Core Values of Our Church

  • “…You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-39
  • ” Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the orphan. Fight for the right of widows.” Isaiah 1:17
  • “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.” Matthew 25:35-36
  • “…Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. Don’t think only about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and what they are doing.” Philippians 2:3-4
  • “O people, the Lord has already told you what is good, and this is what he requires: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

Hatboro Baptist Church – A Non-Discrimination Policy

Throughout the history of Hatboro Baptist Church, we have sought to be an open and welcoming body to all who come. This practice is not based on the political climate, but in the nature of the Church. The Apostle Paul made it clear that in Christ there is no room for discrimination (Gal 3:28). Peter said that if God has declared a person clean, we cannot call them unclean (Acts 10:28). Through the generations we have embraced broad diversity of interpretation of scripture knowing that we gather not around disputable matters (Romans 14:1), but around the person of Christ.

And so, in the tradition of non-discrimination and faithfulness to the Body of Christ, in all facets of the life and ministry of our church, including but not limited to membership, baptism, ordination, marriage, teaching and committee/organizational leadership, Hatboro Baptist Church will not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental ability, nationality, or economic class. While we recognize that members hold different convictions and that faithful believers interpret the scriptures differently, as the Church of Jesus Christ we are united not by our adherence to a particular set of doctrinal beliefs, or by a single interpretation of scripture. We are made one by the Holy Spirit and our commitment to follow Jesus Christ and obey the New Commandment to love one another as Christ has loved us. This is what it means to be the church – diverse and respectful of God’s unique work in the life of every member.
