Welcome to the Jarvis Street Baptist Church
Founded in 1818, Jarvis Street Baptist Church continues to exist, by divine favor, for the praise of God’s name, the salvation of sinners, and the encouragement of believers.
As a multicultural community of believers, we are committed to releasing the Word of God through faithful, Spirit-led exposition of Scripture. And since worship is not about us, but about God, we aspire to exalt our sovereign Lord in simplicity, reverence, and joy. As for our theology, we hold dear the doctrines of Grace and subscribe in principle to the historic Calvinistic Baptist Confessions of Faith. The appended Statement of Faith serves only as a breviary of these beliefs. Besides our passionate devotion to praising His name, truthfully proclaiming His word in worship, and witnessing to the riches of His grace to sinners, we are also devoted to giving Him and ourselves no rest in prayer, imitating the character of our Lord Jesus Christ, and demonstrating the love of Christ in Christian fellowship. Regardless of your age, cultural background, marital or economic status, JSBC welcomes you. If you are not yet a Christian, our church and Bible School workers are men and women who have personally received the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, and are interested in sharing the Gospel message with you. If, on the other hand, you are a believer seeking a home Church or just visiting the city, please join us this Sunday at 11 am or 6:30 pm.
