This was the original Church of Promise vision statement, and although it is no longer headlines, it is by no means out of date, and still describes what we are about.
With God’s help, we are building a church of evangelical Protestant belief, as close as possible to the New Testament model, in which the Bible will be the sole authority in matters of belief and practice. Our formal Statement of faith is modelled on the Evangelical Alliance www.eauk.org basis of faith.
We invite you to join us if you have a passion for God or want to discover what it means to be part of a community of New Testament Christians. Please contact us or come to our meeting on Sunday where you will find a warm welcome!
