Help us Make the World Better
Everyone wants the World to be a better place.
Everyone would love to be part of making it better.
But for most people it's hard to know what we can do.
At the Baptist Church in Gildersom we work together to make the World a better place.
you can join us and help us do that.
It's one thing to make the claim - but how do we do it?
We follow the age old teaching of the Bible as our guide.
First we TRY to be better ourselves - not easy, but we ask God to help us and we encourage one another.
Then we try to make our community a better place by the events we organise and are part of in Gildersome.
Next we work to make things better for the poorest and most in need across West Yorkshire and the World.
THAT EVERYONE IS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD AND IS PRECIOUS.
THAT EVERYONE IS WELCOMED BY GOD AND BY US.
THAT EVERYONE HAS A PART TO PLAY IN REMAKING THE WORLD AS GOD INTENDED IT TO BE.
THE POOREST PEOPLE IN SOCIETY ARE MOST IMPORTANT IN GOD'S EYES, SO OUR JOB IS TO HELP THEM IN EVERY WAY WE CAN
GOD MADE THE UNIVERSE FOR US TO ENJOY. BUT WE HAVE EXPLOITED IT AND WE CAN MAKE THE PLANET BETTER - TOGETHER.
THERE WAS NOT ONE PERSON WHOM JESUS TURNED AWAY. SO WE WELCOME EVERYONE TO JOIN US AS WE TRY TO FOLLOW JESUS..
Like all Churches we have a lot of events. Some we organise ourelves. Others are run by community groups who use our buildings.
