What we Believe

We are an evangelical church, and part of the Evangelical Alliance.

This means we believe the Bible is the means through which we discover how to experience salvation and shows us what it means to follow Jesus. It also means that we think the Bible is good news for everyone and want to respectfully and gently share this with you.


We are also a Baptist church

WBC is a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain (and therefore Churches Together in Great Britain and Ireland). This means we believe that the Bible teaches that when someone decides to follow Jesus they demonstrate this by being baptised by full immersion. Secondly it means that we believe we are all equal before Jesus and therefore must all take our responsibility together to ensure we follow Jesus as a church. In practice this means it is the local congregation that decides and resources all that we do in following Jesus as a church.
