Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada


Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada

The Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada is an outgrowth of the fundamentalist/modernist controversy in the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec, and a descendant of the "Union of Regular Baptist Churches" formed by a group of mainly fundamentalists in 1928 as a result of the controversy. The Fellowship was formed in 1953 by the merger the "Union of Regular Baptist Churches of Ontario and Quebec" (founded 1927) and the "Fellowship of Independent Baptist Churches" (founded 1933). The FEBCC was later enlarged by two western groups, "The Regular Baptist Missionary Fellowship of Alberta" in 1963 and the "Convention of Regular Baptist Churches of British Columbia" (founded 1927) in 1965.

The "Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches" is engaged in missions to Africa, Central Asia, Europe, Japan, Latin America, the Middle East, Pakistan, & South America, and offers ministry resources, workshops, pension plans, loans, Baptist Builders, etc., to assist the churches. In 2000, the Fellowship included 496 churches with 65,605 members, and now claims to be one of the largest evangelical groups in Canada. There are 70 French language churches among the 496 churches of the Fellowship. The official magazine of the FEBCC, "The Evangelical Baptist", is published five times per year. Headquarters are in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
