The Baptist Union

The church is affiliated to the Baptist Union of Great Britain and we seek to uphold the Baptist Union’s five core values by being:

  1. A Prophetic Community – Following Jesus in confronting evil, injustice and hypocrisy. Challenging worldly concepts of power, wealth, status and security.
  2. An Inclusive Community – Following Jesus in transcending barriers of gender, language, race, class, age and culture. Identifying with those who are rejected, deprived and powerless.
  3. A Sacrificial Community – Following Jesus in accepting vulnerability and the necessity of sacrifice. Seeking to reflect the generous, life-giving nature of God.
  4. A Missionary Community – Following Jesus in demonstrating in word and action God’s forgiving and healing love. Calling and enabling people to experience the love of God for themselves.
  5. A Worshipping Community – Following Jesus in engaging in worship and prayer which inspire and undergird all we are and do. Exploring and expressing what it means to live together as the people of God, obeying his Word and following Christ in the whole of daily life.
