Halstead Baptist Church

A Very Warm Welcome to the Halstead Baptist Church Website. The church was established in 1678 and has been sharing the Gospel in word and acts of service to the Halstead area for over 350 years. The current building is the 3rd one on the current site. (Other historical sources suggest there was a previous building located elsewhere in the town thus making this the 4th building?). The current building, is the 3rd on this site, and we can say that for definite, as the history is engraved on a marble slab at the entrance to the sanctuary. This building was built in 1968.

The Christian church is not about buildings, though, it is about people who want to follow Christ. Those who receive Him as Saviour, and find in Him the forgiveness of sins through his death on the cross. It is about those who receive the power of the resurrection to live a new and changed life and therefore seek to follow Him as Lord. The building is just the place where we meet - it is not the church - we the people are the church, according to the Bible.

We, as local Christians, are building towards the future to enable HBC to ever better serve the community to which we believe God has called us. We are here to look up - as worshippers of God. We look inwards at ourselves, to align our lives with Christ and to become more like Him as we study the Scriptures and apply them to our lives and live as His disciples. We look outwards to our community, to share in word and deeds of the wonders of God and invite others to know Him. Yes, through Jesus Christ, a personal relationship with God is possible. He invites you to come and know Him.
