Our Inclusive Church Statement
Shipley Baptist Church, Bradford “the church at the centre”
We believe in being an inclusive Church –
By this we mean we are striving to be a community of faithful disciples of Jesus who do actively wish to include people and not discriminate on any level on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality.
We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ, which is Scripturally faithful, which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.
