What we believe
What we believe is important because it has a direct relationship to and influence over what we do.
We pray because we believe that God hears and answers our prayers. We forgive others because we believe that God in his mercy has forgiven us of so much more. I could go on but I think you would agree that what we believe affects our whole life and that one belief by necessity affects other beliefs. We do not believe anything in isolation.
A.A. Hodge "The doctrines of the Bible are not isolated but interlaced; and the view of one doctrine must necessarily affect the view taken of another."
Therefore it is important that the doctrine we follow is full and sound
Joseph Irons said, "Let us embrace the whole truth, or renounce Christianity altogether".

The Church also provides many Christian resources free of charge at Watton on the Web.
Although there is much more information available you may find the following particularly interesting
Christian Clipart - providing clipart for churches to use free providing they are not part of anything that is resold.
A Question of Ethics - As we look at the subject of ethics it is important that we are able to
define what we mean. William Barclay says, "If you want to put it in one sentence, ethics is the science of behaviour. Ethics is the bit of religion that tells us how we ought to behave."
The Drug Fact File - A Guide for worried parents, teenagers who are using drugs or thinking about using drugs and anyone who wants to know more about the subject.
Surviving Together - We hope that "SURVIVING TOGETHER" will enable those working in the field to play a significant part in helping to protect children, to pastor wisely and to provide inspiration and support to survivors of abuse.
