Selsdon Baptist - Launch  of Church Vision

Launch of the new Vision for Selsdon Baptist Church

Sunday 26th January was the launch day for our new church vision, an opportunity to focus how we see our priorities and service developing in Selsdon. The panels below  highlight some of the key messages from the day.

Our vision is about working together to love God and serve the community.

As part of our worship we heard testimony from some of our members.

In this way Selsdon Baptist Church aims to build a sacrificial and transformational community of disciples of Jesus Christ in Selsdon.

Diane’s message based on Phillipians chapter 2 highlighted how we are a people loved by God - part of the family. We should have the same mind as Christ and his likeness. We must run together , supporting each other. The love of Christ is powerful and active in us, looking to the interests of others, and helping us to learn to love God and serve the community.

We are God’s people, His church.

We must have a relationship with each other and with the community.

Listen to Diane’s message
