Our History

Rosewood Baptist Church started as a satellite local mission of the North York Chinese Baptist church in April 1979.  Sunday worship service was held at Churchill Heights Baptist church from 1979 to 1985.

In 1985 Sunday worship service was relocated to Malvern Jr. Public School.  The church became independent and incorporated under the name Scarborough h Mission (Chinese) Baptist Church in April 1988.

In 1989, the church had acquired a building and started to hold worship services at 75 Kirkdene Drive, subsequently, Malvern Baptist church was also being planted.  Thanks to the Glory of God, Malvern Baptist Church became independent tin April 1993.

In 1993 September, Cantonese worship service relocated to Sir William Osler High School, start at 10am.  In January of the following year, the first English worship service began.  In1997, November, the church officially joined the Fellowship Evangelical Baptist churches of Canada as a member.

In the September of 1998, the church sold the property at 75 Kirkdene Drive and relocated the church office to Mary Ward Secondary School, at 3447 Kennedy Road.  Again this was a necessary move to adapt to the continuing change in the demographics of the Chinese population.

In January 2000, the church bought the present property located at 28601 McNicoll Avenue and began a new building project.  One year later, in October 2001, the current building was completed.  At the same time, the name of the church was changed from Scarborough Mission (Chinese) Baptist Church to Rosewood Baptist church to identify with the community that we service.

the heart of worship

The Lord Jesus reminds us: "Worship the Lord, your God, and only serve him."  Worship and service goes hand in hand. Only when you have a sincere heart to worship can you truly serve. The English word worship means to attribute to God the honor that God deserves. The Greek text of the Bible contains the meaning of bowing down and kissing the palm of the hand, which means to express one's love, value, appreciation, and humility toward people. Worship is the beginning and foundation of all our ministry. We use it to express our love for God, value His words, appreciate what He has done for us, and come to Him and submit and to obey His guidance and will. May we worship our Lord and God with our hearts and honesty!

序樂是甚麼?

音樂能牽動人的感情和心緒。莊重肅穆的音樂使人沉穩如山,輕快活潑的音樂使人輕飄如雲,舒緩悠揚的音樂使人心靜如水。高昂的音樂能振奮人心。音樂是神給予人類心靈的潤滑劑,可以陶冶人的性情,亦能净化人靈魂的深處,有效地促進神與人之間心對心的交流,是神給予人類神聖的禮物。崇拜開始的前奏音樂叫做「序樂」。普遍是使用鋼琴或者風琴奏出舒緩悠揚的樂曲。目的是安靜我們的心,提醒我們現在是身處至高者的聖殿中,我們應當用虔敬謙卑的心,一齊來敬拜和等待祂給我們的信息。

宣召是甚麼?

「宣」就是「以君王的命令傳召臣僕」。「召」是呼喚的意思,特別指到「由上對下的呼喚」。「宣召」正是至高的主,呼喚祂的子民來到祂面前一齊朝見祂,等待祂的訓誨和差遣。在崇拜的開始,主領人會宣讀一句或一小段的經文,提醒會眾集中心思意念,用心靈和誠實來到主的面前、感謝和慶祝祂的創造和救贖,謙卑聆聽祂的教導,並等候祂的差遣。會眾亦同時作出回應,表示已準備心,一齊來敬拜主。
例如, 主領人會這樣說:「你們和我當稱耶和華為大、一同高舉他的名。」而會眾就回應:「耶和華的名是應當稱頌的,從今時直到永遠!」請大家嘗試用同樣的方式在崇拜中來回應「宣召」。

主禱文是甚麼?

在馬太福音六章9-13節記載主耶穌教導我們怎樣禱告,所以稱為「主禱文」。禱告內容分兩部份。先為世人認識和敬畏神而禱告,亦祈禱神的主權和祂的旨意全面運行在這世界中。然後才為自己的物質需要,罪的赦免、得勝的生活祈禱。主禱文提醒我們神的名、神的主權、神的旨意永遠是優先,我們的需求和慾望是其次。若守住這種神人之間的次序,我們就能過著合神心意的人生。我們按著這種優先次序禱告,就是符合神心意的禱告。每次頌讀主禱文的時候,大家要提醒自己,要以神的優先為我們人生的目標。

崇拜中的禱告 (一)

為什麼禱告在崇拜中那麼重要?

