Vision Statement

"Crofton Baptist Church exists to help people become fully committed and equipped disciples of Jesus Christ"
 

Core Values

We aim to fulfil this vision through a set of core values:

  • Jesus centred teaching and preaching

  • Prayer that is both personal and corporate

  • Loving relationships across the generations

  • Serving others as we identify and use our spiritual gifts

  • Passionate outreach both at home and overseas

  • Engaging with our society in ways that are culturally relevant

  • Joyful and creative worship that is grounded in scripture

Implications

For our church members this practically means:

  • Being committed to personal and spiritual growth through the regular reading of God's Word

  • Living as a disciple of Jesus every day of the week

  • Belonging to an appropriate small group/Home Group

  • Learning to share your faith in Christ in natural and unforced ways

  • Being involved in a group/activity within your local community

  • Sharing your resources for the sake of God's kingdom and for the care of others

  • Playing your part in a church that lives up to the image of being a church that follows Jesus Christ

  • Complete submission to the Holy Spirit in both decision-making and behaviour
