all of His Grace.
Whether you are a Christian looking for a Church committed to teaching God's Word or someone who is looking for answers, I believe that you have come to the right place to learn what God has to say in His Word, concerning Himself, ourselves and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are an Independent Reformed Baptist Church and are not governed by a denomination or a body of Churches. We do however have fellowship with like minded Independent Reformed Churches.
We embrace the great Biblical Doctrines of the Protestant Reformation, sometimes referred to as the "Doctrines of Grace" and most fully expressed in the London Confession of Faith of 1689.
We believe that God's purpose for us as His Church is to glorify Him, the God of the Scriptures.
Firstly by promoting His acceptable worship and preaching the Gospel of God's Sovereign Grace.
Secondly we are committed to the proclamation of God's perfect Law and the glorious Gospel of His grace through all the world and to the defence of the "Faith which was once for all delivered unto the saints".
We believe the supreme Authority of the Bible, which is the Word of God and also called the Scriptures. They are the only rule of faith and practice for our lives. As Christians the Bible is necessary to guide in all aspects of life, and in what we are to believe and know about God, man and salvation.
We believe that our very existence and purpose as a Church is founded upon five distinct principles that are found in the Bible and these are:
1. To proclaim the fundamental doctrines of the faith and to proclaim that salvation is solely by the "grace of God alone" (Sola Gratia).
2. To proclaim that salvation that is brought about through "Faith Alone" (Sola Fide) and not by works.
3. To proclaim that salvation is in "The Lord Jesus Christ alone", (Solo Christo).
4. To proclaim that Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ comes from hearing and reading the "Scriptures alone" (Sola Scriptura).
5. To live our lives and exist before the world for the "Glory of God alone". (Sola Deo Gloria)
Above all, we hope that you will be encouraged as you read more about the Church, and use the good resources made available to you on this website.
We would be greatly encouraged by your visit to the Church and we hope that you will find Bennetts End Reformed Baptist Church a very warm Church, that is dedicated to the God of the Bible and His glory as is revealed through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, who died and gave Himself for His people.
So welcome on behalf of all the Church Members,
With warm greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ.

"Daily Rememberancer" A book of morning and evening devotional comments by a pastoral predecessor of C H Spurgeon. John Thackway in the foreword writes, `Preachers will find Smith's terse and orderly style enormously suggestive for sermon outlines . . . and all believers will be amazed at the fresh shafts of light that fall upon familiar themes.'
