“Mighty to save.” - Isaiah 63:1
Let us glance at the authoritative manner with which He executes His mighty acts of grace. Mark His deportment. Was there anything that betrayed the consciousness of an inferior, the submission of a dependent, the weakness of a mortal, or the imperfection of a sinner? Did not God shine through the man with majestic awe, when to the leper He said, “I will; be thou clean”: to the man with the withered hand, “Stretch forth thy hand”; to the blind, “Receive thy sight”; to the dead, “I say unto thee, Arise”; and to the tumultuous waves, “Peace, be still”? Dear reader, are you an experiential believer in Jesus? Then this omnipotent Christ is wedded to your best interests. He is omnipotent to save, to protect, to deliver, to subdue all your iniquities, to make you humble, holy, and obedient. All power resides in Him. “It pleased the Father that in Him” as the Meditator of His church, “should all fulness dwell” (Col. 1:19). Not a corruption, but He is omnipotent to subdue it; not a temptation, but He is omnipotent to overcome it; not a foe, but He is omnipotent to conquer it; not a fear, but He is omnipotent to quell it. “All power,” is His own consoling language, “is given unto Me in heaven and in earth” (Matt. 28:18). - Octavius Winslow

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.
