Mission, Vision and Values

Our Mission Statement

Walmer Baptist Church is a Christian community for the community, in the community. 

Our Vision Statement

We are a church seeking to share God’s love with everyone.

As the Bible encourages us, we do this by telling the good news of God’s love for all people through our own experiences and encounters with our creator God, our loving Saviour, Jesus Christ, and the enabling Spirit.

Our aim is to be a community that nurtures, supports and encourages one another and offers a welcome to all. Through worshipping, praying, studying and our community activities we seek to grow in our faith and in numbers.

Our Values (and those of BUGB)

A Prophetic Community : Following Jesus in confronting evil, injustice and hypocrisy. Challenging worldly concepts of power, wealth, status and security.

An Inslusive Community : Following Jesus in transcending barriers of gender, language, race, class, age and culture. Identifying with those who are rejected, deprived and powerless.

A Sacrificial Community : Following Jesus in accepting vulnerability and the necessity of sacrifice. Seeking to reflect the generous, life-giving nature of God.

A Missionary Community : Following Jesus in demonstrating in word and action God’s forgiving and healing love. Calling & enabling people to experience the love of God for themselves.

A Worshipping Community : Following Jesus in engaging in worship and prayer which inspire and undergird all we are and doExploring and expressing what it means to live together as the people of God, obeying his Word and following Christ in the whole of daily life.
