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.
