We Believe


A Google search defines Christianity as "based on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ." And that's pretty much what it is - Christianity is all about a person - Jesus.  It is about believing that he saved us from sin through what he did on the cross and loving and following him as a response to it.

Here are a few questions which should help you understand what we believe as Christians at Crofton Baptist Church:

 


What do we believe about Jesus?

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He came into the world to die on the cross to forgive our sins. He rose from the dead to give us new life. To receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour we need to surrender our lives to him and rely on the power of his Holy Spirit to become the people God wants us to be.


What do we believe about the Bible?

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and as such is the final authority for our lives as Christians. The life of the church reflects our trust in the complete truthfulness of the Bible in a range of different ways and the Bible is always central to our worship services.


What do we believe about Baptism?

We believe in and practice the baptism by immersion of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Those who accept Jesus Christ as their saviour can ask to be baptised. We believe that it is right that we should be baptised by immersion in water because that was how Jesus was baptised in the River Jordan by John the Baptist.


What do we believe about our mission?

We believe that as Christ's people we are his Ambassadors, representing him to the world.  It is our hope and prayer that we can serve and honour him as we do so.
