About Gospel Light Baptist Church

Gospel Light Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church located in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto, Ontario.  Our church is accessible from anywhere in Toronto or York Region.  We currently meet at Richland Academy on Yonge Street just north of Gamble Road beside the Lexus car dealership. 

There are over 30,000 independent Baptist churches around the world. 
The head of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ, not the Pope or any other denominational or religious leader.  The Bible is our authority for faith and practice.  The Word of God is our pattern as we seek to truly be a Biblical, God-honouring, Christ-centred church.

Our Vision

We believe that the ministry of Gospel Light Baptist Church is vitally important to our local community, to the people of Richmond Hill, and even to all those in the Greater Toronto Area.  We want to make a difference in people's lives. 

By God's grace, couples are discovering it's still possible to have a happy, wonderful, and lasting marriage!  Husbands, wives, and parents are learning to give the time, love, attention, forgiveness, and words of praise that our families need.  Our youth are being taught respect for authority, honesty, hard work, moral values, and responsibility.  Children are learning to honour and obey their parents.  (Our homes are NOT perfect, but I believe they are happy homes!  And don't expect our kids to be perfect, but they are becoming good kids that Mom and Dan can be very proud of.)

Our ministry is focused on encouraging Christians to learn God's Word (the Bible), to grow in our love for Him, to mature in our faith, to joyfully live for God each day, and to show His love to others.  We want to help people build better lives and stronger homes and families.

We want to shine a beacon of hope in an often troubled and confusing world.  The preaching of God's Word can help us in every area of our life.  We believe that the Bible is relevant in this generation and that obedience to the Word of God is the key to being a good success in life. 

Our goal is to perhaps some day start a private Christian school where our children can receive a quality God-honouring education in a safe environment.  We also support homeschooling families.  A number of families in our church currently homeschool their children and some families send their kids to other Christian schools in the area.

There's something for everyone at Gospel Light Baptist Church!  Our church services and regular activities give people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds a place to make friends with other Christians.  The ministries of the church offer singles, families, and seniors an opportunity to serve the Lord together.

Most importantly, we believe that a person's life can become awesome and amazing through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  We teach people from the Bible how they can have assurance of salvation and know for sure that they will go to Heaven one day. 

Through church "in-reach" ministries, personal outreach ministries, and a strong faith-promise world missions program, we can impact the Greater Toronto Area and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
