In common with other Baptist churches, we believe baptism is commanded by Christ for those who make a personal commitment to him. We therefore practice Believer's Baptism out of obedience; this is by full immersion.



On the birth of a child we offer a thanksgiving or dedication service.



Church Membership is open to all who have made a personal commitment to Christ and who want to make Castle Vale Baptist Church their spiritual home. People usually want to attend for some weeks or months before asking to become a member.

A person can become a member following Believer's Baptism, by profession of faith and/or transfer.

New members are received in to fellowship at a Communion Service where they are asked to publicly reaffirm their faith.

Guidance notes about membership are available on request.
