We have recently received a number of enquiries relating to an American Fundamentalist Group called “Amazing Grace Baptist Church” who are seeking to set up in Melling. These individuals are not known to any of the mainstream Baptist Churches or organisations in the UK, and are operating independently. We would not wish to discredit this group in any way, but should make clear that they are not working under the auspices of any recognised UK validating body. We would encourage anyone wanting to become involved with “Amazing Grace” to make their own checks on their values and practices before doing so. BUGB and NWBA bear no responsibility for their activities, and would not wish to be associated with the extremist practices which “Amazing Grace” churches promote in USA.
The Baptist Union of Great Britain believe that people of all beliefs and backgrounds should be treated with dignity and respect, and that matters of religious difference should be adressed in a spirit of co-operation and mutual understanding.