希伯來書4:16節這樣提醒我們:「所以,我們只管坦然無懼地來到施恩的寶座前,為要得憐憫,蒙恩惠,作及時的幫助。」這處經文指出,由於主耶穌基督的犧牲和代贖,我們再毫無阻隔可以同神直接的交往。我們只要用信心、誠實的心、坦然無懼的心來到神的施恩寶座前,神必然接受我們的敬拜,樂意向我們施憐憫,知道我們的需要,喜歡我們得到祂的恩惠,隨時隨地來幫助我們。崇拜的禱告其中一個目的就是要引導我們的心靈來到神的施恩寶座前,享受同祂相見的經歷。

崇拜中的禱告 (二)

集體崇拜中禱告目的何在? 集體崇拜中的禱告首要目的是引導會眾用心靈同誠實去朝拜那位正坐係施恩寶座上的神,提醒會眾去一齊享受同神相遇的經歷。集體崇拜中的禱告另一個目是要幫助會眾將注意力集中在造物主和其屬性上。

那位坐在施恩寶座上的神是一位全知、全能、無所不在、永不改變的造物主;祂是聖潔、智慧、公義、慈愛、信實、常施恩、好憐憫的神;祂是三位一體、宇宙中獨一的真神。所以崇拜中禱告的內容必須以讚美同高舉神的屬性為中心。集體崇拜當中的禱告提醒我們神是配受敬拜同讚美,正如啟示錄4:8-11所說:「聖哉!聖哉!聖哉!主 – 全能的神;昔在、今在、以後永在!我們的主,我們的神,你配得榮耀、尊貴、權柄;因為你創造了萬物,萬物因你的旨意被創造而存在。」

神及时的供应
汤彼得分享 (国语堂)

以赛亚书 5:8-9 「我的意念非同你们的意念,我的道路非同你们的道路。这是耶和华说的。天怎样高过地,照样,我的道路高过你们的道路,我的意念高过你们的意念。」

2002年我从中国去到纽约,开始做点小本生意。 2004年当时国内三个弟妹需要资金买房、办工厂、办医院的。我从2003年到2006年先后借给他们合共人民币150万。两年后,要求他们把借款逐步归还,却徒劳无功,不被理睬。等到7年后才有个别的弟妹开始还款,当中的过程实为难和无奈。惟因他们是自己的亲弟妹,不好告上法院。当时父母都站在弟妺那边,认为我在美国赚钱容易,不应计较,还说我在逼帐,不念亲情,心中感到委屈。
人已迈入中年,想在美国买套房子,也要养儿女,在经济上感到压力,盼早日讨回债款,方便周转。但一直讨债到2018年底,最小的弟弟仍欠我13万人民币,以爱理不理的态度对我,没有一点意向想还钱。每次回国我得给他带礼物,说好话,但都反应。每次都说没钱,为了不想父母的难过,始终不想采取法律途径去解决。
就在2020年的一月,我真心接纳主耶稣为我的救主,成为基督徒。我开始学习祷告,凡事依靠主。教会弟兄姐妹也为我祷告,求主感动弟弟还款。适逢瘟疫猖獗,生意停顿,面对经济压力,实在是雪上加霜。
主耶稣却知道我的需要,听我和众弟兄姊妹祷告。就在10月24日那天,我继续为经济上的需要祷告,求主感动弟弟归还欠款。当时内心出现了一股强烈的感动,深信是来圣灵的感动,催促我:「你去问弟弟要吧?」
其实,我已经有一段长时间不敢再向弟弟讨债,因为实在「怕了」。说实话,过去这些年间,因借款给弟妺三人,及后一直在讨还,心灵有点疲累,亦开始失望。自己在美国做点小生意赚点辛苦钱,归还的钱变值也不要去算计,但自己一家几口都需要开支,太太难免给我一点压力,心中非常抑郁无助。
就在那10月24日晚上,主耶稣清楚给了我指引。我终于拿出勇气,用柔和的语气给弟弟发了一条信息,要求他把钱归还,以便度过难关。没想到,不到两分钟他就回覆,说可以马上把欠款汇给我,实在出乎我意料之外。
早前神在水牛城为我预备了一套价钱便宜的房子,但必须进行装修。弟弟归还钱的时间,不早不迟,正好解决了我修辑房子的需要。如果他早还,可能我把钱化到别处去,修辑的钱就有问题。
还有,感谢主另一个安排,因从国内汇款到美国比较麻烦,但有位很熟悉的本地餐馆当老板的朋友,知道我的需要,主动建议我,叫弟弟把款项直接给其国内的家人,他在这边就兑换美金给我。这样,汇款的烦恼就解决了。
主的意念实在高过人的意念,为我作了周全的安排,实在感谢他其妙恩手的带领。我清楚体会了主確实是我的大牧者,常常施恩和引导我。愿一切荣耀归给主!阿门!

