Sosthene Felix


Sosthene is the husband of Joanne and the father of 4 boys: Dorian, Davan, Donovan and David. He is originally from Haiti.


Emmanuel Baptist Church is blessed to be located in Canada’s beautiful and historic capital city. We are a warm and welcoming group of believers where Jesus Christ and the gospel are at the centre of everything we do. Our church takes the Bible seriously as our only rule of faith and practice as we seek to preach it fervently and obey it faithfully.

Not owning our own facilities has proved to be a significant asset. It has freed us to focus our God-given resources on what is vital and eternal, namely perishing people who need Christ. We are active but not program-centred; we are evangelistic but not shallow; we are traditional but not stuffy; we are going and growing.

We trust our website will be a help to you and that you will soon join us in one of our services to worship our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ.
