What we believe is historic Reformed Christianity see What we believe and Fuller Statement We are not
a sect but ordinary Christians. Who are we
Why then do we meet in homes? The reason for this is partly historical. Some of us were in Largo Baptist church, but due
to the following circumstances outwith our control. We have found that it is more effective to meet in homes to study and pray together. Our Pastor John ministers and helps us to grow and bear witness to Christ where we are.
Events that brought us to where we are at present
- The building was not suitable for purpose. Poor fire escape & one toilet & poor parking.
- A previous incurred 'Pension debt' was laid at
our door. This caused giving to 'dry up' and the building becoming not financially viable with no income.
- We left the building to meet in a more suitable place
- Many of the traditional Baptists decided to leave. We were given no reason as
to why people left. Only a few of us remained.
- Eventually new people came & wanted us to become more Ecumenical linking with those who deny many of the fundamentals of the faith.
- It was obvious that a bad spirit had entered, so the leadership
expressed, after a considerable time of prayer & reflection, that we could no longer continue but wanted to give those who desired to go down that path and expressed their unhappiness with the more biblical & reformed emphasis of the leadership, the
freedom to do as they wanted. We did not desire to stand in their way but could not move with them.
- We also wanted to leave to leave in love & fellowship, but sadly we were prevented fron doing that by the more vocal and expressive elements of
those that remained.
- We started to meet in various homes, content to rest in Him for our future.
- Despite all of this in the Providence of God we now have a clearer vision for our World-wide ministry and our sermons are listened to all over
the globe and our other site www.love-divine.co.uk is reaching many and encouragine our daily witness amongs our friends and neighbours.
We may be and have been, critised by some and called a 'Holy
Huddle' - however to be perfectl y truthful, we don't mind the occasional 'huddle' and are glad that our critics see us as 'Holy'..we are humbled by that 'compliment' - thank you!
We realise also that is a steady trend today as so many denominations
are compromising and many Christians are being forced to meet in homes or rented halls to maintain a measure of purity.
