Looking for a Simpler, Smaller, Relaxed Church in West Mobile, Alabama?
CrossHope Chapel is a nondenominational church in West Mobile, Alabama with relaxed authentic gatherings, prayer support, simple worship, and informal fellowship around expository verse by verse Bible study teaching with open discussions.
We meet more like a family gathering than a corporate event, following the model of Acts 2:42, which says of the early church, that “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (ESV).
When you walk in, you’ll notice that we even look different. We have round tables so you can relax with your coffee and open your Bible without fighting a balancing act on your lap. We do not pass an offering plate and we do not have local church memberships. You’re a member here, not by a signature on the dotted line, but by your regular attendance, your belief in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and being part of the larger body of Christ…read more
