- About Us
Chapelwood’s mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Disciples who work for Jesus' transformation value the following:
Unity is about sharing the same purpose and the same God. Unity means that together we understand what the essentials are and move the non-essentials out of the way. We tap into the synergy of "Community of Communities."
It’s not just about ethnic diversity, it’s about socio-economic diversity, and spiritual diversity, and cultural diversity, and diversity. God loves diversity.
In Genesis 1 and 2 we find God is a God of diversity as He creates a diverse creation filled with all lights, creatures of the sea, living creatures, plants of all kinds, and even all humanity (not just some humanity).
We embody grace as we receive it to those who need it – which is everybody. Grace is a gift from God, has no limitation, and should be visible in all that we do.
We offer a clear, consistent, simple, measurable, and grace-centered pathway. We are called to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. As disciples, we Experience grace in worship, Grow in grace in groups and relationship, and Share grace in ministry.
We must be innovative, adaptive, energetic, nimble, and entrepreneurial. We will not be afraid to venture into the risks associated with growing the Kingdom in God-inspired ways.
We are charged to use our resources in ways that make God proud. We will be financially accountable, conservative, and we will invest in the things that God is leading us toward, recognizing that the gifts we’ve been given aren’t ours.
Chapelwood has a heart and a history of mission. This is rooted in the many blessings God has bestowed on us, which we know we are called to share. We realize as good stewards we must proclaim the mission of Christ from Luke 4 as we bring good news to the poor, proclaim release to the captives, and let the oppressed go free.
We acknowledge that one strength of Chapelwood is that we value every stage of life – from cradle to grave. We will excel in reaching and discipling groups of every age and stage of life.
We will not become complacent – too much is at stake. We will not let contentment cause us to ignore the needs, defects, and dangers around us.
Learning, innovation, strategy, mission, and ministry spring from every single facet of our community of faith. When learning happens across all ministries and communities, we will be able to respond better, growing and adapting at every level.
