Amazing Grace Baptist Church is a fellowship of all who profess faith in God’s amazing grace realized in Jesus Christ and seek to proclaim the Gospel to all nations, make disciples and offer Spirit filled worship services where participants encounter God’s presence for fullness of life (Matthew 28:18-20; John 10:10; Eph 2:8-9).
Identity and Uniqueness
Amazing Grace Baptist exists to provide a culturally sensitive and Spirit filled fellowship where our common identity in Christ reigns supreme. Thus, the Church provides a cultural atmosphere where God’s grace and beauty reflect in the life of all its members. Here, everybody feels welcome, accepted and belonged to worship God in their own culture and identity (Gal 3:28) and with their God given spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12). Both contemporary gospel songs and Baptist hymns are sung in contemporary melodies or styles. In this case, both spontaneous spirituality and reflective orderliness characterize our worship atmosphere. The youth and teens are also encouraged to communicate the gospel and also glorify God in the worshipping context through various platforms such as choreography and contextual gospel music.
As a newly established Church, Amazing Grace Baptist is afilliated to the Bund Evangelisch-Frei Baptisten Gemeinden, Deutschland and the Ghana Baptist Convention and with particular assistance from Christuskirche, Altona.
Ministerial Goals and Activities
We are a body of Christians where members are inspired and empowered to fulfil their evangelistic and stewardship mandate to the nations and cities, touching lives through discipleship and revival programmes that aim at helping members grow in Christlikeness. We also seek to teach both the members and non-members through training programmes to develop a balanced and biblical perspectives in the context of multiplicity of world views. Members become inspired to impact their generation (Matthew 25: 1-13).
The six core emphases of Amazing Grace Baptists thus include: Salvation by Grace through faith in Jesus Christ; Discipleship; Intercultural Ministry; Warmth Fellowship (Acceptance and Belongingness); Stewardship Excellence; and Holistic Mission (Integrating the great commandment with great commission)
