Our Church Family
The people of Huron Baptist gather regularly all seeking to worship God and learn more about the message He's given us in that ancient, holy book the Bible. We are all seekers, trying to grow closer to Him, trying to use the gifts God has given us to serve the church and to help others, treating them as we'd like to be treated. We're also very friendly and always looking forward to meeting new people. We hope you'll be one of them.
Huron Baptist Church is part of the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist group of churches which is Canada-wide, and in particular are part of the denomination FEB Central.
A Brief History
Huron Baptist Church was formed in 1973 under the leadership of Rev. Ray Holley. Pastor Holley, prior to this, had been interim Pastor at Temple Baptist Church. It was at this time that several of the people at Temple expressed a need for a new church in the North end of Sarnia. The challenge of starting a new church was presented to the Deacons and ultimately the people of Temple. The Church responded favourably and about 37 members voluntarily transferred their membership to the new work.
On April 17, 1973, the first service of Huron Baptist Church was held in Errol Road School. The church continued to hold services in the school until 1975, when the present building was erected.
On May 23, 1973, an Organizational Meeting was held to constitute a Baptist Church with 50 Charter Members. First Communion service was held on June 3rd.
On January 1st, 1990 Dave Benn became Pastor of Huron Baptist Church and is still to this day.
