Baptist Union of Scotland
Whyte's Causeway Baptist Church are an active member of the Baptist Union of Scotland, a Union of approx 115 Churches throughout Scotland with a membership of over 20,000. We are a congregational, confessional, protestant group of Christians who focus on the centrality of allowing will and purpose of Jesus to be discerned by the local congregation for their own context, whilst remaining accountable to the larger body.
Baptists are Christians who belong to the world's largest mainstream Protestant denomination. They are to be found in over 200 countries throughout the world. They are not a sect or cult group, nor are Baptists an import from America.
Before Baptists emerged in the United States, they were to be found in Britain and Europe. Baptist churches arose out of the Anabaptist movement of the Reformation period. They began in England in the early 17th century and in Scotland in the middle of the 18th century.

A Baptist Confession of Faith and Principle
As Baptist Christians we declare:
- That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws.
- That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who 'died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again the third day'.
- That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.
