Shepshed Baptist Church

About Us - Who we are 


Our church is a caring church with a real sense of family and unity. We enjoy Praise and Worship in both music and singing with sound Bible teaching.  The ministry is firmly based on the authority of Scripture with an emphasis on evangelism and a vision for growth rather than ‘maintenance'. 

Our church is part of 'Churches Together in Shepshed', which consists of 4 churches in the town, Shepshed Baptist Church, St Botolph's (CofE), Christchurch Methodist Church and St Winefride's (Catholic). Representatives of the churches meet regularly to exchange views and information and to plan joint services and events such as the Lent Course and the 'Silent Walk of Witness' around Shepshed on Good Friday. 
We are part of the Soar Valley Gospel Partnership which also includes the following Baptist Churches -
Barrow, Castle Donnington, Hathern, Kegworth, Loughborough, Mountsorrel, Quorn, Rothley, and Sutton Bonnington.

We also belong to East Midlands Baptists (EMB) and The Baptist Union of Great Britain (BUGB) and follow their
Declaration of Principle
 The basis of this Union is:
1. That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His Laws.
2. That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who "died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again the third day".
3. That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelization of the world.
