Contemporary worship for the whole family
We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
While people of all sexual orientation are welcome to attend Hamilton South Baptist, we affirm a New Testament scriptural model of marriage. This means a God ordained covenantal relationship as described by Jesus in Matthew 19:4-5.
4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ (NIV)
In line with the Baptist Union of New Zealand, Hamilton South Baptist is an egalitarian church. This means that we fully support and endorse women in any and all roles within the church. This includes but is not limited to being Pastors and elders.
