St John's Church, Carlton-in-Lindrick

Your Kingdom Come

God is known as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Father… love, caring for each person as God's loved child.

Son… he revealed himself as the historical person of Jesus Christ, whose life, death and resurrection holds the key to knowing God, and to making sense of life, before and after death.

…and Holy Spirit… alive, loving and active today. Sustaining life, giving spiritual gifts to the church and bearing his spiritual fruit in the world - changed lives and a transformed society.

We believe that God has given us good news in Jesus Christ

Jesus Is the Life

The Bible tells us that Jesus came to take us who were dead in our sins and bring us back to life (Eph. 2:5). He accomplishes this for those who believe in Him through His own death and resurrection. By dying and rising again to life, Jesus pays for the sins of the faithful and removes the consequence of sin, which is death. This is the life-giving message that Christians possess and must declare to a dying world. The great news we must announce is that whoever believes in Jesus will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

We believe that, through Christ, God can be known as our heavenly Father, and that through the Holy Spirit we may trust, love and worship him.
We believe that through the Bible, God teaches us what to believe about him, how to live for him.
We believe that the world's greatest need is to hear and respond to this good news.

Christianity is about relationship and community

The best way to find out about faith and prayer, to raise questions or get help, is to meet some Christians.
St John’s is just one of the Christian churches in this area; we seek to work alongside other Christian churches and denominations.

Learn more about God (as he is in Jesus) by reading the Bible 
eg the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament?

We want to be a church that most importantly listens to God. As a result the Leadership Team have been meeting every 4-6 weeks since the Away Day to formulate a vision of where we believe God wants to take the church.
