Burlington Baptist Church:
Who We Are:
A Summary of our Beliefs
Service 10:30 a.m.
2225 New Street, Burlington, ON
Rev. Dave Ogilvie became our Minister in August of 2017. His family includes his wife, Kim, and their children -
Dave has lived in five different Canadian provinces, serving as a Baptist pastor in cities and rural communities across the country. Along the way, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Lethbridge, a Master of Divinity degree from McMaster University, and a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Prince Edward Island.
Being Baptist is important to Dave, but his view of faith is much broader than his own tradition. Wherever he has served as a minister, Dave has been involved ecumenically with clergy and leaders from other Christian denominations, and has worked cooperatively with members of other faith traditions. His commitment is to building inclusive, healthy and engaged communities of faith whose members are dedicated to welcoming and affirming everyone, to supporting one another and to working for peace and justice throughout the world.
When he’s not actively engaged with his church family, Dave can often be found kayaking, cycling, and enjoying the great outdoors with family and friends.
BBC has the unique distinction of being the first Canadian church to be accepted into the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists (AWAB) membership.
We are a welcoming, affirming and inclusive church

Statement of Inclusion
Burlington Baptist Church is an open and affirming community of faith, welcoming everyone, as people created in the image of God, to participate fully in the life of our church family -
The class begins Tuesday, January 14 from 2.00pn to 4.00pm in the Upper Room for 12 weeks. In the winter semester, the Adult Class has chosen to study another of The Great Courses – The World of Biblical Israel. The course is taught by Dr. Cynthia Chapman, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences.
This course traces the history of biblical Israel from its origins in the central highland villages just west of the Jordan River (1200 BCE) to its emergence as a nation, and, then, a pair of kingdoms. It examines the impact of political and military domination by the successive empires of Assyria and Babylonia that resulted in the disappearance of the northern kingdom of Israel and the exile of the southern kingdom of Judah to Babylonia. The catastrophic experience of the exile served as the impetus for compiling, editing, and preserving scripture. -
