Mission Statement

As pastor of Christian Chapel I feel it is important for anyone who may visit to know what our vision is, and what we feel The Lord has lead us to do. In 1979 God called my father Ray Triplett into ministry, and his mission was to always work toward fulfilling what Mark 16:15 says, “Go into all the world, and preach the gospel”. That mission has, and always will be our goal. Luke 14:23, spoken by Jesus as a parable, gives us our motivation by saying to “compel” all we can to come in.

Here at Christian Chapel we don’t care about your past, or how you look. We aren’t concerned about your bank account, or your wardrobe. We don’t see color, or creed. We only care about where your heart is with God. We understand that as the body can’t function correctly without all its parts, neither can the church. We encourage you to come grow with us and see why everyone that comes through the doors knows that they are part of the family. 

Thank You, Alvin Triplett

 

What We Believe

Scripture

We believe that the Bible is the complete, inerrant, written word of God. Men were the means by which it was written but God, nonetheless, is its Author (2 Peter 1:19-21). We believe that all Scripture is “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16) making it fully authoritative in and of itself. The Bible contains all that God intended to reveal of Himself to mankind, meaning that nothing more shall be added to it nor shall anything be detracted from it. It is the means whereby we may come to understand who God is and what He requires from us. It is THE truth (John 17:17), and as such serves as the standard by which we must live.

God’s Sovereignty

We believe that God is sovereign over His creation and that He has the power, wisdom, and authority to do with His creation as He pleases. We believe that God’s plans for mankind will ultimately be done regardless of mankind’s attempts to thwart them (Job 42:2). What God has decreed will be accomplished for His Word “shall not return to [him] empty, but it shall accomplish that which [he] purposes, and shall succeed in the thing for which [he] sent it” (Isaiah 55:11). 

God’s Deity

We believe that there is one God who has manifested Himself to mankind through three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each person is equally and fully God, and each yields all the attributes and authority of one another.

Salvation

We believe that God has made a way for mankind to be forgiven of their sins and reconciled back to Himself through the work of Jesus Christ. The Bible declares that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) and that “none is righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:10), thus all men are in need of God’s free gift of salvation. We believe that salvation can be obtained by anyone who believes in Jesus Christ for  “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

The Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ and is composed exclusively of born-again believers who have repented of their sins, placed faith in Christ, and have accepted Him as Lord and Savior. The purpose of the church is to advance God’s Kingdom on earth, which Christ established during his earthly ministry, by carrying out the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:18-20).

The Return of Christ

We believe that Christ will return visibly and in glory for His Bride, the Church, so that where He is we may be also (John 14:3). When Christ returns the Resurrection will take place and the Final Judgment will ensue. Afterwards the righteous will “inherit the kingdom prepared for [them] from the foundation of the world” while the wicked “will go away into eternal punishment” (Matthew 25:31-46). Until then we must continue our efforts to reach the lost and lead the sinner to repentance by boldly teaching and preaching the Word of God.
