What We Believe

Seion is an independent reformed evangelical Baptist church.

We’re independent – We don’t belong to any denomination. Our church membership has the final say in the major decisions that we need to make in the life of our church.

We’re reformed and evangelical – We believe the Bible has been given by inspiration of God, and is infallible. It teaches us that humankind has rebelled against God, a rebellion the Bible calls ‘sin’. As a result of sin, we are all separated from God. But the Bible also teaches us that Jesus, the Son of God, changes the lives of all who put their faith in him, by delivering them from the power of sin.  Jesus is God, and came into the world through a supernatural conception.  Through his death on the cross at Calvary, Jesus took upon himself the punishment we deserve. Because of Jesus’ bodily resurrection we can know that those who trust in him God will forgive and will accept as his own people. We believe that it is God who calls us to put our trust in Christ, and because it is God who provided forgiveness and cleansing from sin through Jesus Christ, he will sustain all those who turn to him, transforming their lives and giving them a sense of his peace and joy. We believe that Jesus is coming again to judge all humankind. All those who trust in Christ will enjoy fellowship with God, forever. The condemnation of God will fall on the unrighteous and they will be eternally separate from God.

We are a Baptist church – meaning that we only baptise those who truly believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

We are affiliated to the Associating Evangelical Churches of Wales (AECW), and hence also to Affinity, and our statement of faith is the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith (with a few minor amendments).
