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. 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!
