Our History

Realizing the need for sound biblical training in Canada, Dr. Robert D. Kirkland and Dr. James O. Phillips and their associates founded the FaithWay Baptist College of Canada in 1983. The college is an inseparable part of FaithWay Baptist Church in Ajax, Ontario. Dr. Robert Kirkland served as the founder for the opening of the college, and Dr. James O. Phillips served as president. Dr. Phillips went home to be with the Lord on July 12, 1984. Dr. Kirkland assumed the position of president at that time. Dr. Gregory O. Baker served as college president from May 1987 to June 2009.

The church and college facilities are situated just east of metropolitan Toronto in the town of Ajax. A modern facility houses student dormitories, classrooms, gym and cafeteria, library, offices, student centre, and laundry room.

Pastor Robert Wall

FaithWay Baptist College of Canada is a great place to prepare to serve the Lord. Since 1983, students have been trained to love God and honour Him by obeying the Great Commission. These are exciting days to live for Christ, but the challenges are many. We must be equipped to impact this generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is not a time for compromise, casual living, or comfortable Christianity. We must maintain our Baptist distinctives. We must adhere to our fundamental position. We must live above the superficial attitude that is so pervasive in the church today.

The task of training servants for world evangelism and church planting is our goal for the twenty-first century. Our faculty is committed to educating and assisting you to be prepared to do your part in God’s Great Commission.

I ask you to consider prayerfully FaithWay Baptist College of Canada. As you view this web-site, open your heart to the Lord’s leading. Come and prepare for Christian service within the framework of a vibrant local church college. Let us know how we might serve you!

Looking to the future

A site-plan is in place to continually enhance the campus as God enables the college. FaithWay Baptist College of Canada has matriculated students from across Canada, the United States, and a few other countries. Graduates are now serving the Lord in a variety of ministries across Canada, the United States of America, and other foreign mission fields.
