Our Pastor

janzen family

Timothy Janzen is our pastor at Capital City Baptist Church. God saved him at the age of fourteen while living in Germany. After moving to Canada in 2009, he surrendered to serve his Saviour, and graduated from Canadian Baptist Bible College. After marrying his beautiful wife Esther, God has blessed them with two young children: Abigail and Isaiah. In 2017 the Capital City Baptist Church family asked the Janzens to move to Victoria, and Timothy became our pastor. They love living on the Island and are excited to serve our local community. Pastor Janzen enjoys biking, reading, going for walks, canoeing, family time, and most of all, exploring God’s Word.

Timothy’s and Esther’s passion is to reach our city, and all the world, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Their vision is to bring help, hope and real answers to every person. Having personally experienced the power of God’s grace, forgiveness, and victory in Christ, Timothy’s desire for you is to experience God’s amazing faithfulness and power in your own life.

Our History

A Story of God's Faithfulness...

Capital City Baptist Church was founded in the summer of 1980 by Pastor Harold Jayne. The church was officially organized on October 1, 1981 with 31 charter members. In 1988 our church called Pastor Normand Lafleur to lead our church family. He was a career navy man who had been saved through the ministry of Capital City Baptist Church. After years of ministering in Victoria he moved to Quebec to preach the Gospel.

Throughout the years God has used different people to lead our team as we share the Good News of Jesus Christ in our city. We are grateful for God’s faithfulness over many years! The story of our church is a monument to God’s greatness,  faithfulness, and provision. It has been God’s grace that has brought us through every victory and every trial throughout the years, as we continue to move forward with excitement for what He continues to do. Until 2017, Pastor Bill Carter pastored Capital City Baptist Church. In September 2017 the church family called our former assistant pastor, Timothy Janzen, to lead the ministry of Capital City Baptist Church. Pastor Timothy Janzen and his wife Esther, together with their two young children, look forward to giving you a warm welcome as our guest at Capital City Baptist Church. We invite you to worship together with us! Come and listen to the  preaching of God’s Word and the singing of up-lifting hymns. Together we will see God’s answers for the issues of our modern  lives. The timeless truths of God’s preserved Word are exciting and helpful to every person, no matter their age or stage in life.
