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
The harvest is past. The summer is ended. And we are not saved. (Jeremiah 8:20)
Well here we are in September, the main harvest time is past, children are about to go back to school or for some, off to university. Time passes so quickly and sometimes we wonder where it has gone.
The words of Jeremiah speak of the year passing and still not being saved. The Bible tells us that we can be saved from God’s judgement if we want to, because he sent His Son to bear that judgement for us and save us from it. That is what being saved means, saved from God’s judgement.
The Bible tells us “Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). It’s pretty clear from that isn’t it that if you don’t believe then you won’t be saved from judgement. It gives a real sense of urgency to Jeremiah’s words doesn’t it, but you can do something about it before it’s too late, don’t forget times passes quickly.