母鸡翅膀下的小鸡
兰兰分享 (国语堂)

马太福音23:37 「..我多次願意聚集你的儿女,好像母鸡把小鸡聚集在翅膀底下,但是你们不愿意…。」

句话是主耶稣昔日对犹太选民的叹息,因为他们忘记自己独特的身份,他们悖逆神,做了许多伤害人,违背神心意的事。神没有因此放弃他们。神不变的意愿就是要他们离罪归向他,成为他真正的儿女,作人类的天父。他乐意用父母的爱去保护凡属于他和亲近他的人。
当我念到这句经文,在脑海里马上浮现出一個感人的画面 ── 「一只母鸡其周围有一群小鸡,在它的翅膀下还路出一只小鸡的头。」我脑子里想起一首常唱的赞美诗:「天父必看顾你,时时看顾,处处看顾,衪必会看顾你,天父必看顾你。」
「母鸡把小鸡聚集在翅膀底下」清楚說明了天父常常看顾他的兒女,不愿意他們感到孤单,不让他们有被遗弃感的感觉。我心中起了一个念头,希望把经文中的意景画下来, 一方面勉励自己,另方面告诉人── 天父爱世上的人,就像母鸡把小鸡聚集在翅膀底下照顧和保護它們。
最近,我左變坐骨神经出現新痛患,感到难受。在我坐下预备绘这画之际,内心有点纠结,担心没法坐太久。但感谢天父的怜爱,竟然由始至终没有感到不舒服。更奇妙的,画划完后, 坐骨之痛础頓然消失了,心里感到天父温馨的大爱。
又记得教会去年举办「平安夜音乐会」,会后教會預備了茶點招待大家,我因为肚子不舒服,没有享用,回到家裡,还出現晕眩、呕吐、流冷汗,面色苍白。我驚怕健康出了大问题,于是呼求天父:「天父救我!天父救我!」好奇妙,不适的病症逐漸舒缓,最后平安无事了。那个平安夜的晚上,我竟然熟睡一觉到天亮,享受了一個甜美和挺长的睡眠,是前所未有的。
还有两次遇上胃痛,也是蒙天父的怜愛,不藥而治。前年,我右邊坐骨神经痛疼难受,雖然经过数月的治疗,化了不少金钱却依然疼痛。結果在弟兄姐妹同心代祷下,终于得以康复。正如主耶穌的應許:「若是你们中间有两个人在地上同心合意地求什么事,我在天上的父必为他们成全。」(马太福音18:19)
感谢天父垂听众人爱心的呼求,看顾了我,也医治了我,就像母鸡把小鸡聚集在翅膀底下照顾保护一样。哈利路亚!
