The Church which meets at Chesterfield Hall is one of a group of evangelical, Bible-based churches, established and growing in many parts of the world, all holding the same beliefs and sharing a common purpose and practices.
We believe that God loved the human race which He had created, so much that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for us so that if we believe that, then we have our sins forgiven (see John 3:16 above). We try to follow the teachings of the New Testament about baptism and how the early churches were formed and functioned. We would not claim to do this perfectly.
Thought for the Month
It is honourable for a man to stop striving, since any fool can start a quarrel. (Proverbs 20:3)
How true that verse is; anyone can start a quarrel if they wish to, and very often we do. Very often it is about something so trivial it wasn’t worth it in the first place, but if disagreements are allowed to continue they can get out of hand and have lasting consequences, not only for those involved but others too. How many families have split because of two members disagreeing, worse still how many wars have started and how many lives lost?
With a little effort and restraint our lives and our world could be so different. Jesus’s words come to mind when He said, ‘A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another’ (John 13:34). A very tall order, one which we can never hope to match as we know how much He loved us, but we could at least have a try, getting on with each other and stopping arguing over trivia would be a start.
