Core Values


First Baptist Church Halifax is a community of Christian faith rooted in the Baptist Tradition. As a community of believers, we value:

  • worship as a central activity and responsibility of the church; including all of our activities and ministries and finding its common expression in our weekly service,
  • openness that follows Christ’s example of inclusion rather than exclusion,
  • caring for each other in our church and others in our community and beyond; seeking to be a truly compassionate, nurturing church family,
  • education teaching Christianity and developing spiritual growth for all ages in our church and beyond,
  • evangelism celebrating and proclaiming the gospel to others,
  • ecumenism seeking full Christian unity as followers of God.
