Our vision can be summed up in one simple statement – our desire is to be disciples, and to help others become disciples of Jesus.
We believe in the existence of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit – one God in three persons.
We believe that out of his love for us, God sent his only Son, Jesus Christ to earth.
We believe in His virgin birth, perfect life, His death and bodily resurrection, whereby he paid for the sins of humanity.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour of the world, that He will return to the Earth, and that through belief in Him, all can inherit eternal life.
We believe in the in-dwelling power of the Holy Spirit, who strengthens and enables us to live out the Christian faith, and who reveals God’s will to us.
Baptists are Christian believers with certain distinctive beliefs, which are summed up here.
Baptists believe in the centrality of Jesus Christ in our lives, and that through Him, we can draw near to the Father and receive from Him the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, and that its teaching is central to the Christian life.
Baptists believe that all Christians are equal, and we strongly support the the right to religious belief free from interference or oppression by states and governments .
However, probably the most distinctive feature of a Baptist church is our practice of baptising believers by fully immersing them in water, as the early Christian church did.
We believe that the act of baptism symbolises a person’s death to their previous lifestyle and their rising up to newness of life. Thus baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the outward sign of a believer’s faith.
Everyone at Bearsden Baptist would love to invite you to our Sunday morning service at 10.30 a.m.
We are a family-centred church, aiming to serve our community, and so visitors are assured of a warm and friendly welcome at our church, where a crèche is always available during the service, as well as our Kidzone group for kids from preschool age to P6. We also run our Crossroads group for young people of secondary age during the service – so why not bring the whole family to church! After the service tea, coffee and biscuits are on offer, and you have an opportunity to chat and get to know new people – it would be great to meet you.
We also meet on Sunday evenings at 7.30 p.m. for our “Prayer Space” meetings which are an opportunity to take time away from our busy lives for reflection and worship. Everyone is welcome at these services.
