We believe the Bible is the word of God and that believers’ baptism is a public expression of a personal faith in Jesus.
We have adopted the 5 core values of a Baptist Church to be a prophetic, inclusive, sacrificial, missionary, worshipping Christian community.

Using a variety of styles and approaches, we aim to make worship more accessible and inclusive.
In our life together we seek always to be bound in love and fellowship, and, as we journey together, to work in the unity of the Spirit for the sake of God’s mission.
In our communities we promote justice and all that it is good and true and seek to bring the love of Jesus into everyday life for the growth of the Kingdom of God. Play a full part in the East Midlands Baptist Association and working, as much as possible, with churches of other traditions.
