Our History

In 2016 Faith Baptist Church celebrated 60 years of ministry in Oakville!

With humble roots beginning in the late 1930s when a small group began to meet for prayer and Bible study in a private home (and later rented space at the SE corner of Lakeshore Road and Navy Street and the Oakville Masonic Temple) FBC began as "The Oakville Gospel Centre" and "Calvary Baptist Church". Once meeting in the Old Turner Chapel at Wilson Street and Lakeshore Road and then establishing a branch Sunday School in the old, one-room, Pineview schoolhouse (pictured) on Sixth Line, Faith's roots have grown throughout Oakville. It has shared ancestry with the Winnett Memorial Baptist Church (now Chartwell Baptist Church) out of congregational interest that both North Oakville and South East Oakville be ministered to, and now bids welcome, from the growing hub of the Upper Oakville, Trafalgar corridor.
