Statement of Faith

At Portico Church we fully subscribe to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith 

You can read the full confession here: London Baptist Confession of Faith (1689)

Much like the historic creeds, confessions are useful statements of the Christian faith that help to shape and define the affirmations of a local Christian worship community. Confessions differ from creeds in that they express specific doctrinal views, define the number and nature of the sacraments to be celebrated, and set forth the ecclesiology of the body that affirms them. Confessions are subject to the final authority of Scripture and are only profitable as they conform to God's Word.

The ultimate aim of a confession is purity of doctrine and the unity of the local church.
