Bilberry: A Seed in Good Soil is a thematic history of the first 25 years of Bilberry Creek Baptist Church (BCBC) in Orleans, Ontario, Canada (  It describes how this English-speaking church entered into a “partnership of equals” with its French-speaking sister church Église Évangélique Baptiste d’Orléans to serve their bilingual community through a single church plant. This arrangement had unique programming and financial advantages for both congregations. Together, both experienced vibrant spirituality and engaged in effective evangelism; and Christian service to the community that was recognized by the media from coast to coast. The history addresses five themes: (1) Worship; (2) Preaching, mission and evangelism; (3) Teaching; (4) Fellowship; and (5) Service.

In its approach, BCBC is inclusive among Christian organizations and multi-ethnic in the make-up of its congregation. It is affiliated with Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec.
