Church Planting

A Small Church Planting Churches

As God has continued to bless FBC, he has given us a passion to expand our impact on our community through planting new churches.  We believe that starting new churches in communities that need them will enable us to share the hope of the Gospel with even more of our neighbours.  We are currently planting Baden Central Church in Baden, ON.

Why Plant in Baden?

Our Reasons for Planting

In the great commission, Jesus instructed his followers to go and make disciples.  To reproduce themselves by passing along the incredible message of hope they had received from Jesus.  This is why we believe that evangelism is such an important ministry in the local church, and at its core, church planting is a ministry of evangelism.  The goal of church planting is to reach new communities that need to hear the Gospel, and slowly begin to establish a new church community as people come to know Christ.
FBC has always been passionate about sharing the hope of the Gospel with our community, and as God has blessed us, we have begun to look at other nearby communities that need the Gospel as well.  The town of Baden, while being so close to New Hamburg, is the perfect community to establish a new church.  It is a town of 6,000 people, set to double in size in the next ten years, and it is a community full of people who need to know Christ.  After much prayer and consideration, we feel that God has called us to plant a new church in Baden.

Our Planters: Nathan & Elaine Kapteyn

Pastor Nathan and his wife Elaine were married in August 2020 and from the beginning of their relationship they both had a passion to serve the Lord together in the local church.
       They have a heart for small town ministry and since getting married God has led them on an amazing journey towards church planting. They both have a special love for the Wilmot area and are so thankful and excited to be planting a new church in Baden.
