EVERYONE HAS A NEXT STEP. WHAT'S YOURS?
A relationship with Jesus Christ can be likened to a journey (and an exciting one at that!). Like any journey, Jesus asks us to follow Him one step at a time (Matthew 16:24; Mark 1:17; John 1:43). Everyone is at a different point on their spiritual journey and our desire is to help you take your next step — whatever that might be.
Maybe you are seeking to connect with others in biblical community through a small group. Maybe you are looking to serve Jesus and His kingdom. Maybe you would like to become more committed as a disciple of Jesus Christ through baptism or becoming a member of the Chapel. Or maybe you are wondering how to start this exciting journey of faith in Jesus Christ.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, please let us know how we can help you take your next step in connecting more deeply to Jesus Christ and His community here at our church.

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward transformation. The Chapel’s Mission Statement is based on the Great Commission found in Matthew 28. In this commission, Jesus gives one command with three applications and one promise. The command is to make disciples, and we do this by going, baptizing, and teaching. In light of this command, we believe the role baptism plays in this discipleship process is that it gives people the opportunity to publicly proclaim how Jesus has transformed their lives. Our hope is that as we experience this celebration of baptism and witness these testimonies of transformation, we will be reminded of the truth of Jesus’ promise at the end of Matthew 28 that He is surely with us always, even to the very end of the age.
