Welcome to Seaford Baptist Church

You can be sure of a warm welcome here and we would love you to become a member of our church family. There are lots of opportunities for you to use your skills, talents and abilities in God’s service. We really want to help you understand what it means to be a Christian in today’s world and why you want to become one. Please feel free to speak to one of our stewards or a member of the Leadership Team and take one of the Welcome leaflets available in the church lobby.

At Seaford Baptist Church you will find a modern style of service led by a worship group at the front with singers and musicians. We sing a mixture of modern and traditional songs but we put our all into our worship of God whatever the music. During the service you will hear a talk from a minister or a leader on a wide range of themes relevant to how we live today.

We have small groups for those who wish to study the Bible and find out how it speaks to us today. There is also a very wide range of other groups including those which cater for children and young people and groups for those of later years and those with various interests including art and music. 

We are a Baptist Church and believe that getting baptised by immersion is a wonderful and transforming spiritual experience. We have members of our church who have been members of many different Christian denominations and they all seem very happy with our openness to other Christian traditions and our desire to work with other churches in the town.

What we believe

As Christians we believe that as the creator and ruler of the universe, God exists in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

The Son of God, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for sin by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead to show his power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and he will return again to reign over the earth.  He now brings us into a new relationship with him and, by his Holy Spirit, enables us to live a life full of joy and power.

 

We believe that the Bible is God’s unique revelation to mankind, the inspired, infallible Word of God. As such, it is the supreme and final authority for faith and practice. We believe that Christians should meet together to build each other up in their faith and to encourage one another to share their faith with others and to do good to each other and to the community around them. 

 

We also hold to the Evangelical Alliance Basis of Faith and the Baptists Together Declaration of Principle
