Our Beliefs


 

 

We are a Baptist church with two church plants in London - Walthamstow and New Cross. We believe in the message of the gospel – that God entered our world in the person of Jesus Christ and did for us what we could never do for ourselves: rescue, redeem and renew us from evil, brokenness and death. We seek to build a community on and around the reality of this message.

 

The Scriptures

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.

 

God

There is one and only one living and true God. "The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

 

God the Father

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. "God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

 

God the Son

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. "He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.

 

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. "He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. "He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.

 

Man

Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation. "By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. " The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

 

Salvation

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and glorification.

 

God's Purpose of Grace

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. "All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.

 

The Church

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. This church is an autonomous body. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ, which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages. 

 

Baptism & the Lord's Supper

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. "It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.  The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members " memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

 

Evangelism & Missions

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations " to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by personal effort.
