About Us…

CrossHope Chapel, Non-denominational Church Mobile, AlabamaCrossHope Chapel is a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ who follow more of a New Testament model of casual gatherings, with simple worship, prayer for one another, and a conversational verse-by-verse Bible teaching with Pastor Steve Durkac.

We reach across denominational lines as a Bible-believing, Christ-centered, simple church that gathers on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM and Wednesday evening at 6:00 PM.

We are different in that we do not have pews, offering plates, or membership roles, but plenty of opportunity to share and ask questions is we open our Bibles for a verse-by-verse chapter-by-chapter interactive study believing that “whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures (Romans 15:4, CSB).

 

Our Purposes…

We uphold three specific biblical purposes as we seek to be a church…

  • where one can come to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18),
  • where we continue “steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42),
  • where we believe our Lord’s promise that “where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).

 

Our Mission…

Our official Mission Statement reads “CrossHope Chapel exists to love God and to make His love known” which we aim to fulfill according to Acts 1:8 and Matthew 28:19-20.

 

Our Values…

When we meet as a church in gatherings, we have values that guide our fellowship. We do church a little more laid-back, casual, and simple compared to traditional churches. You can read our philosophy on how we do church at the Governing Values page.

 

Our Beliefs…

CrossHope Chapel subscribes to traditional evangelical Christian theology, historical biblical interpretations, and hold to a Statement of Faith in our By-Laws, which governs the doctrines of our pastoral leadership.

 

Our Pastor…

CrossHope Chapel was founded by Pastor Steve Durkac after serving as a hospital chaplain in Mobile and realizing that many of our community were disconnected with the church, yet longed for an authentic Christian fellowship. You can read about our church history at Beginnings & Affiliations page.

 

Our Affiliation…

CrossHope Chapel is a nondenominational Evangelical church. We are independent, autonomous, and self-governed. We are part of the Calvary Global Network, a community of churches committed to Great Commission engagement, and we voluntarily partner with other evangelical ministries that can reach further than us in advancing the Great Commission through Cooperative Missions. You can read more about affiliations and our once Southern Baptist connection at the Beginnings & Affiliations page.

 

Our Vision…

CrossHope Chapel is committed to trusting in the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:6) for the direction and future of our fellowship. We are both content with whoever or how many the Lord sends to us, and restless in our desire to reach more to be part of our fellowship. On any given Sunday you’ll find a comfortable gathering of 20 – 30, but with room to accommodate 50 or more while maintaining our relaxed conversational Bible teaching format. We also have expansion rooms options to double or triple our leased space at our present location.
