What We Believe

PURPOSE
The purpose of this Chapel is to bind together followers of Jesus Christ for the purpose of sharing in the worship of God, for the teaching of the Holy Bible as the Word of God and for the celebration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

POLITY
We believe in the freedom and responsibility of the individual soul under God. We believe in the right of private judgment.We hold this Chapel to be interdenominational, independent of all ecclesiastical control.

DOCTRINE
We believe that all scripture, both the Old and New Testaments, is given by the divine inspiration of God. We recognize the Bible as the sole authority of our faith and practices and hold that living in accordance with the teachings of Christ, as set forth in the New Testament, is the true test of fellowship. The Chapel accepts the historic Christian Creeds, namely the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed, and along with the Lord’s Prayer, shall be a regular part of our worship service.

FAITH

We believe in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, goodness and love; and in Jesus Christ, His Son, who for us and our salvation, lived, died, and rose again from the dead and lives evermore; and in the Holy Spirit, which reveals for us the things of Christ, renewing, comforting and inspiring the souls of all persons.

COVENANT

We are united in striving to know the will of God as taught in the Holy Bible, and it is our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of this Chapel to proclaim the Gospel to all people, exalting the worship of the one true God and laboring for the progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, the reign of peace and the reality of human brotherhood and fellowship in Christ. We care for one another in brotherly love, remember each other in prayer, aid one another in sickness and distress, and rejoice together in God’s rich blessings.

With these core beliefs in mind,

We are an interdenominational Christian Church. We are a body of people who care for one another in brotherly love, remember each other in prayer, aid one another in sickness and distress and rejoice together in God’s rich blessings.
