Role: The role of the Baptist Historical Committee is to collect, sustain and reproduce various historical resources of our Baptist Heritage. The Board also appoints the members of the Baptist Heritage Series Editorial Committee. The members are responsible for deciding on the use of the budget of the committee, responding to issues important to the history of Baptists, encouraging authors and collectors of material and seeking to share enthusiasm for our history with our people.

NEW: The Baptist Historical Committee is proud to announce the Atlantic Baptist Built Heritage Project, an initiative that catalogues historic Baptist church buildings in Atlantic Canada. It includes photographs and historical descriptions of dozens of churches. The BHC plans to expand this resource, and you can help their efforts by submitting data using the form below or on the Built Heritage Project website.
