What we believe.
Baptists believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It tells us all we need to know with regard to how we should live and what we should believe.
The Bible tells us about Jesus Christ the Son of God who entered our world, born of the virgin Mary, and who lived to tell us about the Kingdom of God and his love for us.
The Bible tells us Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin. He was taken down from the cross and buried in a tomb but on the third day he rose up from the dead. Now he is seated at God’s right hand waiting the day when God the Father tells him to come back and take us all to the judgment seat of God.
The Bible tells us that every person will stand before God and be judged according to whether our names are recorded in the Book of Life. Those who do not have their names in the Book of Life will be cast out of God’s presence into hell.
The Bible tells us that there is no reason why anyone should go to hell because Jesus loves us and died to pay the penalty for our sin. Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Son of God and receives Him becomes a child of God. Their names will be written in the Book of Life.
The Bible tells us that baptism is only for those who are true followers of Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord. Only those who are mature enough to make their own decision to receive Jesus should be baptised by immersion and accepted as members of the Church of Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us that the Church is the Body of Christ and that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-Head, gives each member a gift or gifts to help the other members of the body to grow to maturity in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit Himself chooses what gift we will have and these gifts are given for the benefit of everyone else.
The Bible tells us that the Lord’s Supper was given to Christians by the Lord Jesus Christ to remind us that he gave his life for us. The bread reminds us of his body given for us and the wine speaks to us of his blood shed for us in order to make a new contract between God and his people.
We value religious toleration and freedom. Many Baptist have died in order to separate church and state and we continue to believe that there should be a clear separation of Church and State.
