Quote of the week:


“O Heavenly Father, Teach me to see that if Christ has pacified thee and satisfied divine justice he can also deliver me from my sins; that Christ does not desire me, now justified, to live in self-confidence in my own strength, but gives me the law of the Spirit of life to enable me to obey thee; that the Spirit and his power are mine by resting on Christ’s death; that the Spirit of life within answers to the law without; that if I sin not I should thank thee for it; that if I sin I should be humbled daily under it; that I should mourn for sin more than other men do, for when I see I shall die because of sin, that makes me mourn; when I see how sin strikes at thee, that makes me mourn; when I see that sin caused Christ’s death, that makes me mourn; that sanctification is the evidence of reconciliation, proving that faith has truly apprehended Christ; Thou hast taught me that faith is nothing else than receiving thy kindness; that it is an adherence to Christ, a resting on him, love clinging to him as a branch to the tree, to seek life and vigor from him. I thank thee for showing me the vast difference between knowing things by reason, and knowing them by the spirit of faith. By reason I see a thing is so; by faith I know it as it is. I have seen thee by reason and have not been amazed, I have seen thee as thou art in they Son and have been ravished to behold thee. I bless thee that I am thine in my Saviour, Jesus.” - The Valley of Vision

ABOUT US

   Pioneer Valley Baptist Chapel’s beginnings stretch back to 1973 at Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri. Two students, Earl Jackson and Steven Graham, met and became friends. Their friendship was rooted in their understanding of scripture, both, separately, and under different circumstances had come to see in the scriptures in the form of theology called Calvinistic or reformed.
   Their friendship eventually led them to the establishment of Pioneer Valley Baptist Chapel in Chicopee, Massachusetts in 1975. They labored together in the early years until Pastor Jackson moved to Texas to pastor. The church continues under Pastor Graham today. We are a gathered group of baptized believers who by God’s Grace worship and serve Jesus Christ our Saviour as grace enables us.
     Our church is a Charter Member of the Reformed Baptist Network (RBNet) and holds to the London Baptist Confession of Faith (1689) as an expression of theological understanding taught by the scriptures. We are mission minded, supporting a variety of Mission works both at home and abroad. We are involved as a church in youth camp, Christian schooling, and other outreach and para-church ministries. We would love to have you come and visit us if traveling through New England. If you are searching for a church home, please visit or CONTACT US. We are unique, we are serious about our faith. We are zealous for our God, and we would love to meet you and have you meet us.

(We are handicap accessible with an elevator so anyone who cannot use the stairs can use the elevator. Plus we provide a live stream in the Sunday School room on the first floor).
