Baptist Churches are local organisations in a national and international fellowship.  In other words, we run (and fund) our own ministry in Muswell Hill for Muswell Hill as believers in Jesus from Muswell Hill, seeking guidance from the Scriptures with the aid of the Holy Spirit.  This gives us great advantages, some weaknesses and very many responsibilities - as set out in our constitution which describes how we 'do' church.  (In a nutshell we always need a lot of help from God and quite a lot from Muswell Hill!)
