You Are Very Welcome
Newark Baptist Church
We are a family of Christians seeking to know and serve their God better every day. We try to base our lives on the teaching of Jesus from the Bible; in fact we consider the Bible to be the inspired word of God and look to it for guidance throughout our lives.
Our heart is to be as close to the New Testament church as described in the book of Acts as possible. Our worship is Holy Spirit led, relaxed and informal; the focus being a willingness to allow God to move. Our church is a body of people from many walks of life and all are welcome to worship with us
While we are convinced that forgiveness comes only through Jesus Christ; that no amount of good works can win God over, we seek to demonstrate our faith through the things that we do. We see the duty of caring for one another as the responsibility of everyone in the church not just the leaders. We also look to support the poor and vulnerable in the town through initiating or supporting various projects.
Obviously as a Baptist Church we are keen to see people become Christians and get baptised. More than this, we are keen to see the church grow in maturity and understanding. It is not enough simply to pray a prayer of commitment to God, be baptised or attend church regularly; we would like to see people grow and change for the better as they regularly encounter the real and living God. Our aim in promoting Christ is to help people develop a full and lasting faith.
