From Our Senior Pastor:

Welcome to Ebenezer!

And welcome to our website! We're glad you chose to drop by today.

At Ebenezer, we see ourselves as  regular people who have been called by Jesus to love God and love our neighbours. Our mission is to "win and build passionate, lifelong followers of Jesus Christ."

We belong to the  North American Baptist (NAB) Conference of churches, but we welcome folks of all ages and church backgrounds. We are a diverse, multi-cultural congregation and our building serves as a vibrant community centre for our neighbourhood .

We value communal involvement in every area of church life and this site offers a fair bit of information about what we do together. We invite you to explore it further and if you have any  questions,  to contact me directly through the church office.

But the best way of getting to know our community is to join us for worship at 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning. We'd love to see you there.

Thanks for your visit. We wish you every blessing.

Dr. John Oakes,
Senior Pastor.
