Restored Lives - Revived Church - Renewed Community

What We Believe

As part of the Baptist Union of Scotland and as a member of the Evangelical Alliance, we hold to the Baptist Declaration of Principle and the Evangelical Alliance Basis of Faith.  These help to communicate the core beliefs of who we are, and help to shape how we live as a community of faith.

The Baptist Declaration of Principle

1. That the Lord Jesus Christ our God and Saviour 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 the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried and rose again the third day.

3. That it is the duty of every disciple to bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.
