Pastor Chris Wyatt
Pastor Wyatt was born and raised in England. Though nominally religious, the Wyatt family was not introduced to the Gospel until coming to Canada. It was here in Canada that some Bible-believing Christians shared with Pastor Wyatt’s parents that according to the Bible, they must be born again (John 3:3). Though initially this message was not well received, in time, each of the members of the family came to the place where they repented of their sin and placed their faith in Jesus Christ alone for their salvation, and were thus born again in accordance with our Lord’s command. For Pastor Wyatt, this took place as a 12 year old boy in Burlington, ON.
After receiving Christ as his Saviour, Pastor Wyatt was baptized and began to faithfully attend Miracle Baptist Church in Burlington, ON. During his later high school years, Pastor Wyatt began taking Bible college courses at the church, and upon completing high school became a full time student in the church’s Bible institute, under the ministry of the late Pastor Carson Mitchell.
In 1990, Pastor Wyatt was married and moved to Kitchener, where he & Karolyn got involved in the ministries of Kitchener Baptist Church, serving in the children’s department, the youth department, music, teaching & preaching. In 1997, Pastor Wyatt became the Assistant Pastor of Kitchener Baptist Church under the ministry of Dr. Philip Clayton. It was in that position that he served until June 2002 when God called him to start Beacon Baptist Church in Cambridge, ON. He has been the Pastor of Beacon Baptist since its inception.
Pastor Wyatt believes that God has the answers to life, and eternal life, and that these answers are found in the Bible, God’s Word. Thus with conviction and compassion, our Pastor faithfully preaches form the Book of books, the Bible. Like Paul of old, Pastor Wyatt declares, “For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.”(II Corinthians 4:5).
