Welcome!

Welcome to Kipling Avenue Baptist Church! Our congregation is multi-cultural in complexity, with 24 various ethnic groups attending our church.  We are also multi-generational, with ministries for our senior members down to grade school kids. 

Our church is located in a peaceful community in North Etobicoke.  We have a moderate-sized building that can accommodate 250 worshippers, with facilities for toddlers, grade schoolers, youth, seniors, and a Spanish congregation.

I wish you could come and visit us personally.  Our church is very warm and friendly.  I’m sure you will enjoy the fellowship of our people coming from 24 nations.

Shalom,

Rev. Kevin Smith

What We Believe

  • We believe in one God who exists in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Father sent Jesus into the world to restore us to a perfect relationship with Him. He reveals Himself to man, through the Bible by His Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He came into the world, took our sins upon Himself and was crucified. He was buried, raised from the dead after three days and ascended to His place of authority at the right hand of the Father. At an unknown time in the future, Christ shall return to gather all those who have put their faith in Him.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is given for the indwelling, strengthening, comforting, teaching, and equipping of God’s children for service in His Kingdom.
  • We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, inspired by His Holy Spirit. As the Word of God, it should be taken as the supreme standard in matters of faith and conduct.
  • We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God for communion with Him, but the man and the woman sinned and severed their relationship with God. All men and women, therefore, stand in need of salvation, through Christ, in order to restore this broken relationship.
  • We believe that God has appointed a day, wherein He will judge the world by Jesus Christ. On that day everyone shall receive according to his deeds: the wicked shall go into everlasting punishment; the righteous, into everlasting life.
  • We believe that Christ’s great command is to show love to all mankind by sharing our possessions, to meet their needs, and by teaching them the things found in the Word of God – especially the Good News about Christ’s great sacrifice for the sins of the world.
  • We believe in the observance of the ordinances of communion and believer’s baptism by immersion following the Lord’s example.

Note: We support the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec document entitled, “This We Believe: Resources for Faith.” (1987)
