ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

A Definition Of Diverse

KCBC is a multi-cultural, multi-generational church, situated in the heart of London and seeking to live and proclaim the great news of Jesus to our city! 

We’re located just a few minutes’ walk from King’s Cross & St Pancras stations, in the bustling centre of our global, multi-everything capital!

Like the capital, our church community comprises people of every nation and all generations, from those who have recently moved to London to others who have lived here their whole lives.

We believe our diversity says something powerful and profound to this world: that people from every age group, nation and background are invited to be part of God’s family, through Jesus.

Currently, we have over thirty nationalities in our fellowship. And along with our English congregation, KCBC has a French speaking community for which you can find more details here. (link to Sunday services?)

What we believe

Our evangelical conviction means we believe Jesus is Good News for the world around us and that as His church we’re called to announce and demonstrate the reality of this Good News!

Our Baptist roots mean we believe in the call for personal conversion and discipleship of Christ, accompanied by baptism by immersion and the commission for the whole church to serve Jesus together in His mission in our 21st century, globalised urban context!

Our Vision

Our vision as a church is taken from Jesus’ offer to all people in John 10; “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full.”  

In these words Jesus offers new life, which goes on forever in a renewed heavens and earth AND a transformed life now in the present, as we grow in our relationship with Him and fulfill his purposes for us here on earth!

This means embarking on a journey of discipleship that embodies God’s Kingdom values of truth, justice, peace hope and love to the world around us, where we seek to put God and others above ourselves! 

It means living out this new life with each other, the church; a community of imperfect people journeying together on pilgrimage towards God’s glorious future for the whole world.

We know this doesn’t mean a problem-free life. But we are confident of God’s promise to be present with us in everything we face, working in us, through us, and around us as we follow Him and seek to see His goodness break into our world.

Partnering With Others

We also recognise that we are just one small part of God’s family here on earth and are committed to partnering with others as we serve God in His mission both here in London and beyond. At KCBC this includes groups such as Baptists Together, The London Baptist Association, Baptist Mission Society and Evangelical Alliance.  

As a church we align ourselves with the following statements of belief and major historical creeds.
