About Us

Shining Light Baptist Church stands on the King James Version of the Holy Bible and we use The Word of God “in spirit and in truth”.

We Are An Independent Church
We are free from all outside control or denominational hierarchy and acknowledge our direct responsibility to the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
See: Colossians 1:18

We Are A Fundamental Church
We take The Bible literally. We believe the Scriptures are inerrant, the authority for our faith and practice, and applicable for our daily lives. We hold to the fundamentals of the Christian faith including the verbal inspiration of scripture, the virgin birth, the Deity of Christ, His sacrificial death and blood atonement for our sins, His bodily ressurection from the dead, the depravity of man and salvation by grace through faith.
See: 2 Timothy 3:16

We Are A Baptist Church
We believe and practice the Scriptures. We believe in Salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone, as a free gift, then baptism by immersion should follow. We hold to the Baptist Distinctives without apology.
See: Ephesians 2:8-9; Matthew 28:19

We Are An Evangelistic Soul Winning Church
Our mission is to reach people for Jesus Christ and we endeavour to obey this command by our soul-winning programs.
See: Acts 1:8

We Are A Church with Christ Honoring Music
Our desire is to glorify the Lord and minister to people by bringing them into an attitude of worship through hymns and music that uplifts Jesus Christ.
See: Psalms 69:30; Psalms 100:2-4

We Are A Separated Church
We are separated from religious ecumenical inclusivism encouraging believers to live a life of personal separation from a wordly lifestyle and doctrine. We believe in the doctirne of separation.
See: 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

We Are A Missionary Church
We believe a scriptural church must obey the Great Command, “…Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
