About Canaan Baptist Church of Christ

Thank you for visiting the website of one America’s great ambassadors of Christian faith. For 75 years, Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem, New York has been a beacon of light, shining brightly across the globe, bringing hope to weary travelers in search of truth.

The hand of God has worked mightily within this congregation to bring Canaan from its humble beginnings, in 1932, to its historic achievements in this present day. My predecessors, the Reverend E.M. Moore and the Reverend Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker, stood at the helm of this ship for many years. God used both of these men to raise Canaan to become a national model for ministry. Our congregation is gifted with committed, energetic, and spiritual disciples, who continue to bear witness to God’s love through a spirited worship experience, a nurturing fellowship, an effective teaching ministry, and an outreach initiative that continues to transform lives in the Harlem community and around the world.

I invite you to enjoy your visit to our site. Please take time to learn about the many opportunities for spiritual growth that are available for you and your family here at Canaan . And, please log on as often as possible for news and announcements of upcoming Canaan events.
