Loving God and loving your neighbour - all of the Law and Prophets hang on those two great commandments. They are, in essence, a summary of the Bible.
In this modern era, most people might think of love as a warm feeling, or as ‘being nice’ to somebody. In fact, one dictionary defines love as ‘to feel passionate devotion or tenderness’.
But love is more than a feeling... it is a commitment and a motivation that moves you to action. It has to do with putting in the time and effort and care that it takes to develop a real relationship - a connection - with God, with each other and with our community.
For us at Northcote Baptist Church, love involves supporting and serving each other. This makes Northcote Baptist Church a friendly, family orientated church made up of a diverse group of people - from all walks of life and many different nationalities - struggling together to follow Jesus in our world… in all of life.
We freely admit we’re far from perfect, but we’re committed to the goal of becoming - by God’s strength - more and more like the human beings God intends us to be.
