Faith Baptist Chapel
Faith Baptist Chapel began as Faith Bible Chapel in 1974 on Cumberland St. in what is considered “Old Town” Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The church’s name was changed to Faith Baptist Chapel in 1983 and the church became affiliated with the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada in 1986 (www.fellowship.ca). There are 500 churches in this Fellowship of Churches across the Dominion of Canada.
The congregation met for 16 years in an older building on Cumberland Street in the Town of Lunenburg. In 1981 the idea to build a new church was encouraged by a former Pastor, W. James Hicks, a former missionary to South Africa, along with his wife Evelyn. The church bought land in 1988 just outside the town limits in Centre, situated on Highway #3, which runs between Lunenburg and the Town of Bridgewater. The new Faith Baptist Chapel building was completed in the Fall of 1990.
The numerical growth at the Chapel has been encouraging over the years to the point where expansion of the facility is needed to meet the needs and challenges of this diverse congregation and the needs of the community.
What to Expect
Faith Baptist Chapel is a family. We hope you will feel at home and experience the love of Jesus Christ as you worship with us.
Each service will begin with uplifting, spiritual singing, followed by Pastor Steve bringing a simple, practical message from God’s Word.
We are a growing community Church located in Center, just outside the well known World-wide ‘unesco’ town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia; with a great group of believers; who serve our local area and beyond.
Our goal is to glorify God and our hope is that you will experience the deep and lasting love of Jesus when you attend our worship services.
We desire that all people come to know Christ in an intimate relationship and our desire for them to grow in healthy spiritual maturity, in Him. Come and be a part of an exciting opportunity for worship, study, and service; each week.
We believe in the divine inspiration of Scripture, the Bible is the final authority and that man must trust Christ as his Saviour if he wants to have his sins forgiven and if he wants to go to Heaven.
Please check out what we believe and teach; and we know that you will find our church to be a warm and friendly place you will want to invite your family and friends too.
Upward in worship and prayer
Outward in evangelism and missions
Inward in discipleship and fellowship
We are motivated by the belief that God’s Word is sufficient, and that people who follow its life-changing message can bring glory to God. We rejoice in the message of the cross—that people can be forgiven through the blood of Christ and restored to a personal relationship with God.
Faith Baptist Chapel is a family of followers of Jesus Christ who desire to honor God by applying His sufficient Word to all areas of life and ministry. We seek to do this by growing stronger, reaching out, serving together, meeting needs, and strengthening others.
