Who we Are
What we Believe
Who we Support
In 2002, the Samson Christian Slo-Pitch League was founded out of the need for a church based league that would always ensure quality in all areas of the game. With this mandate, the league only provides its teams with diamonds that meet the standards of any professional slo-pitch association, umpires that are fully trained and certified, a playoff system that only rewards those that perform the sport well, and an online information system that keeps all players updated in real time.
Over the years, the league has improved the quality of the experience as well. We have a league MVP voting system, trophies for teams and individuals, an All-Star game that features the best from each church, a Home Run Derby, and a skills competition.
As the slo-pitch play improves, so does the outreach to the unsaved. To ensure that our Christian witness is always on display, rules of conduct that reflect Christian values are incorporated into rulebook and a comprehensive accountability system ensures good sportsmanship. Yearly donations are given to other Christian organizations that evangelize, and each season starts with a preseason event that brings a former MLB player to proclaim a Gospel message.
God has blessed the league with growth, and we have rapidly grown from the original 8 London teams to the current 20 teams representing 16 churches from London and Strathroy. We look forward to serving Him for many years to come.
The league was incorporated in 2011, and now operates under Samson League Inc.
We believe that the Scriptures are the perfect Word of God, and to be believed, obeyed, and trusted in all that it says.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, and existing in a unity of three equally divine Persons.
We believe that all humanity is alienated from God due to sin, and can be rescued, reconciled, and restored only through God's gracious work in Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, having been born of the virgin Mary, was crucified, and arose bodily from the dead. His shed blood and resurrection are the only grounds for salvation, through faith alone.
We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to turn to God in repentance and receive the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the unbeliever will face judgement and eternal conscious punishment, while the believer will experience eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord, to the praise of His glorious grace.
