What we believe

Most of us celebrate CHRISTmas - when God became a human being in Christ; he did this in order to die and pay the penalty and consequences of all our wrong attitudes, actions, priorities and words etc. By his resurrection - which most of us celebrate at Easter - Christ overcame death and sin. In our lives today, we can encounter the same Godly power that raised Jesus from the dead. But first, we need to genuinely repent and say sorry to God, turning from wrong things in our lives. Then we trust and believe in Jesus and receive the gift of New Life.

We are a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the South Eastern Baptist Association and affirm the BU Declaration of Principle1 and we are members of the Evangelical Alliance.

The following summary of beliefs is based on the EA statement of faith.

We believe in....

1 That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy scriptures and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws. That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water in to the name of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who "died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again on the third day"

That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.
