The Bible is God’s life giving, life changing truth.
The words of the Bible are not
just words written by men.
These words are completely inspired by God
to show us that we can live life to the full in
Jesus Christ. Through the authority of the
Bible we are challenged to live out its truth
and are motivated to share that
truth with others. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
God’s truth is relevant and applicable to
our changing world. To reach our present culture
we will practice a willingness
to change our methods, yet,
never compromise God’s truth. (Psalm 51: 6)
Banwell Community Church is filled
with imperfect people connecting with
one another as a means to grow in our
relationship with Christ and His church and to
fulfill His perfect mission. (Acts 2: 42-47)
Missional service is following Christ’s example
of service by putting other’s needs above
our own in order to share God’s love
and transform the world.
(Matthew 28: 16-20; John 13: 12-17)
Worship is not a magical word. Worship is a
lifestyle that reflects what you truly love.
Genuine worship is God-ward. It is both personal
and collective. Although worship is not about us,
we connect with God by responding to
Him through worship and by this we experience
His power and presence. We say it this way:
“Worship is all we are responding to all HE is.”
(Psalm 95: 6-7; John 4:24)
The Church is a body of transformed people
who are continually being transformed into the
image of Christ by pursuing the life of holiness.
At the same time, the church is called to transform
the world around us by loving and accepting people,
caring for them, and helping them grow in faith.

The Bible does not tell us to use only certain styles of music, or
to present our message only through words.
The Bible does make it clear, however, that we are to find ways
to effectively bring the message “into all the world”
in order to make disciples. We believe this
requires us to examine everything we
do - new practices and old - and a willingness
to change when necessary within biblical
parameters, in order that we,
“by all possible means might save some.”
(1 Corinthians 9:22)
