Pastor’s Greeting

As pastor of Summerside Fundamental Baptist Church let me welcome you to our web site. My name is Ian Kurylyk, and I have been pastoring the church here in Summerside since 1988.  Prince Edward Island is the province I grew up in during the 1960’s and 1970’s.   In the late 1970’s I attended university in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It was there that I became a born again Christian by trusting Jesus Christ as my personal saviour.  I am thankful that both my parents were Bible believing Christians and taught me God’s plan of salvation from my childhood.   It is good news indeed that God loves us and sent His Only Begotten Son into the world to pay for our sins by His sacrificial death on the cross.   His resurrection is the proof that the price is completely paid and all we need to do is turn from our sin and put our faith in the Saviour.

I found that personal salvation made a great difference and I began to have a new interest in the Word of God.   The Bible and its truths become real to a person when they experience Bible salvation.   I found in my own experience that the Bible is not only a daily source of food for the soul, but that it also has all the answers to the most perplexing questions and difficulties we can face.   In time I felt the Lord wanted me to become a minister of the Word of God and resigned my job to pursue the Lord’s work.   My philosophy of ministry comes out of my own personal conviction of the importance and sufficiency of the Book.   My focus is on teaching and preaching the Word since I believe it is sufficient and overflowing with all that a person needs spiritually for time and for eternity.

We would like to share this Truth of God with you in our written and recorded ministry found on this web site.   We hope that we can be of help to you in the great goal of knowing God and walking with Him every day of your life.


Ian (Pastor) and Elvira Kurylyk
