Auldhouse Community Church is an evangelical, community-based church. We seek to be grounded in the “good news” (the root of the word evangelical ), which for us is found in relationship with a person (Jesus Christ) and is founded on the authority of the Bible as the written Word of God. For us therefore, having a relationship with Jesus Christ, a faith founded on the Bible and to be involved in sharing this good news with the world are the essential marks of being a Christian.Read more
The basis for their unity was expressed in what they referred to as their “common life” in Christ. Each local congregation looked to Jesus Christ as its head, was autonomous (self-governing) and was led by a plurality of leaders (called elders & pastors). They encouraged each member to serve in ministry using the gifts and abilities given by the Lord, through the Holy Spirit.
We rejoice in the fact that God continues to bring us into contact with new individuals and families so that we can share with them the good news of what Christ has done on our behalf and what he is continuing to do every day in our lives and in his world.
While not operating directly under any denominational body, we nevertheless seek to function inter-dependently with all churches who are in general agreement with our statement of faith and core values. Specifically, we are participating members of the Scottish Network of Churches, CAIRN and ALPHA Scotland.
