Basis of Faith

This is our church's Basis of Faith - a concise statement of what we believe.  For ease of reading, we have summarised the 1966 Baptist Affirmation of Faith under 8 key headings:

What we believe about God:

What we believe about the Bible:

What we believe about humankind:

What we believe about Jesus:

What we believe about salvation:

What we believe about the Holy Spirit:

What we believe about the church:

What we believe about the future:

But why do we need one anyway?

Why is it important for a church to have a basis of faith?  Some people believe that these are unnecessary in church life, but it is important to set out what we believe the Bible teaches about God and ourselves.  These are the truths you will hear taught at the church.  Jesus said that many people will call him Lord, but not all will belong to him.  This sobering message means it is critical to set out where we stand as a church.
