What We Believe 

Of course, you are most welcome at any of our activities or worship services whatever you believe.  Nevertheless, we hold firm convictions about God and the world. We believe that:

  • God is full of love for the whole of His creation and especially us humans whom He created 'in his image'
  • We are alienated from God because of our tendency to ignore God and live shallow and selfish lives 
  • God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to draw us back into His love. 
  • Jesus was rejected by the people of his time who brutally murdered him on the cross.
  • In His death, Jesus has brought reconciliation between God and His creation.
  • Jesus was raised bodily from the dead and offers the same new life to anyone who will come to Him.
  • God gives His presence, in the person of His Holy Spirit, to His people. 
  • God speaks to people in many ways but primarily through the Bible. 
  • God's people are called to live unselfishly and in obedience to God's law of love.  The Holy Spirit helps us to do this.
  • One day Jesus will return to the earth and establish a new and perfect creation.  God wants everyone to be a part of that.
Here is a brief video presentation with our Christian beliefs. 

If you don't agree with our beliefs, or want to know more, we would love the opportunity for a respectful, open-hearted discussion with you at a coffee shop of your choice (we'll pay for the coffee!).  

Our beliefs are stated more formally in our 'Articles of Faith' which are included in our Memorandum and Articles of Association.  

As a Baptist church we are members of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and hold to its Declaration of Principle.
