fyi: The History of Chesterton Southern Baptist Church

July 2018 marks the 27th year since a Chesterton mission was started by Valparaiso Baptist Church in 1991. The mission officially became a church about one year later. Members named it Chesterton Southern Baptist Church.

Pastor Rick Henderson  has led Chesterton Southern Baptist the entire time.

The building  was built with much donated help in 1955 by the late Rev. James C. Mills. Other congregations met there between 1955 and 1991. But they each disbanded in their own time and the building was available when Chesterton Southern Baptist Church formed.



fyi: What are the church offices?

Deacon  ...

  • These godly and faithful men are not novices when it comes to faith in Christ
  • You can call upon a deacon when there is a need of any kind
  • They free up the pastor more for Bible study and prayer
  • There are four deacons here to serve you

Trustee  ...

  • These people take care of the building and grounds
  • Like deacons, they are nominated and later voted upon during a business meeting

Worship Leader  ...  

  • This person leads in the glorifying of Christ through music
  • He also guides the service along through its various parts
  • He sits across from the pastor on Sundays
  • This position is more commonly known as the Song Leader




  • Grab a  bulletin  and a  master prayer request sheet  at the back of the sanctuary
  • Browse the church library and maybe borrow a book or some music for a week or two
  • May you receive a blessing from attending

“And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”
