fyi: The History of Chesterton Southern Baptist Church

July 2019 marked the 28th 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.



fyi: What are the church offices?

Worship Leader (Song Leader) ...

  • This person leads in the glorifying of Christ through music
  • He guides the service along through its various parts
  • He sits across from the pastor on Sundays

Deacon  ...

  • Call upon these godly and faithful men when there is a need of any kind
  • They free up the pastor more for Bible study and prayer
  • There are four deacons here to serve you
