What we believe
Harborne Baptist Church is an evangelical Christian church with a vision to be a community of believers who seek to use our gifts to share the Good News of Jesus.
As a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, Harborne Baptist Church subscribes to the Union's Declaration of Principle. This is based on the words of Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20.
The Declaration of Principle
The Basis of the Baptist Union is:
1. That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws.
2. That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who 'died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again the third day'.
3. That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.
