Years ago, when the thought of merging with other churches crossed my mind, I couldn't bring myself to speak about the idea aloud. I told my wife, the deacons, anyone who would listen that I was thinking of something really crazy. Really crazy!
But when you boil it down, all we are doing is trying to build the Kingdom... and that's what we have been charged with- as Christians.
Pastor Edward C. Lilly
In September 2016, The Christian Church of Chester was formed by the merging of the former White Rock Christian Church in Chester, PA and the former First Baptist Church of Fairview in Woodlyn, PA. This merger has been blessed by the congregation and leadership from both churches to step out on faith and buck the seemingly endless trend of churches splitting, instead they joined in the godly form of kingdom-building.
As children of God, our mission is to continue to unify as one body in Christ, while encouraging those who seek God's grace through his son, Jesus Christ. COME AS YOU ARE. You're always welcomed to worship with us to help spread the goodness of the Lord through the excellent preaching and teaching of the Word.
" THERE'S NO PLACE... I'D RATHER BE...THAN RIGHT HERE... AT CCC!"
..."two are better than one, for they can help each other succeed.
If one fails, the other can reach out and help...." -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
