The Canadian Baptist journey in mission over 150 years is a testament of partnership and mutual support. Since 1874, Canadian Baptists have worked together in God’s mission to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to a broken world. In response to His love and grace, we have sought to be a faithful presence and witness to hope and healing through word and deed.

We invite you to journey with us as we embark on the next 150 years. Here, we’ll examine each month’s inspired words with insights that will take you further into our shared Baptist identity. Through podcasts, articles, resources, and more, we’ll dive deep into what has shaped us in our mission as Canadian Baptists.

These reflections from 14 thought-leaders around the world, who have accompanied us along the journey, can be incorporated into devotions, church services, or prayer and discussions. You can share your own thoughts using our interactive tools as we Reflect Light on our past and explore all the possibilities of our future as Christ leads us.

CBM’s commitment to theological depth, moral vision, and thoughtfulness is a defining characteristic of our organization. We strive to captivate and inspire people as we incorporate this into everything we do. We seek to provide a theologically rich foundation for our efforts, particularly as we tackle issues and challenges of our modern society. As we continue on this path, we cherish the key themes that define our organization and strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.

CBM celebrates 150 years of local and global mission next year. Many staff and volunteers have come and gone in that time, and we honour the legacy each have contributed to fulfilling God’s call. What began as a commitment to formally train leaders for local ministry branched out to community development in what was known as The Sharing Way. Over time, our response and reach developed into our five key causes addressing issues of Poverty, Justice, Kids at Risk, as well as to Build the Church and enact effective Crisis Response.⁠
Of our current staff, Darrell and Laura Lee Bustin are CBM’s longest continuously serving Global Field Staff with 21 years of uninterrupted service.⁠

Presence. Presence in the margins. Presence in the mainstream. Presence as comfort. Presence as challenge. Presence through weeping. Presence through anger. Presence in low places. Presence in high places. Presence everywhere. Presence as Jesus. The absence of absence.⁠

Dr. Accad was born in Lebanon and lived through the 15 year-long civil war (1975-1990). He is a strong proponent of peacemaking and justice initiatives having spoken as a lecturer and organizational leader in these contexts including an online course with The Bethlehem Institute of Peace and Justice. After completing his PhD at the University of Oxford, he returned to Lebanon in 2001. He is the Chief Academic Officer at ABTS and the Associate Professor of Islamic Studies at both ABTS and Fuller Theological Seminary. He is also the director of the Action Research Associates. He has published several works including articles and a book. As director of ABTS’ Institute of Middle East Studies in Lebanon, he noted that his life purpose is to “bring about positive transformation in thinking and practice between Christians and Muslims in the Middle East and beyond.”⁠
the Church’s presence, then, is to reach out to those who have been broken by loss. This moment in history is a great test of the Church. Will we act in the confidence of Christ’s comprehensive redemption of the world?

Why does it seem that the poor are important to God? If God’s mission is to save humanity by forgiving their sin and rebellion through Jesus Christ, why is there so much in the Bible about compassion and care of the poor, the broken, and those who live in the margins of society? ⁠
Are they just ethical teachings and commands that should define society whenever possible, or is compassion fundamental to the Christian faith? Why is God so concerned about a broken world?⁠
