Canadian Baptist Ministries

Connection to Canadian Foodgrains Bank

When you give, your contribution can be credited to the Canadian Baptist Ministries account. Canadian Baptist Ministries decides how those funds, and any CIDA matching funds, will be used.

Canadian Baptist Ministries receives requests for food from its overseas partners. Each request is reviewed to ensure the food and support provided will improve the lives of the people receiving the assistance – in both the short and long terms.

Once planning is complete (including details to ensure safe and reliable delivery), Canadian Foodgrains Bank arranges the purchase and shipping of the food. Canadian Baptist Ministries often works together with other Foodgrains Bank church members on shipments.

Canadian Baptist Ministries has been a member of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank since 1983.

History

Canadian Baptist Ministries is a global mission organization committed to sharing God’s love through word and deed.  CBM believes that God brings healing to a broken world through local churches. CBM is also a federation of four regional Baptist denominations, serving the churches of Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec, l’Union d’Eglises Baptistes Francophones du Canada, and The Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches.  CBM serves as the international mission agency and national federating body for these churches and denominations.

Baptists emerged historically out of the Reformation with a desire to follow New Testament teaching, believing that every area in the believer’s life and the life of the church is to be subject to God.  Baptists believe that hope for the individual, the nation, and the world is found in Jesus Christ. They share many beliefs in common with other Christians including belief in one God, the human and divine nature of Jesus Christ, and the significance of his crucifixion and resurrection for salvation.

The Canadian Baptist family consists of 100,000 baptized members working together through 1,000 local churches across Canada.
