About Rosedale

Rosedale Baptist Church has been a vibrant Evangelical presence in Welland since 1918.  Originally located at the corner of East Main and Scholfield, Rosedale became an autonomous congregation in 1938, outgrew the original building and moved to its current location in 1969.  We are a member congregation of the Canadian Fellowship of Evangelical Baptists, a network of churches which spans the country from coast to coast.


Rosedale is home to a growing family which is committed to the unchanging gospel of Jesus Christ and looks to the Bible as our final authority.  God’s Word teaches that we were created by the Triune God to glorify Him and to enjoy Him forever.  Tragically, each one of us have fallen short of God’s perfect standard and our sin separates us from a perfectly holy God.  The Bible reveals God’s wonderful plan to bring us back into relationship with Him through the death and resurrection of Jesus, His only Son, who willingly died in our place for the sins of every believer.   We begin an exciting new life with God the moment we put our faith in Jesus, repent of our sin and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  It is in the context of a local group of believers, called the ‘Church’ that this new life in Christ is lived out.
