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. He is the father of three grown daughters and four growing grandchildren, all of whom make him very proud.
Dave likes to say he was “raised by nomads” because his family moved frequently. By the time he finished high school in Ancaster, Dave had lived in eight different Southern Ontario communities. As an adult, he has honored the nomadic tradition of his parents, living in five different Canadian provinces and serving as a Baptist pastor in each of those provinces. 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 UPEI.
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, as well as working cooperatively with members of other faith traditions. His commitment is to building healthy and engaged communities of faith whose members are dedicated to supporting one another and to working for peace and justice throughout the world.

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. -
