Chester ARP Church exist to glorify God by developing mature, worshipping disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ for the advancement of His Kingdom to the ends of the earth by proclaiming and living in his amazing love.
The vision of Chester ARP Church is to proclaim God's amazing love in Christ to a hurting world.
We are convinced that a disciple-making congregation is one that worships as a family, nurtures one another in the faith, serves Christ together, and proclaims the gospel to the world. Therefore, we are committed to becoming a congregation that is defined by the following four characteristics.
We are a worshipping family of faith. Our desire is to worship our Savior in such a way that is intellectually and emotionally stimulating. Our worship centers on the preaching of God’s Word, the singing of Psalms and Hymns, and the offering of prayers to the Lord. Our worship extends to every part of our lives.
Following the Apostle Paul’s exhortation to build one another up in love, we seek to encourage one another’s spiritual growth through fellowship, service, stewardship, nurture and Christian Education. Our desire is to encourage, equip, and inspire all our brothers and sisters to be the disciples of the Lord Jesus that he has called them to be.
We are committed to meeting the needs of our surrounding community. Through our ministries of mercy, we seek to carry out the Lord Jesus’ command to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, and house the homeless. We have been tremendously blessed in order that we may be a blessing to others. Therefore, our goal is to share God’s love by loving and caring for others.
As a witnessing congregation, we collectively pray that the Lord will give us hearts to serve him whenever and however. We are sensitive to our Lord’s calling upon our lives to go into the world and be witnesses of his glory. We greatly desire to share his love, grace and mercy with all people. We want to tell others about the salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
