What We Believe
We believe in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with anyone who lives in and around Amesbury, especially Boscombe Down, Archers Gate, King’s Gate and the surrounding area.
We believe that we can grow to spiritual maturity by engaging with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit through prayer, Bible studies, home groups, regular church appearance and attending external Christian events.
We believe that everyone has a God-given gift to be discovered and used for active service within our community.
We believe in a place where the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated, the lonely and confused can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance and encouragement.
We believe at Amesbury Baptist Church that everyone is important and loved by God and it is our heartfelt desire to honour these principles too.
In common with other Christian churches we worship in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit – the ‘three in one’ or TRINITY – as revealed to us in the Bible, our authority in all matters of faith.
The Bible tells us the story how God has acted to rescue humanity, through the life, death and resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ. It tells us how God acts today to bring us back into relationship with himself, forgiving our sins and giving us life to the full. It tells us how the Holy Spirit – God’s presence among us – forms us into a community (the Church) and empowers us to live in the way of Jesus Christ for the good of the world.
We are a Baptist Church and part of ‘Baptist Union of Great Britain’. Baptists are a well-established Christian denomination in the UK and around the world, with a fascinating history. The early Baptists stood out in their day for freedom of belief and conscience and called people to profess their faith publicly through baptism as believers. They also called followers of Jesus to work out their faith in community, walking together and watching over one another.
