“Peace has in it confidence in the Lord: that He directs all things, provides all things, and that He leads to a good end.” - Arcana Caelestia §8455
Kempton New Church
“There are three essentials of the Church: an acknowledgment of the Divinity of the Lord, an acknowledgment of the holiness of the Word, and the life that is called charity.” - Divine Providence ¶259:3


The Kempton New Church is a congregation of people who believe that there is one God in one Person, our Creator and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; that the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Heavenly Doctrine of the New Jerusalem are the Lord’s Word; that the life of religion consists especially in keeping the Ten Commandments, and in doing our daily work justly and faithfully; and that there is a life after death, a heaven and a hell, where we continue to live as complete human beings.

We try to help each other understand the Lord’s Word and encourage each other in applying it to life. We welcome you.

Letter to the Community:


April 2021

Dear Neighbor,

Having just celebrated Easter and the resurrection of the Lord, it can be a good opportunity for seeing new beginnings after getting through tough times. Jesus Christ certainly made it through the most difficult times of all. His example can provide comfort as we look back over the last year and the challenges we have all been through.

Just as the rising of the sun can give us the confidence of a new day after a hard night, the Lord Jesus Christ can give us confidence in His salvation. Here are some passages from Scripture on this subject.

In the evening, weeping may pass the night, but in the morning there is singing aloud. (Psalm 30:5)
He calls to me from Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night? The watchman said, morning comes, and also night. (Isaiah 21:11-12)
It is of the mercies of Jehovah that we are not entirely consumed, for His compassions are not all consumed. They are new in the mornings; great is Thy faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
And when [Jesus] rose again in the morning on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons . (Mark 16:9)

If you would like to learn more from a New Church perspective about how the Lord Jesus Christ can help us experience a new beginning, please feel free to give me a call. And if you are looking for a religious community, please consider joining us at church on Sundays at 10:00 A.M. (services are currently being held outside, weather permitting), or watching a service online at https://kemptonnewchurch.org/Worship/video.php.

Best wishes!

Sincerely,

Rev. Brett D. Buick
Pastor
