As the name suggests we are a church that is a union of two others. This happened in 1919 and means that we are part Baptist and part URC. Having said that we are a church family made up of people from all sorts of denominations, church backgrounds and no church background.
We are a medium-sized church (between 40 and 70 on a Sunday Morning) based in the Lincolnshire Wolds at Louth. We have a cross section of society worshipping with us from the young to the not so young! We aim in our teaching and worship to be Jesus focussed and relevant to the needs of the culture in which we live whilst being part of the tradition from which we have come.
Our beliefs are easily summed up in the three principles of faith:
- Jesus is the centre:
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 the liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His Laws.
- Faith is key:
We believe that followers of Jesus are 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’. We then try to live that out in our everyday lives by following the teaching of Jesus.
- We are mission-focussed:
That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelization of the world.
