Wollaston Baptist Church Ethos Statement

The ethos of Wollaston Baptist Church is our motivation for all our work – it is the reason why we do what we do. It is to work together to extend the Kingdom of God on earth as taught by Jesus Christ through the scriptures which is salvation through faith alone, through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, by living out a lifestyle of love, truth, justice, mercy and forgiveness, according to his teaching. We are inspired by his message, life and example through which God’s unconditional love for all people is expressed.

While this ethos is given life through our relationships, our relationships – the way we work together and behave with one another – are a demonstration and authentication of our ethos. It is through these relationships, with each other and those whom we seek to serve, that we practise our ethos.

Our ethos or motivation, and therefore our relationships, are rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ and in his love, which compels us to serve others, putting their needs first. When we work together it is this faith which directs and influences both our internal relationships as well as our work with those whom Wollaston Baptist Church is seeking to serve.

In this way Wollaston Baptist Church operates on the understanding that our activities are simply an outworking of our faith; that our ‘doing’ derives directly from our ‘being’. There is an essential and indissoluble link between the inner and the outer, the private life and the public face of Wollaston Baptist Church. The link between who we are and what we do cannot be broken.
