WHO WE ARE
Eldon Road Baptist Church is located in the heart of the Wood Green community. We welcome people who have a faith, those who don’t have one and people who want to explore who Jesus is.
We are ordinary people who follow an extraordinary God.
- Jesus gives us forgiveness for past mistakes, strength for each day, and a hope for the future. This is good news, and we want to share it with others.
- We believe that God speaks to people today – through the Bible, our fellow believers, and the Holy Spirit as we pray.
- We believe that God’s Holy Spirit lives in every believer, regardless of age, sex, race, disability, status or background.
- Worship does not just happen in church. We seek to be a supportive family – on a Sunday and throughout the week. We show God’s love to people in practical ways, to help them recognize and honour him, as God works with us in our world.
- As Baptists, we believe that baptism is an important public declaration for young people and adults who have chosen to trust and follow Jesus. We do not baptise (‘christen’) babies. We hold services to ‘bless’ them, as Jesus did.
Eldon Road Baptist Church is a member of the Evangelical Alliance and the London Baptist Association.
