147 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
“The goal of our lives should be nothing less that becoming so familiar with the "mind of Christ" that we could write Jesus' speeches.”― Clare De Graaf
SPECIAL COVID-19 ADVISORY!!!!!
Due to the re-imposition of strict guidelines announced by the Government of Ontario December 21, all services at First Baptist Church are postponed until further notice. We are sorry that circumstances have led us to this decision, but we know God wants us to stay healthy and strong for what troubles may lie ahead. The family at First Baptist Church extends to everyone our sincerest wishes for a safe and joyous Christmas and a COVID-19-free New Year.
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, Pastor Paul Wilkes has been posting our services and messages on line as listed below. Now that we have closed temporarily, he is posting a series of Music and Meditation programs for us all to enjoy.
December 24: Our Christmas Eve service---Lessons and Carols---can be found at each of the links below and was presented by Pastor Paul Wilkes, who plays piano and reads from the Scriptures. The service is two parts, due to a temporary loss of Internet:
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.
Each year, First Baptist provides both financial and spiritual support to a variety of groups and organizations as part of our mission.
We are also proud to have celebrated our 147th Anniversary last September 27 as we looked back to the founding members of First Baptist who held their first organizational meeting in a stable.
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.
DID YOU KNOW? We are wheelchair accessible and can provide the latest in hearing-assisted devices. Just ask one of our ushers.
