About Us

The word church comes from the Greek word ekklesia which is defined as “an assembly” or “called-out ones” so according to the Bible, the church is the body of Christ—all those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

This is why we don’t have sign-on-the-line congregational memberships. Your a member by belief in Jesus Christ, being part of the body of Christ, and being involved in our local church fellowship.

We know our building is not the church, we are. Since God is not into disorganization, we have core operating principles and practices.

  

Our Mission…

CrossHope Chapel “exists to love God and to make His love known by worshiping, witnessing, and waiting for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.” We hold this in light of Matthew 22:37-39 and seek to fulfill along with Matthew 28:18-20 in partnership with like-minded ministries that can reach further than us in advancing the Great Commission. | Cooperative Missions

CrossHope Chapel holds to three biblical purposes and seven governing values that guide our philosophy of doing church and how we put that into practice as we gather in fellowship as a church family. | Governing Values
