Who We Are

KING’S BAPTIST CHURCH is a lively and friendly bunch of believers belonging to the Ground Level Network and the East Midlands Baptist Association. Our goal is to see all people connected to God the Father. We want to help and support you realise and reach your potential in and through Him & we’re crazy enough to believe that together, we can build a better future where heaven shapes and structures our cultures. We’re all about building ‘local church’ and we will do everything in our power to support you in your decision to follow Jesus. We’ll give you the options to grow, to learn, we’ll put tools in your hands, we’ll coach you, mentor you and equip you to get and stay connected within the family of God.

The church was founded in February 1988 as a plant from Grimsby New Life (now City Church). God thrilled us as He proved His presence with us and we subsequently planted various expressions of His Kingdom in the area including a social enterprise organisation providing for the homeless, a Christian school in 1992 and from the school a further church plant sixteen miles south of Cleethorpes, near Louth. These ministries continue to be successful autonomous charities and God continues to astound us with His grace and goodness.

OUR VISION: To see people encounter Jesus, be equipped by Jesus & empowered to serve Jesus.

OUR FAITH STATEMENT: To live by Faith as a voice of Hope… known by Love.

The primary objectives that fuel that vision and faith statement are…

A WORSHIPING CHURCH: We have a heart for authentic worship that is marked by awe and reverence and yet which is full of joy and thanksgiving.

A PRAYING CHURCH: We believe that prayer is our highest privilege and our most necessary duty & our prayer takes place within a relevant and inspiring context.

A SPIRIT FILLED CHURCH: We believe the Holy Spirit is our inspiration, giving direction and motivation through the Bible, gifts and the fruit. (Gal. 5:22)

A BIBLICAL CHURCH: We believe that the Bible is God’s word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to all that we do. It crosses all barriers of age, gender, race and social class where the church is willing to serve one another with the love of Jesus.

AN EVANGELISING CHURCH: We believe in the commission of Jesus… That ALL of God’s people are His representatives influencing their world. Our passion is to see God build His church and release all people into their full potential, plan and purpose in Him.

A MISSION MINDED CHURCH: Our mission is to go into the entire world to see God’s Kingdom established across the earth.

A RESOURCE CHURCH: We are working with and supporting other Christian Churches and groups locally to influence our community and region with the love of God.
