Chesterfield Baptist Church, est. 1857
Rooted in history, focused on the present, and looking to the future, Chesterfield Baptist's mission of taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the community and the world through relevant ministries of service continues as we embrace our community today.
God loves you with a love that can be found in no other person, place, or thing. God created you and all humanity to have a close, loving, personal relationship to Him. God wants you to more than merely know about Him. Jesus is God’s Good News “up close and personal”. He is the way to overcome every obstacle in life, even the ones we create and despite whatever current condition your life is.
We Believe In God the Father, creator and sustainer of the universe and all it contains. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise; infinite in holiness, and all perfection.
We Believe In Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, He perfectly revealed and was perfectly obedient to the will of God even to death on a cross for the sins of the entire human race. He arose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will come again at the end of the age.
We Believe In the Holy Spirit; the Spirit of God who guides, teaches, comforts, and empowers believers with spiritual gifts for worship, service, and evangelism.
We Believe In the Bible, God’s holy word, our sole authority for faith and practice. It is the perfect treasure of divine instruction, with God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth for its matter with Jesus Christ as the criterion by which it is interpreted.
We Believe In the Church, the body of Christ, which includes the redeemed of all ages but is primarily expressed as a local autonomous group of baptized believers, voluntarily coming together under the Lordship of Christ, and each member being equally responsible for worship, service, spiritual growth and the sharing of the gospel with all people.
We Believe In the sinfulness of human beings, who, though created in the image of God and endowed with freedom of choice, chose to sin against God and thus bring spiritual death and alienation from God upon the entire human family.
We Believe In Salvation offered freely to every human being by God’s undeserved favor through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord, by which we can become new, be adopted into God’s family and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live for the Glory of God, the betterment of the community of faith and the sharing of the Gospel with all people everywhere.
