What we believe

At Buckingham Chapel, we believe the following in relation to…

The Bible

Its divine inspiration and infallibility as originally given; its authority and sufficiency not only as containing but in itself being the word of God and our sole authority in matters of faith and conduct


That He exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; that these three are one God; that He is sovereign in creation, redemption, providence and judgement


The sinfulness of human nature as a consequence of the fall in Eden; the necessity of all to be born again

The Lord Jesus Christ

His true and proper deity; His virgin birth; His real and perfect humanity; His vicarious sufferings and death; His bodily resurrection; His ascension into heaven; His present priestly intercession for His people


The justification of the sinner solely by faith in the atoning work of our Lord and Saviour  Jesus Christ and His death on the cross

The Church

That the local church consists of all those who have been born again by the Holy Spirit and made new creatures in Christ; that the local church has liberty under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to interpret the laws of Christ, and is thus sufficient under Him for the ordering of its life in obedience to His will.  

The Sacraments

In the observance of believers baptism by immersion as a divinely ordained institution, but not as conveying any regenerating grace; the observation of the Lord’s Supper as a commemoration of our Lord’s death, but not as being a sacrifice for sin, nor as involving any change of substance of the bread and wine


In the resurrection of the body; the judgement of the whole world by our Lord Jesus; the eternal bliss of the righteous; the eternal punishment of the wicked; the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ in glory
