Our Vision Statement

"Reclaiming Ground and Restoring Hope through the power of our Lord Jesus Christ"

2019 GBC Motto

Don’t be afraid! Speak Out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you… (Acts 18:9-10)

Though a vision given directly to the apostle Paul, it is also a word for the people of GBC for this season. We are to be a people who speak out for the Lord. The speaking out about the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ should be the core of our daily lives. There are more people for the Kingdom of God than we know. We should not be afraid and most certainly not silent! Silence is what helps Satan advance. So let's thank God that He is with us and live our lives in that truth.

Multi-ethnic Church

In the Spring 2018 edition of the Baptist Together magazine, the focus is on multi-ethnic church. Given where GBC has come from and where it is now, Pastor David was asked to contribute an article of our multi-ethnic journey. Other churches within the Baptist family tell their story too, which you will find of interest. Please click this link and enjoy the read.

Greenford Baptist Church Children's Ministry Vision

Vision Statement

The Children’s Ministry will be a place where:-

The leaders will:

  • be trained
  • be supported
  • pray and be prayed for

The children will: feel loved

  • learn about God
  • see God at work
  • experience God in their lives

We need to increase our expectations of children in their relationship with God.


Basic Beliefs

"Repent and be baptised everyone of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off – for all whom the Lord our God will call” Acts 2:38 and 39

We believe that:

  • children can be born again
  • children are an equal part of the family of God
  • God can give children spiritual gifts and enable them to use them
  • children can be given responsibilities
  • children can be challenged to live out their faith
  • children need more than just Bible stories they need to know the relevance and application to their lives
  • parents and the home should be the main faith learning ground for children of Christian parents
  • children in church need to be taught/cared for in church by people:-
  1. with a calling to do so
  2. who love and respect children
  3. who receive training and support to do so to the best of their God given ability

“If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Matthew 18 v.6

  • children should be ‘safe to grow’ i.e. protected from harmful influences and abuse – mental, physical, sexual, neglectful and spiritual.

Characteristics of the Children’s Ministry

Children

“From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger” Psalms 8:2

  • to feel loved and cared for and treated equally
  • to enjoy themselves at church activities and want to come
  • to learn about God
  • to provide an environment where children can make a commitment to God and be supported having done so
  • for them to know how to live out their faith
  • for both the children and adults to expect God to use the children for His Glory

Children’s Ministry Co-ordinator/Group

  • to have a vision of what God wants for the children’s work and share that with others

Parents
