Olde Tyme Baptist Church

About Our Church

Our Purpose
Olde Tyme Baptist Church is united behind a biblical purpose! Jesus said to His followers: “…All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:18–20). This last command of Christ is our highest priority; every facet of church activity, in some way, relates to our biblical purpose.
Just as the New Testament church in the book of Acts was focused on making disciples, so are we! Acts 5:42 records of the Jerusalem church: “…daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” This young church was constantly engaged in communicating the gospel and helping people become devoted followers of Jesus.
At Olde Tyme Baptist Church, we have emphasized this purpose in our three-point mission statement:

Loving God
Loving God begins in the heart, with a personal relationship with Him. As we gather and participate in Christ-honoring worship services and respond to the preaching of God’s Word, this love flourishes. Mark 12:30 says, “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”

Growing Together
We grow together through the Word and through Godly relationships. These relationships are built through the fellowship we enjoy as Christians. The Word is the truth of the Bible as it’s taught in services, smaller groups, and one-on-one discipleship.

Serving Others
We serve others as we find a place of ministry in the local body. We also serve by sharing the Gospel with those who need the Lord—through witnessing to friends, coworkers, neighbors, and loved ones, as well as in participating in church outreach and giving to missions.

As a church, our mission is to reach the world with the Gospel of Christ. We want to utilize every available biblical means, and we want to disciple and train every member to participate in accomplishing our church’s purpose.

Our Story
Located in the North East part of Calgary, The Olde Tyme Baptist Church is a Fundamental Independent Baptist Church with two main purposes for our existence. First, we want to see souls come to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Second, we want to help Christians grow in grace and knowledge.

Olde Tyme Baptist Church has been blessed since its beginning in 1999 Our auditorium was reconfigured four times to handle the growth. We are excited to announce we have moved to our new location at 1935 McKnight Blvd. NE.

Our Sunday morning services provide worship for all ages, including the nursery. Then, our Sunday evening service is what we call our Family Service. Our Mid-week service on Thursday is our more relaxed Bible Study and allows for some interaction and questions. Our church is a bit smaller in size, but large enough to provide Spiritual guidance for all people. We know you will feel welcome on your first visit to The Olde Tyme Baptist Church.
