Everyone is welcome

At Portrack Baptist Church we celebrate God’s outrageous love and radical welcome. We believe that following Jesus is an adventure to which all are welcome. We are confident in this as coming from many different backgrounds, nations and circumstances each of us has found a place and a welcome at Portrack but more importantly we have found a place and a welcome in God through Jesus. 

We believe that all people are made in the image of God and as such are worthy of respect and dignity and that we are called to be a church that offers welcome and acceptance to all people regardless of our differences. We are therefore committed to the love and inclusion of all people, affirming diversity in gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age, physical ability, learning ability, and mental health.

In our strapline, Summoned to Serve, we aim to describe what we believe as we live for and follow Jesus in a changing and sometimes confusing world. We are committed to serving God, each other and the community; we believe that the love of God can transform situations, people and nations and want to share how wide and long and high and deep God’s love is.

Portrack Baptist Church sits on the outskirts of Stockton, and at the edge of the Portrack Estate, and we feel an affinity with and for those who feel like they are on the margins of society and perhaps also on the margins of church.  If that is you then we would love to welcome you to our church.
