Who we are...
We are a small humble loving congregation with a desire to grow. Our services are alive and encouraging, using contemporary Christian music, sharing testimonies, and preaching and teaching anointed messages by our pastor. On the last Sunday of the month after 11am service, we have a church fellowship dinner in our church fellowship hall for everyone. We are a Full Gospel, Spirit Filled, Evangelical, Born Again Christian, Bible Teaching, and Believing non-denominational church! Want to hear inspirational songs of praise, and hear an encouraging, uplifting message? Then we invite you to join us!

We believe everything in the bible from cover to cover. We also believe in connecting with each other as well outside the church services, such as having a cup of coffee at Dunkin Donuts or having fellowship at each others homes. Christian fellowship and friends are very important.

 If you have any questions about our church feel free to give pastor Craig a call to set up an appointment to meet with him. He would be more than willing!

If you want to hear inspirational contemporary songs of praise, hear an encouraging uplifting message,  and establish loving Christian friendships, then we invite you to join us! Everyone is welcome!

Has God been moving on your heart to be used in a ministry? Call Pastor Craig and he is more than willing to encourage you to be used by the Lord here at Changing Lives Christian Church!

"I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."(Matthew 16:18b)

Our statement of purpose
(Our vision statement)

Our vision here at Changing Lives Christian Church is to do our part in fulfilling the Great commission that our Lord Jesus gave all Christians through His Word. That is to preach the Gospel (the Good News) to everyone, everywhere, to go and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything Jesus commanded.

"And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved."(Acts 2:47b)


What are some of our ministries here at Changing Lives Christian Church?

Christian Counseling:

As a pastor of over 20 years and author, Pastor Mattheson also does a lot of counseling with people. He has counseled hundreds of people on a pastoral care basis in his professional Christian counseling career uses the Word of God as a foundation and has helped many. In addition to counseling people at his church, He counsels people outside his church professionally.

*                      Food Pantry:

Every other Sunday at 10am we give away free groceries for the poor and needy. We want them to know that Jesus loves them, and explain how to invite Jesus into their life to be their personal Lord and Savior, and to have a wonderful relationship with God through Christ.


  Community Television:

Some people in nursing homes, disabled, elderly, and in hospitals cannot come to church so we bring the church to them through television. We are currently airing our Sunday morning services on eight community television stations covering the entire Merrimack Valley sharing the Good News of the Gospel! Our services are also aired on our church Web-Site, or YouTube!
