Who We Are and What We Believe


As Baptists we come from a nonconformist free church tradition.

We believe that everyone has the freedom of worship no matter what belief and we will stand up for that right. But in doing so that gives us the right to enter into a dialogue with others regarding faith and its meaning.

Our vision as a church is to see people becoming followers of Jesus. We want to see lives changed and hope and restoration brought to the community we are here to serve. We believe that faith in Jesus Christ has the power to achieve this. But people won’t find out unless someone tells them.

Romans 10:14 states:

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?

And by ‘preaching’ we mean exploring Gods Word together and finding what it means to be a disciple of the risen Christ in the world today.

We also hold to the Baptist Union of Scotland’s declaration of principles which state:

  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.
