Logo (until September 2006)

We were often asked about the words and imagery of the Logo and Vision Statement (see above) which we used until September 2006. You can find references to the words in this logo at two different points in the Bible.

In one, a man called Ezekiel is shown the Temple (where he worshipped God) restored from a state of devastation to its former glory. As he looks more carefully, he notices that a stream flows out from the heart of the Temple into the surrounding desert. As it flows, it turns from a stream, into a river, and eventually into a torrent. The effects of this pure water are so great that it brings life into the barren desert and turns the salt water at its mouth into fresh water. Along its banks grow trees "whose leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing". (Ezekiel 47 v.12)

Several hundred years later, a Christian believer serving out his last days in a Roman penal colony was given a similar vision. In this case he was shown a new world to follow the collapse of this one. At the heart of that new world was a River of Life, along whose banks were trees whose leaves were "for the healing of the nations." (Revelation 22 v.2)

As individuals, we want to be like the man in Psalm 1 who is commended because he is "like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither."


It is our desire that Teddington Baptist Church might be a similar source of life and healing in this riverside community.
