What we are

General

We are aware that there are many different kinds of churches, and a wide variety of beliefs and practices. If you are looking for a church, you will probably want to know where we stand, particularly on certain practical issues. The best thing to do is to visit us and find out what our convictions look like in practice. We are happy to provide the following summary of our convictions on issues over which Christians can differ.

Evangelical

We are an “evangelical” church. This means that we believe in the Bible as the inspired, infallible, and inerrant word of God. It also means that we are committed to the gospel, which is the good news of salvation for sinners through faith in Jesus Christ, on the basis of His life, death and resurrection.

We also recognise that the encouragement of believers in love and fellowship is of paramount importance and we take every opportunity to find ways of including this in the regular activities of the church.

Theology

We are a “Reformed” church. This means that we are committed to the doctrines of grace that were rediscovered at the time of the Reformation, and that were given exceptional clarity and systematic expression in the Reformed confessions of faith. Our doctrinal basis is the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith (see “What we believe”).

While we are a reformed church, we seek continually to reform our practice as we gain an increasing understanding of the Bible, and apply its truth to the contemporary situations we face.

Baptism

We believe in the practice of the baptism of believers by immersion as being the best representation of the teaching and recorded examples in the New Testament.

Affiliation

We are not part of any denomination, but are in fellowship with the Grace Baptist Association, an affiliation of like-minded independent churches. What these churches have in common is the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith as their doctrinal basis.
