Our Vision

TCBC stands for Toronto Chinese Baptist Church. In 1967, a small group started a Cantonese speaking congregation with the blessing of the congregation of Beverley St. Baptist Church. We’ve kept the name through our expansion into Children, English and Mandarin ministries. Today we have 3 separate worship services and supporting children’s and youth ministries.

Our vision for TCBC is more about Trust in Jesus, Connecting with Others, Building Faith, and Caring for our Community. That’s who we. Or more precisely, that’s who we try to be. We are a church that strives to be a community committed to worshiping the Triune God: Creator, Redeemer & Sustainer, the God revealed in the Bible and most clearly in Jesus Christ.

When the church gathers, as a congregation or in smaller groups, our goal is to grow together in our understanding of faith, serve the local community in the name of Jesus and enjoy the friendship and fellowship of others as we journey through life together.

We believe in the value of partnerships and of interdenominational cooperation. TCBC is a member of the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec and is in partnership with Toronto Baptist Ministries.

We welcome you to our community and invite you to get involved in the ministries that happen here throughout the week and on Sundays.

a. Trust 
“My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” (Mark 11:17, NIV) No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, our mission is to be a welcoming place for you to experience the Grace of Jesus Christ, the Love of God and the Presence of God’s Holy Spirit in your life.

b. Connect
“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” (Proverbs 27:17—New Living Translation) On Sundays you will find those who attend coming from a variety of backgrounds. Some are still seeking answers, some are new to the Toronto area, some are returning to church after an absence, many are students, and some are long-time members of our local church. Our mission is to be a place where people can connect.

c. Build
Our mission is to help spiritually-searching people grow in a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. We promote Christian educations through classes taught by members. Regardless of who is teaching, our mission is to build people up through clear, insightful, thought-provoking, sometimes humourous and always relevant wisdom from the Scriptures.

d. Care
Our mission is to celebrate our faith in God by making a positive difference in people’s lives. As our world changes, our church humbly seeks to dialogue with our communities to discover practical ways we can serve. Our goal is simply to care for our community. Our vision is to be transformed people who gather as a transformed church to effect the positive transformation of the communities we live and work in. Will you join us in serving together?
