About us

Why are we here?

Because we are committed to be God’s church in Buckskin to:

  • Show His Love – to those in the community;
  • Share His Message – with those around us;
  • Strengthen His People – to serve Him;
  • Support His Work – in His world.


What are we like?

Churches come in many flavours, largely reflecting the beliefs and practices of its members, or of the denomination to which it belongs. BEC is an independent Church in the evangelical protestant tradition. We hold to the Evangelical Alliance (UK) statement of faith (http://www.eauk.org/about/basis-of-faith.cfm) and regard the Bible as the final authority in all matters of faith and life. We would describe our worship style as lively, orderly and Spirit-filled and our teaching as contemporary, biblically-based. Don’t take our word for it however, come and join us for a service and see for yourself.

We are also engaged in many ministries across Basingstoke, co-ordinated by OneChurch Basingstoke.
