Another change at PVBC

It is with great pleasure that we are announcing that Pastor Andrew Guidara is joining the staff at Pioneer Valley Baptist Chapel as our full time Pastor. Pastor Guidara has resigned from his postition at Savage Arms, effective Friday February 14, 2020, to take on the responsibilty as our full time Pastor.
Over the past two years, since his devastating stroke. Pastor Steven Graham has made great strides in his health and well being. However, he feels it's time he takes a step back and will be our Pastor Emeritus. We are so pleased to have Pastor Graham take a step back but not retire. Anyone that knows him loves him and we want him to know that we want him around for a long time. He will continue to preach and teach as opportunity lends itself, and he will continue with other Pastoral duties and decisions.
We wish both these men of God much success in their new roles at PVBC. We ask that you keep both Pastors in your prayers. Please continue to pray that Pastor Graham continues to make strides toward a full recovery, and please continue to pray for Pastor Guidara as he fills the role of full time Pastor.

The young church proclaiming the old doctrines of grace.


   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 Guidara 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.
