That we, as a Society of professing Christians, meeting for worship in the Baptist Church, The Square, Stockton-on-Tees, and voluntarily united together in Church Fellowship, are Baptists (Colossians 1:18).

We believe in:

  • The Divine inspiration of Holy Scriptures as originally given (2 Timothy 3:15-17)
  • The Unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead (John 17:3 & 21)
  • The universal sinfulness of man rendering him subject to God’s condemnation (Isaiah 53:6; John 3:36)
  • Redemption from the penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ the Incarnate Son of God (2 Corinthians 5:15–21)
  • The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the Believer (Ephesians 1:13)
  • The personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 1:6-11)
  • One Holy Church, the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:4-6)
  • There are two sacraments or ordinances, which are Believers’ Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper or Communion (Acts 2: 38, Acts 8:38-39, Romans 6:4, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
