King Street Baptist Church
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
My Dear Church Family,
In consultation with our Leadership Team (the Deacons Board and Executive Board) on August 25, the following decision was made: to continue to keep the church facilities closed and to continue the cancellation of worship services and all other events within the building through October 31 or until further notice. This decision was made carefully in light of the reopening of the schools in September and the possibility of a second wave of COVID-19. When we feel that we can safely reopen the church building and resume our regular worship services, then we will consider a different restart date.
In the meantime, we invite you to join us for virtual Sunday worship services at 11:00 am from the comfort of your own home, either online via the Internet (see Events page) or by phoning in to participate. Instructions will be sent out weekly for you to follow so that you can join us as we worship together at a distance.
The secretary and I will alternate going into the church office on Monday and Thursday mornings, and the deacons and I will always be available to you by phone or email for your pastoral care needs and concerns.
Thank you for continuing to give generously to the church through your regular tithes and offerings. You can do this either by mailing your cheque (inside your church envelope) directly to the church address or by giving your online donation using e-transfer by following the instructions sent out earlier by email. Each Thursday morning, between 11:00 and 11:30, I invite you to join me from your home for a time of mutual prayer. Although we are being kept apart physically, we can still join together in prayer wherever we are.
I will continue to email my Morning Meditations daily and my updated Prayer List weekly. My Video Messages will now be posted once a week on our church website and Facebook and YouTube. I will also phone each of you every week to check on your physical and spiritual well-being. If you feel comfortable, I would be happy to have a brief “porch visit” with you outside your home, keeping a safe distance. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email should you be interested in scheduling a friendly in-person chat.
This is indeed a difficult and demanding and frustrating time for all of us. As we wait for the situation to improve and the crisis to end, let us continue to pray fervently and continually for one another, our sister churches, our neighbours, our communities, our leaders, our province, our nation, and our world, plus the medical teams, paramedics, and all other front-line workers. Pray that God will contain this virus and lead the research scientists to develop and distribute an effective vaccine. Pray also that the reopening and restarting of the schools will be safe for all the students, teachers, staff, and communities here in Ontario and across Canada.
Sincerely in our Saviour's love,
What we Believe:
This Church accepts the Holy Bible as its authority in all matters of faith and practice. Our understanding of Christian truth as contained in the Bible is in essential accord with the affiliated Baptist churches, but we have no statement of creed apart from the New Testament.
To worship God and administer the ordinances of the New Testament.
To provide opportunity for spiritual growth.
To express God's love within our Church family.
To bring people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord through proclamation of the Gospel of Christ.
To teach the principles of Christian living for the development of Christ-like character.
To support actively the spreading of Gospel of Christ throughout the world.
To promote Christian morals within our community and society.
To express the love of Christ as a caring community to those in need.
