About Us

Malton Bible Chapel

The church that meets at Malton Bible Chapel is a community of Christians affiliated with no demominational group, seeking to function according to the principles of gathering given in the New Testament. We recognize our interdependence and our mutual responsibility to bear one another’s burdens and so to fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)

Our activity in the community is based on the direction of our Lord Jesus Christ when He said:

“All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach (make disciples of) all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

Our statement of faith and practice reflect our convictions and we invite all who are so convinced to join in the fellowship with us.

 

 

A Brief History of Malton Bible Chapel


November 1963 :

At the invitation of two area families, the assembly met for the first time at what is now Malton Baptist Church. These first families included The Thomas', The Hannan's and the Connors'. They were soon joined by The Ennis' and then the Pooles'. Later the assembly moved to Ridgewood Public School for their meetings; and eventually to our current location.


1967 :

The four room, war-time school was bought from the Cooksville Board of Education.


1969 -1970 :

A Coffee House was started for teenagers who hung around in Victory Park where donuts and coffee were served, and a program set up.

Other programs in our early years included:

  • The Boy's Club (Christian Service Brigade)
  • Ladies Coffee Hour on Wednesday mornings
  • Girls Club
  • Sunday School, including a bus ministry.
