What Is Christianity?

The message at the heart of Christianity is pretty simple. Find out what it's all about on this two-minute video. Turn your speakers on! At the bottom of the page there are details on how to ask any questions you may have.

 

Christianity is about Jesus. But who is Jesus?

Jesus once asked his followers this question:

"Who do you say I am?"

  • A prophet with a new teaching?
  • A healer to the sick?
  • A saviour to a lost world?


WIC.1

Jesus claimed each of these, but most importantly, he claimed to be God in the flesh.

At the dawn of time he ignited human history when he spoke. He breathed life into the lungs of the first man and woman - and every inch of creation itself.

WIC2

But we rebelled. We turned against our King and followed our own ways, even though it would cost us our life. Our sin poisoned his perfect creation, giving way to sickness, injustice, and death.

WIC3

Sin separated us from one another, and from God.

Why did Jesus come?

But rather than cast off humanity, God sent his Son Jesus to enter into the world he Created - the one broken by our sin. He breathed our air, became human like us.

WIC4

He lived a perfect life - the one God intended we live - and called us to repent of our sin and follow him in faith. 

Some believed his word and recognised him as King. Others denied him. They crowned him with thorns and murdered him. They rejected him, and so have we.

But God had a plan. Jesus willingly gave himself up to die on a cross to save us from God's judgment and the death we deserve.

WIC5

On that cross, he exchanged our rebellion for his obedience. Our brokenness for his perfection.

The Son of God died so we could live.

And on the third day, he rose to life again, defeating death forever.

And now, he sits on the throne of heaven, offering life through the Holy Spirit to all those who repent and trust in him.

WIC6

What does it mean for us?

Jesus is the King of Kings.

You can either crown him or crucify him. There is no middle ground.

No one will ever ask you a more important question than the one Jesus asked:

Who do you say I am?

Planning your Visit

Welcome

The following information is specifically for those new to us.  We hope it gives you an idea of the kind of people we are, and what to expect from us when you visit.

Who are we?

We are a Baptist church affiliated to the Baptist Union of Great Britain and we welcome anyone to come and worship with us and be part of our community.  More information on what we believe can be found on the About Us part of the site.

Accessibility: Access to our site is up a steep concrete drive, and we have a shallow ramp to access to our main building from the car park.  Our disabled toilet is also in this main building.  We don't have pews, so can easily move chairs to accommodate space for a mobility scooter or a wheelchair next to a carer.  Please let us know in advance if you need us to reserve space for disabled parking.
