Our passion in Grace Chapel is ”Building Lives for Christ, and To Worship God in Spirit and in Truth” by bringing people of every race under Heaven to learn of Jesus, develop and equip them to become faithful disciples of Jesus, and to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. To this end our doors are open to people from every background. We also believe God to raise men and women of substance for God, who like Paul, would be ready to spend and be spent for God’s work in these end times.
At Grace Chapel, it’s not about religion; it’s about relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. We preach the undiluted word of God and our Bible studies focus on real life issues. The atmosphere is genuinely friendly with practical love of God, and holiness and prayer is our strength. So, whether you are just beginning to ask question about God, or are already committed Christians who desires a deeper knowledge of God, you can find a home here at Grace Chapel.
