who We are
Smithton Church is a Bible believing, Bible teaching church. We are made up of a wide range of people united together as a family by our belief in and desire to celebrate in and share the truth of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We join together to worship, serve and love God. Everything we do is defined and shaped by the Bible, which we consider to be the Word of God.
We are a member church of the Free Church of Scotland, but anybody is welcome to come to Smithton, whether you are looking for a new church, or especially if you have never been to church before.
What do we mean by a Bible believing, Bible teaching church?
We trust the Bible as our highest authority. To make sure we’re not making up our own interpretations or ideas of Christianity we bring all that we teach and do under the authority of Jesus Christ, as revealed to us in the Bible.
What normally happens in Smithton?
There’s lots happening at Smithton Church. Although we love to mix together for our Sunday and Wednesday worship and prayer meetings, we want to meet the particular needs of all the people in our church community. We do this by providing meetings and activities that suit all our different age groups, from the youngest to the oldest. We hope you’ll be able to find something to suit you.
Who are the “Free Church of Scotland”?
As a member church of the Free Church of Scotland we are; Presbyterian, meaning we have the support and encouragement of a host of other churches who also benefit from partnership with us, we are reformed in theology, which means that we trust the Bible as our supreme authority, being the only way for us to know God through Jesus Christ, and we are also evangelical in that we believe in sharing the story of Jesus Christ, his life, death and resurrection with everyone we know.
