Porchlight Baptist Church is an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Byron Chesney. Our services are held in our Pastor's home and streamed live on the world-wide web. As opportunity allows, we also travel from house to house of other believers and hold services.
Our prayer is that the Lord will use this ministry to reach those that are home-bound, shut-in, or disabled, or for those who prefer a small church setting modeled after the 1st Century New Testament Churches as found in the Book of Acts.
Acts 2:46-47 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
We believe now more than ever, families need to bond together in Christian love and fellowship.
Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
If you live in the Knoxville / Corryton / Halls / Blaine / Luttrell, TN area and would like for us to come to your home and hold a service, just send us an email and we will arrange a time to come.
