What sort of Church are we?
Nailsea Baptist Church is part of the Christian Church in Nailsea and co-operate enthusiastically with friends in the other Christian communities, sharing in joint initiatives.
The Bible shows us that God is a God of relationships. The Trinity demonstrates the relationship between God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Church life reflects this. So as a church …
We organise social events that provide people an opportunity to have fun and get to know each other in a non-threatening environment.
We offer introductory courses geared to the needs of those seeking to explore Christianity and provide opportunities for questions and discussion.
We provide a range of worship and learning activities suitable for all age-groups. We encourage a deepening understanding of the Christian faith and an increasing commitment to Jesus Christ.
We're a friendly and relaxed community and are used to welcoming visitors and helping them feel at ease.
We enjoy singing to God's praise. Our talented musicians lead us in modern worship songs and older hymns, sometimes upbeat and triumphant, sometimes quiet and reflective.
What we Believe
We believe that God is as real today as he ever has been. Around 2000 years ago he showed his love to humankind when he sent his son Jesus into the world to live and die for us. God continues to offer his love to us today and he continues to touch and change the lives of those who are open to him.
We believe that the Bible is God's (relevant) Word to us today. So what we teach and how we aim to live centres around that. We are continually discovering that new friends to our church are amazed at how relevant the Bible is to modern-day living.
We try to make the link between God's truth, which doesn't change, and our constantly changing world with all its dilemmas.
The Bible teaches that God is gracious and giving, full of love and truth. God changes peoples lives, bringing wholeness and hope, restoring joy and peace, providing focus and purpose.
