“And the Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!' And let him who hears say, 'Come!' And let him who thirsts come. And whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” - Revelation 22:17
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:


September 2022

Dear Neighbor,

Perhaps you have seen some of the recent pictures from the Webb Space Telescope. Here is one of them depicting thousands of galaxies never seen before.1

Scripture has a lot to say about how these galaxies, and in fact the entire universe, came into existence. Here are some of the verses that discuss creation:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

“Thus says Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and thy Former from the belly: I am Jehovah, who makes all things; who stretches out the heavens alone; who spreads out the earth from Myself.” (Isaiah 44:24)

“I have made the earth, and have created man upon her; I, with My hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their army I have commanded.” (Isaiah 45:12)

“Thou [God] hast created all things, and by Thy will they are, and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)

New Church doctrine has a lot more to say about how the Lord is the creator of all things. If you would like to learn about it, please feel free to give me a call (610-756-6140). And if you are looking for a religious community please consider joining us in person on Sundays at 10:00 am or watching a church service online at https://kemptonnewchurch.org/Worship/Services.php.

Best wishes!

Sincerely,

Rev. Brett D. Buick
