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.
