Prayers for our Country and World

The church is closed for two weeks, the weeks of March 22 & March 29, 2020. May God bless us all and keep us safe. ALMIGHTY God has us under his protection no matter what happens. He is our rock. God loves us! His Word is our anchor. Hopefully services will resume April 5. Let us pray together that our time apart will only last until then. JESUS CHRIST is on the throne!

fyi: The History of Chesterton Southern Baptist Church

July 2020 will mark the 29th 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 Church 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 was formed.
