WHAT WE BELIEVE:
We as Christians believe that people are brought into a right relationship with God by trusting in Jesus Christ (and no one else). For more detailed information on what we believe click-here. See also Coming-Home-to-God.
In the Baptist Church we believe in adult baptism in total immersion in water. We refer to it as Believers Baptism. It takes place in the baptismal pool in our church (it is normally kept covered over). There is nothing special about the water; it is heated to a comfortable temperature. The purpose of Believers Baptism is to testify publicly that a person is committed to following Jesus Christ and to serving God in the church and the world for the rest of his or her life.

Believers Baptism can also be carried out in a river, lake, the sea, or even in a swimming pool!
Goodmayes Baptist Church has level step-free access through out. It is all on the ground floor level. There is a toilet for wheelchair users at the main entrance to the church off Goodmayes Road.
