Welcome to Chester Baptist Church
“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive the forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Acts 26:18
HOW DID THE CHURCH BEGIN?
In October of 2003, under the ministry of Emmanuel Baptist Church of Newington, Connecticut, a Bible study began in Chester with the prayer that a Baptist church would one day be established. Several individuals and families from Chester, Huntington, and Blandford have been blessed with Biblical teaching and with godly fellowship as a result of this weekly Bible study. In June of 2004, the members of the Bible study voted to proceed with the establishment of Chester Baptist Church; and the Herr family immediately began making preparations to plant an independent Baptist church in Chester.
