St Johns Park Baptist Church believes in the importance of gospel proclamation, sharing what our Lord has mercifully shown us through His Word. We believe that the gospel is the power of God for salvation and that the Church, as ambassadors of Christ, have been given the charge to proclaim this ministry of reconciliation.
As such, we regularly have teams go out on the street to proclaim the good news that whilst we are naturally sinners, rebels opposed to God, deserved of judgement and wrath, that God sent a Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way of salvation, the only way to God the Father, and all who believe and trust in Him as Lord and Saviour will be saved of the wrath which is destined for those who find themselves outside of Christ.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!”
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,
Fortnightly, on Saturday.

“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”
– Charles Spurgeon
