History of the Baptist Church
The roots of the Baptist movement date back to
the sixteenth century although the first Baptist
congregation appeared in Holland in the year

the blind, and makes those who are bent stand
Praise the Lord,O you who
dwell on Earth, young and old together!
Let us
praise the name of the Lord.

In the Baptist Church Baptists only receive the
Body of Christ twice a month.

particular responsibility for preaching, teaching
and pastoral care. Working alongside these
ministers are also decons
