Dawley Baptist Church
Within the Baptist Church every member has a right and duty to participate in the decisions of the church. We believe that as we gather as a body of people so together we can discern the will of God.
We also believed that there are certain people who have particular gifts of leadership and are elected by the members to meet together and ensure the church is well lead and uses its resources wisely.
