Welcome to the Canadian Association for Baptist Freedoms!

We seek to be a safe and welcoming environment in which Baptists can share all concerns and points of view without fear of being marginalised.

The CABF is a Canada-wide fellowship composed of both individuals and Churches. Currently, our member Churches are located in Nova Scotia and Ontario, but we are open to receiving new members from any province or territory - click here for details.

Sincere Sympathy

We have received word of two deaths in our extended CABF family.

Boren, D-Okla. Stan and Bettie first became associated with the ABF/CABF in the early 1990s when he was the first Executive Director of the Alliance of Baptists. They last visited us when we met in Amherst in 2009. The picture of Stan and Bettie was taken at that occasion. We offer our love snd sympathy to Stan and family in their loss.

Dr. Ray Hobbs of Hamilton, ON, a retired professor of Old Testament at McMaster Divinity College, died on November 6th.
