The Church seeks to be an active Christian community/fellowship, bringing Christian witness and care to the town of Crewkerne and in the immediate vicinity from which it draws its congregation. The Church acknowledges its Christian responsibilities beyond the local community and, through its Mission giving, seeks to engage with situations both nationally and internationally.
As a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Church subscribes to the Union’s Declaration of Principle:
- That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws.
- That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who ‘died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again on the third day.’
- That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.
