A little about us:

Our church was formed on June 26, 1949 when 16 young Baptist refugees from Estonia decided to join together and establish a local Estonian speaking church. At first the church was affiliated with the earlier founded New York Estonian church, but a year later the Estonian Baptist Church of Toronto was officially recognized as an independent church belonging to the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec. Largely due to immigration to Canada the church grew quickly. Our own church building was completed in 1963 and by 1972 the congregation had grown to 372 members. The younger generation started blending into the local culture and so also the church became bilingual to some extent. Through the years, many of our young people have gone to serve in Canadian churches and are still continuing to do so. Our church has continued our ministry in two languages – but still as one community - giving everyone an opportunity to communicate in a way that is most comfortable. We are involved in our local Estonian community life and have also built meaningful connections with the Estonian Baptist Convention in Estonia after Estonia reclaimed its independence in August of 1991. All our times are in God’s hands and by His grace we’ve been blessed to carry on God’s work here for almost 70 years. We are starting to get ready to celebrate that significant milestone next year – come join us!

Natuke sellest, kes oleme:

Kogudus moodustus 26. juunil 1949, mil 16 kodumaalt põgenenud baptisti otsustasid koonduda kohalikuks eestikeelseks koguduseks. Esialgu tegutseti New Yorgi Eesti Koguduse osakonnana, kuni aasta hiljem astuti Ontario ja Quebeci Baptisti Liitu Toronto Eesti Baptisti Kogudusena. Immigratsiooni tulemusel kasvas kogudus järgnevail aastail kiiresti. Oma kirik valmis 1963. aastal ja 1972. aastaks oli koguduse liikmeid 372. Sealt algas noore põlvkonna sulandumine kohalikku kultuuriruumi ja kogudus muutus kakskeelseks. Koguduse keskelt on välja kasvanud mitmed Kanada kirikutes tegutsenud ja tegutsevad töötegijad. Oleme jätkanud kakskeelsena, mis tähendab igale liikmele eesõigust suhelda talle sobivas keeles. Jumalateenistutel on pidev sünkroontõlge inglise keelde. Vastupidist tõlget ei ole enam ammu vaja. Kogudus jätkab aktiivset tööd oma kogukonnas. Kuulume jätkuvalt Ontario ja Quebeci Baptistiliitu ja oleme teinud ka märkimisväärset koostööd Eesti taasvabanemise järel Eesti Baptistiliiduga. Etnilise kallakuga kogudusena oleme tohtinud tegutseda ligi 70 aastat. Läheme vastu suurele juubelile ja ka muutustele. Jumala käes on kõik meie ajad. Ootame Sind!
