We are a Bible-believing church
As a church we place strong emphasis on the preaching and teaching of the Bible which is the inspired, infallible Word of God. We believe that salvation
is through faith in Christ, who died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His blood we have redemption.
This experience is also known as the new birth, and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
As a church we are committed to preaching the Gospel and testifying to the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that Christ's command
to "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature" applies to us and therefore look for every opportunity to do so. We regularly hold
Open-air Gospel meetings in Chorley town centre and the preaching of the Gospel is a regular feature of our weekly programme. Our hearts desire is that
the people of Chorley come to know Christ and to trust him, the only Saviour.
Preaching and teaching
We are also committed to the preaching and teaching of God's Word (the Bible), which we believe to be, in it's entirety (Old and New Testament),
the inspired, infallible Word of God, the all sufficient rule for faith and practice. Therefore we make it our aim to preach the whole counsel of
God and to keep back nothing because it is all profitable to us. (Acts 20:20,27; 2Tim.3:16-17).
Prayer for all
As a church we pray for growth both in terms of the Lord adding to our number regularly those who are being saved, and in terms of those who are
saved, growing in grace, in faith and in knowledge of God and His Word. We encourage those who are part of our fellowship to seek God for the fullness
of His blessing for themselves. Not in spurious and highly questionable experiences, but in terms of all that the Lord has for His people which He has
clearly revealed to us in the Scriptures.
