What We Believe


At Birmingham Church, we hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We are evangelical and are excited about the good news of Jesus Christ. We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time looking to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. We have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions and wrestle with difficult issues with grace and compassion.

We emphasize personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. Our aim is to glorify God in worship; introduce people to Jesus Christ through evangelism; help persons of all ages become deeply committed Christians through ministries of discipleship; build caring relationships and foster mutual ministry among the church family through authentic Christian fellowship; and to train, equip, inspire and mobilize our members to live out their faith in their everyday lives outside the walls of the church through ministries of service.
