St. John The Baptist Community Church is an evangelical “fresh expressions” family church serving the local community of Richmond Hill and York.
It really doesn’t matter who you are or where you’ve been, you are sincerely welcome here. Jesus spent time with and hung out with all kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds and we are called to do the same.
What we Believe
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin conception, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly, transformed, powerful and fulfilling life.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead; those who accepted Jesus’ invitation to follow Him as their Lord receive the gift of eternal life with God; but those who refused Jesus’ invitation will spend eternity away from Him.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that we have been commissioned by Jesus to make disciples, people who follow Jesus as Lord, who in turn make disciples.
