We are Pollards Hill Baptist Church
Loving God & Loving Others
God’s Faithfulness through the Generations (1940 – 2020)
Our purpose as a local church is to teach God’s truth through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. The worship at PHBC is based on three core values of being loving, courageous and kind. We are a mixed bunch from different walks of life and culturally diverse backgrounds – following Jesus, God’s word, and biblical principles.
As a church, we are a joyful congregation and are regularly organising church lunches, bring and share meals, film nights and worship evenings. Prayer, fellowship and reaching out to the community are all of great importance to us. We have a thriving Little Church and feel engaging young people in our worship and mission is pivotal.
Pollards Hill and far beyond
As a church, we firmly believe that we are here to demonstrate the love of Jesus, in the first place, within the local community of Pollards Hill. This is as part of our efforts to live out Jesus’s commandment to love God with all we are – heart, soul and mind, and love others in the way we love ourselves. We are simply seeking to live out the love we have received.
Raising disciples, reaching the world
As a church we seek to love and embrace our community while shining the light of Christ in our world. We are a loving and inclusive church family who believe in walking and thriving in the freedom God has given to us through the sacrifice of His son Jesus Christ. More than this, we believe in the Great Commission of Matthew 28:16-20, to go and be witnesses of the great gift of the gospel.
More than ordinary feelings
Belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is central to our faith as Christians. We believe that Jesus is God’s Son, who reveals to us that God is our Father, and that God is available to us through the Holy Spirit. Our faith as Christians is not the figment of human minds and there are many signs of God’s existence and handiwork throughout the wonder of creation. Beyond this, we have the faith we do because through Jesus Christ, God came to seek us out and through the bible, He has made Himself known to us.
