New season 2020
Due to the current situation of Covid-19 Ohsweken Baptist Church is currently closed for Sunday services until further notice. We want to continue to pray for the community and the world, That the will of the Lord will be done.
As we welcome the new year! We look forward to Gods provision and wisdom through out the year 2020 through the ministry and pastoral care that is given. “Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. so then as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. ~ Galatians 6: 9-10 ~
Are hope is to build relationships and community through the connection we build through the ministry and volunteers we have in practical ways by humbling serving the needs of the community.
A Short History of Ohsweken Baptist Church. During the period of 1799-1804, The New York Missionary Society, represented by Reverend Holmes, corresponded several times with Joseph Brant at Brant's Ford, now the city of Brantford. Holmes sent several sermons and the Aims of the Baptist faith. No reply ever came from the Haudenosaunee Chief, but, the Baptists never gave up. Approximately thirty years of persistence and hope took shape in the form of summertime tent revival meetings, and house gatherings in the winter. This, all under the devoted leadership of two Baptist missionaries, elder John Minor and William Landon. The historical setting puts us in the this time period, twenty years after the War of 1812, and twenty years before the American Civil War. At the same time Canada was fighting her own internal war over the untamed northwest frontier, The Hudson's Bay Company versus The Northwest Fur Company. Back at the reserve, this same year also saw the faithful missionaries rewarded with permission from the Six Nations Council to build a church. Facing major opposition from The Church of England(Anglican), they broke ground in 1841, and The Tuscarora Baptist Church of The Six Nations became a reality. In 1964, the congregation moved to their new location on Fourth Line and changed the name to Ohsweken Baptist Church. Today the fellowship celebrates 180 years.
