About Gospel Light Baptist Church

Gospel Light Baptist Church is an ethnically-diverse congregation, a very "international" church!  We embrace the diversity in our community, and we love all people - no matter what language they speak or what country they come from.  On a regular basis, we have many different people groups attend our church - Canadian, Filipino, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Nigerian, Spanish, European, Jamaican, and many, many more!

Gospel Light is an independent Baptist church - "independent" simply meaning that we are not under any denominational headquarters.  Our headquarters are in Heaven.  The head of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ, not the pastor or the Pope or any other denominational or religious leader.  Our pastor provides spiritual oversight and leadership as he seeks to follow Christ and the Word of God.

Gospel Light believes in "the fundamentals of the faith" - such as the deity of Christ, the virgin birth of Christ, the blood atonement of Christ, and so on.  The old King James Version Bible is the only English Bible that our pastor preaches and teaches from.  We believe in the divine inspiration and preservation of the scriptures.  The Bible is our final 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.

Gospel Light Baptist Church is located in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto, Ontario.  Our church is easily accessible by public transit from anywhere in Toronto or York Region.  We currently meet at Richland Academy, a private school located at 11570 Yonge Street, just north of Gamble Road, immediately beside the Lexus car dealership.  There is a YRT and Viva bus stop just a minute's walk from Richland Academy, where we meet on Sundays.

Some estimate that there are over 30,000 independent Baptist churches around the world.  Our church supports many independent Baptist missionaries that are evangelizing the lost, starting new churches, training people for ministry, caring for orphans, and doing God's work all around the world.
