About Chris

Romans 12:1-2- “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your REASONABLE SERVICE. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. ”

I am privileged to be able to Pastor at the Open Door Bible Baptist Church in Howell, NJ where I grew up from a boy of 5 years old. It is amazing to now see my children growing up here, to see people kneel for salvation where I knelt, to be able to baptize people where I was baptized, and to watch families grow in the grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. I consider it to be just a REASONABLE SERVICE to follow, serve, give, and live for the cause of raising the next generation for Christ, and impacting even more souls than ever before in this area and in the world. I recognize that I owe an enormous debt first to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died so that I could have life, who spared me from living under His wrath and judgement, and bestowed His grace in such a marvelous way upon my life. I am not perfect by any means, I don’t profess to know much, or be a man of great wisdom, but I do believe in a God who liberally gives His great wisdom to those who ask, and reveals Himself marvelously to those who seek Him with their whole hearts.

Thanks for stopping by, and reading what is, at least to me, a tribute of thanksgiving to my predecessors, a desire to motivate my peers, and a prayer to inspire and influence my successors for such a time as this. Feel free to comment and express what God is doing in your own life as you walk with Him.

I am very thankful for my church here in Howell, and for my loving family: Christina, my incredible wife, and my amazing children Anna, Leah, Micah, and Emma. If there is anything we can ever do to be a help to you. Please feel free to contact us.


Because of the Cross,

Pastor Chris Teis
