I 146 years and counting at The corner of Pine and Third! Thank you for visiting.
Our Vision: To live by Faith; To be known by Our Love; To be a Voice of Hope.
Our prayer is that you will be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. We are a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process, grow together. May God richly bless you!
Thought for the Week “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”---Soren Kierkegaard

LIFE EXPLORED SERIES UNDERWAY AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH LIFE EXPLORED is a seven-part series aimed at helping people uncover what they're really living for and to see how in Christ, God meets their deepest desires for happiness. It is an exciting new way for us to share the Gospel in today's highly-visual culture, and consists of seven interactive sessions based on stunning films shot all over the world. It is perfect for anyone looking for answers to life's big questions. Each session features two films, two Bible readings, and one Bible study: the first film is a ten-minute story piece (with no dialogue or narrative), intended to gently and thoughtfully raise the session’s theme. The quality of these films is second to none; each story is beautifully and elaborately shot, ranging from the dramatic account of a prospector risking his life in the Californian gold rush, to an emotional snapshot of a geisha and her family in Edo-period Japan. The series runs every Tuesday at 2 pm and is conducted by Pastor Paul Wilkes. The series is free and open to everyone, but you are asked to register by e-mailing us at fbcollingwood.
First Baptist Church: where you're a stranger only once.
The family at First Baptist Church in Collingwood extends a warm welcome to everyone to join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 at 160 Pine Street. Pastor Paul Wilkes is our spiritual leader and has brought a renewed spirit of peace, joy and love to us and is leading us to focus our energies on increasing our outreach into our community.
In past months, First Baptist has provided both financial and spiritual support to a variety of groups and organizations as part of our mission, and in the months ahead, we will be presenting more musical concerts and special events.
We are also proud to have celebrated our 145th Anniversary last September 23 as we looked back to the founding members of First Baptist who held their first organizational meeting in a stable. : Each week, Pastor Paul brings us messages filled with Bible teachings, wisdom and practical life skills, and we are blessed as from time to time, he shows us his musical skills at the piano, the organ and his trusty accordion.
