Kirkwall Baptist Church


We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the supreme authority on matters of faith and conduct and that individuals should read their Bible regularly. Those who preach or lead Morning and Evening Services at KBC may refer to a variety of different versions of the Bible but those used most frequently are the English Standard Version (ESV), the New International Version (NIV) and the New Living Translation (NLT).

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God."
John 1:1 (NIV)

Young folk at KBC have Crèche, Nursery, Sunday School and Bible Class as well as The Upper Room but even as adults we continue to study and learn more about God's word. For the main congregation, teaching in the Morning is supplemented by Study Notes that form the basis for mid-week study and discussion in Small Groups.

Private reading of the Bible is also very important. One book that some of the women in the congregation spent time reading and then discussed together was the Every Day with Jesus One Year Bible. Others may find that helpful too. The Mustard Seed Bookshop, next door to KBC, stocks or can order a range of bibles and other Christian texts that will further aid study and understanding.
