The CABF was formerly known as the Atlantic Baptist Fellowship for more than 40 years. Because of the great affection for the ABF, many will continue to refer to it as that. The ABF was formed in 1971 by members of the United Baptist Convention of the Atlantic Provinces, who wanted to witness to historic Baptist principles of freedom and to continue involvement with non-Baptist communions in joint worship, social action and ecumenical discussions.
