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
“People don’t talk to each other anymore” is something we hear said from time to time, and I suppose it’s true.
Whereas people would stop and chat, even if it was only to pass the time of day, now there is largely silence, or we stand gazing at our phone or have our ear phones in listening to music. Is the art of conversation being lost? If so that would be a great shame and would also be to our detriment. What about prayer, speaking to God? When some of us were children our parents listened to our prayers or prayed with us every night before we went to sleep. I wonder if that still happens in many homes.
Prayer changes things and is something that we can all do on any subject, wherever we are and whatever our age. God listens to and answers prayer, sometimes in a way that surprises us. The Bible tells us to “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) God would love to hear from you today.
