Yes, Blessed Hope Baptist Church and Pastor Gleb Glebov are related to the New IFB

Blessed Hope Baptist Church in New Westminster British Columbia Canada, which goes by blessedbaptist1611 on facebook, is a church that is closely related to the New IFB. Since the church was never listed in the New IFB church directory, and has since had a falling out with New IBF leadership, Pastor Gleb has realized that hiding from his New IFB past is the best way to try and gain membership.

He has done some commendable things in that regard, such as decrying the New IFB’s false gospel through a series of videos on his YouTube channel. However, other than a few points of doctrine, Gleb and Blessed Hope Baptist Church still agree with the New IFB and teach their doctrines.

It starts with Bill MacGregor, who helped his father plant a New IFB Church in Canada – Trinity Baptist Church. Anderson and others from the New IFB came and visited the church and approved of it. Below is an interview between Bill and Manly Perry.

The New IFB kicked MacGregor out over a few issues, around the time of a controversy on the impeccability of Christ. Despite this, Bill is still holding onto the title of New IFB.

Below is the header to Bill’s channel on YouTube as of August 17, 2019:

So what does this have to do with Gleb Glebov and Blessed Hope Baptist Church? Gleb was ordained by Trinity Baptist Church and pastor Robert MacGregor:

Bill MacGregor reviewed Blessed Hope Baptist Church on facebook. Here is what he said- note how he affiliates the church with the New IFB:

Oh, and those two ‘likes’ on his comment? One of them is from Blessed Hope Baptist Church- Gleb himself.

The New IFB is bad news – and so is Blessed Hope Baptist Church. Stay away!

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and children am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Chrsitian Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.
