It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer.
Our Vision in Christ Chapel is summed up in one statement: “TOUCHING LIVES AND GLORIFYING CHRIST” which is carried out through these five key objectives:
Worship: Christ Chapel has always been known as a place of strong corporate worship because we understand that our first command from God is to love Him with our heart, soul and mind (Matthew 22:37). Ministry to the Lord comes before ministry to the people. The “first love” is for Jesus. We believe that Praise is a calling given to every believer. “These people have I formed for myself, they shall show forth my praise”. (Isaiah 43:21). The choir (that we called Levites), music teams and our worship services provide avenues to lead us into Praise and Worship, both as a body and as individuals.
Prayer: It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer. We as believers – the Church – are to stop the works of the devil through prayer. We have Intercessory Prayer Team, Prayer Seminars and All-Night prayer vigils to release the power of prayer in our lives and around us.
Fellowship: The Church is a community of believers, we therefore believe that as a Church, we are a FAMILY, loving together and caring for one another. We are a body with many members (1 Corinthians 12:12). Every member of the Church needs the other members because God uses each of us to supply something to someone else. The first believers in Acts shared their possessions with one another, ate prayed and worshipped God together.
Teaching: Foundational to all that is done in Christ Chapel, is the WORD of God which is preached in its simplicity and accuracy because we believe if “a life” is touched other “lives” will be affected and “generations” will be transformed. Christ Chapel has “COACHED” many leaders in Churches and organisations around the world because of the prophetic and life-changing messages that brings out the potentials in people. We believe that Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers are given by God for the training and equipping of believers to do the works of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). As a Church, we’re always nurturing believers until they grow into full maturity because we believe that the Word of God builds and equips us, God’s Children, to be and to do what He desires for us. The Discipleship Classes, Seminars, Leadership Training Programmes, Audio Teaching Materials, Books and Radio/TV broadcasts provides training grounds for believers to be better equipped to do what God has called them to.
Evangelism: The command says – “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). We believe as a Church, it is our duty to reach the community where God has planted us with the good news, healing for the sick, deliverance for the oppressed and setting the captives free (Luke 4:18). Christ Chapel believes that the Church of God has the answer to the world’s problems and we must share Christ in every way we can. The power to “witness” comes from the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8) which gives us creative ideas of “how” we can reach our communities and meet their needs. All that we do in worship, prayer, fellowship and teaching are all in preparation for evangelism. God gave Jesus because He loved the world, His love has not changed and we are to reach the unsaved with this message of God’s love. That’s why we do street evangelism, Mission Outreaches, Door to Door witnessing, distribution of tracts, Benevolent Outreaches.
