Baptist churches

Baptists form the fifth largest Christian church in the world with about 40 million members worldwide.


The Baptist church traces its origins to the sixteenth century when a Church of England minister, John Smyth, performed a radical and scandalous act of baptising himself and the congregation.

It restored and recovered the ancient practice of the church which was to baptise by full immersion in water. Baptists reject infant baptism, thinking instead that baptism is for believers only - those who can personally declare Jesus as Lord. Baptists believe that the Bible shows us God's way for living.

Baptists are congregational: each church is self-governing and self-supporting, but Baptists believe that churches should not live in isolation but be interdependent. Most Baptist churches belong to the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
