Baptist Place of Worship.
The following information has been kindly furnished by the minister, the “
terms of membership” being given in his own words:
GENERAL BAPTIST CHAPEL, Great Eastern-street, Shoreditch. Terms of Membership: “Belief in general redemption (that is, that Christ died for all), in opposition to particular redemption (that Christ died for a few). Also baptism by immersion.” All seats free. Supported by weekly voluntary offerings. While our membership is restricted to baptised believers our communion is quite open. All who love our Lord Jesus Christ are invited to sit down with us at His own table.
