Life of Chiddingfold Baptist Church
The life of Chiddingfold Baptist Church is inspired by and expressed through its commitment to the way of Jesus. By the means of its presence and service to the community of Chiddingfold the fellowship seeks to ensure that all have the opportunity to encounter, experience and enjoy the Good News of God’s everlasting love. Our Church is a place where the Gospel is a living reality and where anyone can expect to meet faith, hope and love.
Chiddingfold Baptist Church is very much an ongoing story and as we journey into all that God has for us we do so with anticipation and joy for we believe that God is good all the time and with God all things are possible.
What we value and believe affect who we are and how we live our lives. Therefore even though we seek to hold a generous and pilgrim theology we believe some foundational truths as God’s people.
What we believe about God
There is only one God, revealed to us in the scriptures in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
How we view the Bible
The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, being divinely inspired, can be trusted fully to reveal and lead us to the way of salvation and can help us live lives that reflect God’s glory.
Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.
The death of Jesus Christ is the only way by which we may receive God’s forgiveness and be reconciled to Him. By our Saviour’s death, and our faith in Him, we are put right with God.
The Holy Spirit lives within the believer and helps them to live the kind of life which pleases God.
Those who place their faith in Jesus Christ receive eternal life, and are assured that what God begins God will finish.
Things God’s people should do
Announce God’s Gospel, Demonstrate God’s love, Celebrate God’s presence
Christ calls all who believe in Him to be baptised and to remember Him in the Lord’s Supper.
