Cheriton Baptist Church - Church of the 2nd Chance
We are a locally autonomous Church which means the goals and ministries of our church are controlled by us under the lordship of Jesus Christ. There is no hierarchy over us.
Being considerate of all ages, our worship services are built around sound biblical preaching, a balance of contemporary and traditional music, and upon the foundation of Jesus’ teaching in John 4, that God is Spirit and He is worshipped in Spirit and Truth.
We are a congregation that believes in God and that He is the creator of all things and the only true living God. He is referred to in the Bible as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He is the God that gave the Ten Commandments through Moses. We believe them to be God's commands to us for true living, not God's Ten Suggestions.
We believe in Jesus Christ as presented in the Bible, and believe Him to be God's Son, our only Savior, and Lord. We believe the words of John 14 when he wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, God Himself, that "Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one can get to God except through Him." There are not many ways to heaven, only one, and that way is by having a saving relationship with Jesus, Christ, God's Son.
We believe that the Bible is God's Holy Word, given to humanity by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and preserved throughout the ages as our means of knowing God, His Son, His Spirit, and how we are to live for Him. We believe that it is true and inerrant. We strive to order ourselves according to its teachings, holding its teachings to be the truths that govern us.
We believe that we are to strive to reach all ages and races, whomever God brings our way. We believe that God has a part for all of us to play in achieving His mission to the community. We believe that you too have a part. Would you like to join us in His work? Visit us. Worship with us. Get to know us. If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, then let us share this Good News of Jesus Christ with you so that you can have the joy and peace that comes with knowing Jesus as your personal Savior. Call us at 757-331-2391, or email us at
