What we believe
Our church is a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and whilst in common with all member churches we are free to conduct ourselves as our fellowship decides, we are committed to following the Declaration of Principle of that union:
- We follow Jesus, who is revealed in the Bible as God in human form and is the absolute authority in all matters related to faith and practice. Our churches, guided by His Holy Spirit, have the freedom to interpret what He says, and put this into practice in their own contexts.
- Baptism is a necessary step for all who choose to follow Jesus and seek forgiveness for turning away from God. Baptism symbolises forgiveness both by the use of water (which washes) and by the identification with Jesus, who was himself baptised and who, according to the Bible, died for our sins, was buried, and rose again.
- Everyone who follows Jesus is called to play their part in sharing His message.
We are also committed to intentionally promoting the culture of the Baptist Union that you can read about here
