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
‘They risked their lives’
Long ago Israel’s King David and his army were at war with the Philistines. He became so thirsty that he said he longed for a drink from the well of Bethlehem. This was behind enemy lines, but despite that, three of his men were so devoted to him that they broke through the lines, went to the well and brought him a drink from it.
David refused it because he viewed it ‘like the blood of these men who risked their lives to get it for me.’ (2 Samuel 23 v 17)
This is the month that we especially remember those who went the extra mile for us in war. Out of devotion to their country and the people in it they risked their lives and many died defending those they loved. We do well to remember and give thanks for them.
Like them, out of love for us Jesus went the extra mile too in giving His life. At this time of remembrance let us give thanks for Him too.
