Every one of us struggles to find purpose, answers, and help in life. Some days we just want to keep our heads above water—take care of the kids, pay the bills, and make ends meet. We all want to feel we have what it takes.


But... we also have deeper questions: Why am I here? Is this all there is? Who am I? What happens when I die?


Jesus matters because He came to answer our deepest questions. He came to give us purpose for living now and settle the question of where we'll spend eternity.



God, the creator of the universe, has a plan for you and your life. He loves you and wants to help you because He made you— on purpose, with a purpose. He knows you need help. He knows you can’t do it on your own. That’s why He sent Jesus.


You don’t have to measure up to some impossible religious standard to know God—you can’t, only Jesus can. Jesus brings meaning and purpose to all the struggles you’re facing. You don’t have to be good enough, clean up your act, or follow some super-spiritual checklist.



If you are ready to put your trust in Jesus, pray this prayer:


Dear God, Thank you for your mercy, your grace and your love. I believe that without it, I would be forever separated from you because of my sin. I admit that I've fallen short and that I've sinned and need your forgiveness. Please forgive me for all of my sins – past, present and even the future sin in my life. Thank you so much for sending Jesus to die for my sins. I now accept your gift of grace and I place my faith in Him as my Savior. Thank you for sending Him to die in my place. Amen.

Baptism is going public about your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heart-felt commitment to following Him. It's the next step after salvation.



Sign up and join our next baptism class. In it, we discuss questions involving why people should be baptized, if they should be baptized more than once, whether or not it involves sprinkling or dunking, and others. Please contact our pastor, Ernie Madden, for more information, or fill out and submit the form at the bottom of this page. 

Reading Your Bible


The Bible tells us the truth of who God is. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.



You can spare that, right? Reading the Bible for just 10 minutes a day can change the rest of your days. It will bring you hope, encouragement, guidance, and practical advice on the every day issues you’re facing. The Bible is relevant to everyone, everywhere, at any time.


You can’t have a close relationship with someone you never talk to. It’s impossible. Reading God’s word in the Bible is the primary way He speaks to us. And it’s the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.


Where do you start? We recommend to start with the New Testament reading the book of Matthew about a chapter a day. Most people find that this is a great way to start their day with dedicating 10 minutes in the morning. We have a free New Living Translation Bible that is easy to understand, that we would love to give to you. Contact our pastor, Ernie Madden, or fill out and submit the form at the bottom of this page if you would like to receive a free bible.

Small Groups


One of the best ways for growing our relationship with Jesus is growing in our relationships with others - particularly with people who have the same goals.
We encourage people to join one of our church’s small groups because it is an ideal place for building relationships and pursuing spiritual growth with other believers. We meet in groups of about 10 people. Some of our groups meet at the church and others meet in church family homes.


If you are not currently in one, we would love to get you connected. You can read more about our groups and what they are studying under the 'Get Connected' tab. You can also fill out the form at the bottom of this page and submit it if you are interested in participating in a group. Either our pastor or one of our small group leaders will contact you.



Why give?

The simple answer is we believe everything we have comes from God in the first place. We give because we believe God has entrusted us to be leaders for hope in our church and our community.


If you want to give financially, checks can be made payable to Ashland Community Church and mailed to:

Ashland Community Church
PO Box 602
Ashland, NH 03217


We hope to also provide options for online giving in the near future.
