Learn about our history ...


For more than 130+ years, Ossington has been a bible-centered baptist church in the Ossington and Bloor community of Toronto. As Christ followers, we seek authentic ways to live out and share our faith and change the world around us.

Our Beliefs

At Ossington Baptist, we want everything about us to declare that Jesus Christ is more desirable than all the pleasures of this world.


We urge one another to engage in weekly worship services, connect through small groups, and find places in which to serve one another, our community, and our world.


Our Mission

Ossington is a community of faithful and passionate followers of Jesus Christ, living out God’s mission of transforming grace and sharing God’s message of unconditional love in our community and around the world, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Our Beliefs

Whatever stage you are at in your faith journey, there is always a next step. Below we share a few key words for you to research and discover more about the Christian faith.

The Bible

Deuteronomy 4:1-2;

Psalm 119:11, 89;

Isaiah 40:8;

Matthew 22:29;

John 5:39; 16:13-15; Romans 15:4; 

2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25;

2 Peter 3:16;

The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.


Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; Matthew 1:21;

Luke 1:68-69;

John 1:12; 3:16, 36; Acts 2:21; 4:12;

Romans 1:16-18;

1 Corinthians 1:18

2 Corinthians 5:17-Galatians 2:20; 3:13 Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13;

Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20;

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.

The Church

Matthew 16:18-19; Acts 2:41-47;

1 Corinthians 7:17; Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18;

1 Timothy 4:14;

1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3;

The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
