Who We Are

A church is not a building, but a people. Let us introduce ourselves – we are…

People who listen

One main reason we meet together several times each week is to listen – to one another and also to God. God is speaking today, and whenever the Bible is taught we hear his voice.

People who care

In a busy and often lonely world, we all need to be cared for and to care for others, too. Because we believe God cares for the world, we care for one another too, and all the things that bother us day by day.

People who praise

One thing that ought to come naturally is actually one of the hardest things to do – worship God! God is our maker and deserves all our praise. But he is also the loving God who gave his Son, Jesus Christ, to save us.

People who believe

The great truths of the Christian faith are very precious to us. In particular, we believe:

  • The Bible is God’s own word, and a sure and certain guide for life and eternity.
  • That God loved the world and gave his only Son to be its Saviour.
  • That Jesus died and rose again, and will return in great power and glory at the end of the world.
  • That men and women may have a real and living relationship with God through faith in Jesus.
  • That the Holy Spirit has power to change those that trust in Jesus Christ, giving them a new start – a clean record and a life worth living.

People with purpose

We are a people with real purpose in our lives. We enjoy life because we have been given new life in Jesus Christ, and know God in a personal way. Our aim is to please God and serve him. We try to show God’s love and care to those around us in a variety of ways – not least, in trying to introduce them to a relationship with God too!

We want to share with people of all ages the good news of Jesus Christ.

Moordown Baptist Church is not an exclusive club; all are welcome to come, whatever age. Children and young people are well catered for, too. From toddler groups and creche facilities through to action packed youth programmes on Sunday and Friday. We aim to provide your child with a healthy balance of physical activities (games, quizzes and craft) and structured Bible teaching (stories, studies and memory verses). Providing nurture for body, mind and soul.
