Who we are

Welcome

We’d like to tell you a bit about Northumberland Heath Baptist Church as we hold out the hand of friendship. Although we're a bunch of fairly ordinary people, we've made an amazing discovery. And it's because of this that the church is full of life and is hopefully making a difference within our community. Of course, it's a discovery that you can make too... so long as you have an open heart and mind. But don't just take our word for it. Read on and find out more...

BELONGING

The basis of all we believe and stand for is that true Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship. Whether young or old, we can enter into a personal relationship with God the Father, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. His Word, the Bible, tells us how this can be and Sunday by Sunday its truths are explained and applied to our daily living.

In these difficult days, how good it is to hear the Lord Jesus saying...

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28"

But of course we can't know the peace of God until we first find peace WITH God. And again the Lord Jesus points us in the right direction when He says...

...I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

But then, this is only the beginning of the story, and there really is so much more to discover at Northumberland Heath Church today.

REAL LIVES

From the youngest to the oldest, there's something for everyone at Northumberland Heath Baptist Church. That's because we all stand in need of the Lord's special help, especially in the really big issues of life and death. He tells us in His Word that even our best efforts to live a decent life are not good enough to put us 'right' with Him...

...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God... Romans 3:23

..and that the ultimate consequences are as serious as they come...

...people are destined to die once and after that to face judgment... Hebrews 9:27

Thankfully, God has already provided a ‘way of escape’ ...

Real Hope

REAL HOPE

The wide range of church activities are where many of us meet old friends and make new ones. Yet God Himself wants to become our greatest friend and He has gone to an amazing length to make this possible... 2000 years ago on the Cross of Calvary...

...God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

Of course, His friendship is not forced upon us. By seeking His forgiveness, turning away from all we know to be wrong, and asking the risen Christ Jesus into our lives as Saviour and Lord, we come to know Him... not simply by hearsay, but as a true friend. We’re also given a completely new start in life...

...if anyone is in Christ, that person is a new creation. The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17

Although in this way the 'price' of putting us right with God has been paid for us at Calvary, the Lord Jesus says that there's a cost to becoming one of His true followers...

You are my friends if you do as I command. John 15:14

TRUE RELATIONSHIP
The Church

We're so pleased to see our premises well used throughout the week. But of course, we realise that Northumberland Heath Baptist is not a building but God’s people who worship there and reach out to our community with His love.

Even then, the central feature of true Christianity is neither its traditions nor its activities. It's the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, and all that His life, death and resurrection represents. So this the challenge facing each one of us...

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

The next step is yours in getting to know us ...but much more importantly, in coming to know Him!
