph and Lou Sutera, 37-year-old twins from Mansfield, Ohio, arrived at Ebenezer for a ten-day crusade that had been the subject of congregational prayer for two years. The Suteras brought with them a team of lay people who told what God had done during meetings in Prince George, British Columbia.

Ebenezer’s people crowded to the altar night after night, confessing their sins, voicing their praises, making amends, vowing renewed dedication, relating how God had given them personal spiritual victories...
