A New Look and Logo

A Little Help

We recognize updating to our new logo may be more involved for your church. If your church uses our logo on your church sign or in some other manner that may be costly to update, our board has set aside a small fund to help churches offset these costs if needed. Please contact Melody Currier for more information.

Please note that the deadline to apply to access this fund is December 31, 2017.

Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec are a family of churches, transformed by Christ, revealing God’s kingdom. We are a vibrant community, rooted—but not stuck—in our history. We are diverse in our expressions, meeting in high school gyms, centuries-old buildings, homes and coffee shops. We share common Baptist distinctives, but each of our churches has a unique character and call.

To help better reflect our Baptist identity, over the last couple of years we have embarked on a process of changing our look and feel, but we didn’t do it alone. We asked many of you—Canadian Baptists—for your feedback. What images are important to you? What do you feel best sums up our Baptist identity? What makes us unique? What kind of look and feel appeals to you?

And you told us! With our stakeholder input, we have crafted our new standards, chosen new colours and opted for new fonts so that you know that it’s “us” at first glance. We’ve even launched a new website to help you better engage with our resources. It’s been a long process, and the final step is this: we have launched a new logo.

Like the old logo, we’ve kept our key elements, and added a few new pieces. What do they mean?

We know that any change can be unsettling, but not everything is different. Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec will continue to reach our changing world with the unchanging Good News of Christ.

 

What It Means

 

The Cross

The Cross

The cross is central to who we are as followers of Jesus and who we are as Baptists. Foundational to our faith is our redemption by Christ through his suffering and resurrection.

The Fish

The Fish

The ichthus, or fish, has long been associated with CBOQ. We are fishers of men and women—missional people, responding to the great commission in sharing the Good News of Jesus with our neighbours and around the world.

The Circles

The Circles

The circle is eternal. We worship a God who was, is and is to come. We believe that his kingdom is without end and through him we have eternal life as well.

The Colour

The Colour

Blue represents water. We are Baptists, and as such the Believers’ Baptism remains key to our commitment of faith. It is our public declaration of belonging to Jesus.

The Letters

While it may be hard to see at first, our logo is made up of the letters C, B, O and Q.
