Vision and Values
Our vision and values are based around our value for tradition and desire to become whole beings that serve God and the community we live in, as well as further afield.
We affirm the central truths of the Christian faith, seeing ourselves in a long line of generations taking part in the endless conversation between God and people.
We embrace the salvation Jesus offers as a hope for the healing of our relationships with God, each other, ourselves and creation.
We are constantly exploring, questioning and wrestling with new and creative ways to live out and communicate the teachings of Jesus. Because we see faith as a journey, change is assumed, innovation is expected and rebirth is welcomed.
We value the image of God in all people, everywhere. We believe we were created to live deeply with one another. We believe that Jesus is God in human form and that the Church is God's ongoing presence in the world. Lead by the Spirit of God, we are passionate about relieving suffering and fighting injustice, joining with the God of the oppressed in living out the transforming message of the resurrected Jesus.
Our vision as a church is all about being and making: Whole Life Missionary Disciples
Devoting every moment of every day in every area of our lives to being with God, on mission with Him as He works around us, in us and through us to accomplish what we can never do ourselves.
We are part of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and agree with there declaration of principles.
