First Baptist was founded in 1827 as the Granville Street Baptist Church (renamed First Baptist Church in 1886) and is a member of the Halifax Region United Baptist Association as well as the Canadian Association for Baptist Freedoms (formerly the Atlantic Baptist Fellowship). We are intentionally ecumenical and inclusive in our services (Sundays at 10:30 a.m.) and programs.

As Baptists we follow the four fragile freedoms described by Dr. Walter Shurdan in his book, The Baptist Identity; Four Fragile Freedoms.

We wish to get to know you better and for you to meet our Clergy/Staff, and Lay Leaders. We are located at 1300 Oxford Street. You can be added to our mailing list or ask for the weekly News Notes – just contact us with your information!
