Perhaps there aren't any reformed churches in the southwest corner of New Hampshire, or the southeast corner of Vermont, or the north central part of Massachusetts but perhaps somebody knows of a bible study group in this area that might develop into a church. Any ideas?

Friend,

What about Merrimack, New Hampshire? This church looks good: http://www.fccmerrnh.org/

"Jason1646", one of our posters here, attends that church.

May God bless--

Theo

I emailed Jason from the Merrimack church but, that is too far unfortunately. I will look into Trinity as it is only 45 minutes away. What have you found in Winchendon? it is also 45 +/- from here. Jaffrey is an hour on a good day (i.e. not in winter).

Pilgrim has planted a church in New Hampshire before, perhaps he would like to start one in Keene? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

What do you say, Pilgrim? We could hold the ordination ceremony on top of Tuckermine ravine and race down afterwards. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/giggle.gif" alt="" />

That's almost tempting! But I'd be hard pressed to choose which would be most frightening; 1) Returning to N.H. to plant another church? or 2) Strapping on a pair of skiis and screaming down Tuckerman's Ravine? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/rofl.gif" alt="" />

Here you go. The pastor has links with the New England Reformed Fellowship. 45 minutes isn't too bad.

In Christ,

Thank you very much. I sent him an email and look forward to finding out more about this church. I've also contacted the reformed baptist church in Winchendon. So, now even though its a bit of a drive, there are at least some possibilites. Thanks.

I can't tell you just how happy I am that I was directed to the Westmoreland Reformed Bible Church. Thanks to this church locator here, I have found a church that has become my church home. Thank you and thanks to God for His providence in leading me to this church. I have been attending since last winter and have found the teaching to be faithful to the word of God and the fellowship warm and sweet. It is a real joy to worship with these folk.

We are located in the heart of New England so if you happen to be visiting in the area, please do join us for worship. You may just want to stay.

Patrice,

Praise God for providing you with a good church home. In the past, I've known the feeling of not having one all too well. I'm rejoicing with you!

Today, I was going through some old emails and I came across one that I wrote on February 16, 2004 to the church that I am now attending and as of today am starting the process of becoming a member. It is thanks to this forum that I found this church. The Lord has provided a wonderful church and I am blessed for having become part of it. I look forward to becoming a member of the Reformed Bible Church in Westmoreland, NH.

I'm so happy for you, sis <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

May God grant you many opportunities to serve in your new church, and may the Lord grant to you and your new church wisdom and unity as you covenant together to glorify God and build one another up in love.

If I ever get to your corner of New Hampshire do you think I could find a Dispensational church in that neck of the woods? I remember what Oswald T. Allis said in his book, Prophecy and the Church 1943, '...dispensationalism is legion today...'. However I don't know if that is true now especially in your part of New Hampshire. I might be disappointed to find none of them around.

No, that was my problem for years, I was disappointed to find so many dispensational churches around. It was hard to find a church with good doctrine and not caught up in such heresies. There are many churches in "my neck of the woods" but most are apostate. Thankfully, I was able to locate this small reformed church in Westmoreland, NH.

Since I am dispensational, does that mean I am a heretic? And if yes, does that mean I am bound for Hell? And if yes, then think of the company I'll have: all the Ceasars, the Pharoahs, Napoleon, Hitler, the Mormons, Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, and probably Mark Twain. Wow I would love for Julius Caesar to recount the Gallic wars for me and how he was able to win his battles when outnumbered five to one. And then I might not have the luxury of having that society to talk to because I might be bound in chains alone on a hot lava rock that sizzles. My only company might be Satan and his demons who occasionally come down to Hell to visit its inhabitants and tell them of his victories. I'm sure I would be uncomfortable, hot and thirsty. I might even try to bargain with Satan to get a respite from that place but to no avail. Then I would think of why I am down there, and that it wasn't fair. I got a raw deal and so on and so on.... But of course I would think of my family and pray and hope that none of them would ever come here, at least to stay....

I notice that I am the last poster on a lot of these threds. At that rate I'll shut the whole chat board down!
Either people think I am too obnoxious or just plain boring.
Anyway I guess it forces them to pick another topic. Variety is the spice of life!

No, being dispensational does not mean that you are necessarily a heretic, lost, or bound for hell. It simply means you have not come to a fuller revelation of the truth of the "whole" counsel of the Word of God and are presently embracing error which you can not prove as truth.

Your post here is under Church Locater and thus no one probably answered it because it went [Linked Image]. The Head Honcho dosen't like that .... <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/nope.gif" alt="" />

However, if you feel the need to defend your dispensational views please begin a new thread and then get ready ... [Linked Image]

No WMW, I have been away to attend to my mother who recently experienced heart failure. She is in CT so I left for a few days and didn't have a chance to get back to you.

I am sorry if I have offended you. I made a quick post and certainly didn't mean to offend anyone. It is true that I had struggled for years to find a reformed church and when I didn't find it, I went to a variety of churches to check them out and was deeply disappointed that most were very liberal, not holding to the inerrancy of the scriptures. This was one of the low points in my life, not having a church that I felt was faithful to the scriptures. A little over a year ago, I found a wonderful little reformed church which I have been attending since that time. I am starting membership classes as I feel that I have finally found my church home. So, whatever I said was not to attack you. I do hope and pray that you do know the Lord as your savior and that your recent post was in jest. If not, I hope that we might be able to encourage you. It sounds like you have been through many difficult times and if you don't have a good church to attend it must be a terribly trying time for you and you do need support.

I hope that you will accept my apology and sincere desire to give you encouragement in Christian love.

Patrice
