Lead Pastor

Mario Bruno is a graduate of Ontario Bible College, in Toronto (now Tyndale University College and Seminary). Before beginning his ministry at Park Lawn Baptist Church he served under the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches of Canada as a church planter in the City of Toronto for 8 years and then for 30 years in Rome, Italy. He is a published author of Italian evangelistic books and

literature. Together with his wife, Rose, he has 4 daughters and 12 grandchildren.

My story:

I was born in one of the poorer regions of southern Italy and immigrated to Canada when my father brought our family to over to this new country of many material blessings. We were among the millions coming to Canada seeking a better way of life. I was 2 years old at the time.

I had always considered myself a Christian because my parents raised me in the Roman Catholic traditions and faith. My family attended Mass every Sunday.

When I was 16 years old I bought a Bible and began reading it. I was surprised to discover that much of what I had been taught in my religious upbringing was not part of the Gospel. One evening, while reading God’s Word, I felt a conviction come over me that, in truth, I had never been a real Christian, that is, a disciple of Jesus Christ.

I immediately prayed for the Lord to forgive me of my hypocrisy and make me one of His children. I knew God had changed my life because I had a strong desire to serve Him. Both my parents noticed the change in my life and were glad for the new direction it had taken.

I have been reading and studying the Bible for more than 50 years and can testify that it is wholly true and is completely dependable in all matters of faith and conscience. The God who has given us His Word is the true and living God. He is the Creator of the heavens and earth and all they contain. Peace with God and self can only be found in the saving activity of Jesus Christ, the one who died in our place on the cross.

God’s words, as recorded in the Scriptures, are: “more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them [His] servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward” (Psalm 19:10-11).
