Our Beliefs

As a Baptist Church we hold a number of core evangelical beliefs. A simple English summary of those beliefs are listed below: 

      • All people have rebelled against God and are sinners.
      • Jesus Christ is God's one and only Son.
      • Christ died to pay the penalty for humanity's rebellion.
      • God's Spirit works within a person so that they might turn back to God by believing in Jesus.
      • God inspired the sixty-six books of the Bible to be written and they are His word to all people.
      • God will raise all people to life to face his judgment.
      • There will be a day of judgment on which people will either receive everlasting life or eternal punishment.
      • Believers are to be baptised by immersion.

These beliefs are explained more fully in the Baptist Union 1979 Statement of Beliefs.
