My condolences Sister Baird, daughters and grandchildren. May God’s strength be with you at this time of loss. I will never forget the “all-nighters” at your home or the powerful leadership of Pastor Baird that today still has a great impact in my life. I will never forget his encouragement to me after meeting up with him after so many, many, many years and the stories he told of his life. Stay strong. You are not alone.

Pastor Baird and Pastor Nelson have reunited once more.

We are all reminded through Rev. Baird’s death, that we are only here, on earth, for a season. Given that the value of the season is related to what we do for and in the kingdom, I rejoice with Rev. Baird in his transition from mortality to immortality. While I have met him on only a few occasions, his passion for the work of the Lord, both evangelistically and governmentally and medically – a wholistic approach, uncommon in his own circles, stood out for a generation. He gave me a good appreciation of the work of William Wilberforce and its… Read more »

My love and prayers for strength and comfort to the family and associates of this great Father in the Faith to so many of us. I know that I am not the only one whom he baptized in a river in Tunapuna, so I am sure that there are multitudes who share some measure of the sorrow of his passing. Yet we rejoice that he has gone to his rest and reward. May his name and his legacy of the primacy of the Gospel continue through all of us, as we seek to follow Christ, serving God in Spirit and… Read more »

We have many teachers …. but few fathers. Sad to see a tried tested and proven FATHER IN THE FAITH depart. His passing though sad, as he will surely be missed, but we sorrow not… but rejoice as he goes to his eternal rewards. I will never forget carrying the briefcase of this gentle giant of faith, when he came to teach our bible school class. It has been 15 plus years since i graduated from that bible school. I am a minister now and i will be eternally grateful for meeting Br Baird, having his anointed hands laid on… Read more »

Bro’Ken R. Fabre’ POPAPIC.org I shall never forget or cease to benefit spiritually from the week I lived in the Baird home during a Faith Revival Ministries Conference in the early 1990s. He and his precious bride Jacqueline were extremely gracious hosts to this then young Army lawyer from the US, seeking to grow in the LORD through the mentoring of Bertril Baird, Turnel Nelson and Myles Munroe for this entire week during the Conference. T’was my very first trip abroad and a divine appointment the LORD set up, assigning these Three Great Fathers to place their fingerprints on my… Read more »
