What we believe

We are a group of Baptists who, as part of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, subscribe to their Declaration of Principle, which is below:

The Basis of the Baptist Union is:

  1. That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws.
  2. That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who 'died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again on the third day.'
  3. That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.

We share these beliefs practically in how we live, genuinely in our hearts, prayerfully in our time of family worship together and sincerely in our service to Northfield and the wider world.
