"Discovering Jesus & Sharing His Love"
The vision of White Chapel Church is what drives our church forward. The Bible says that, "Where there is no vision, the people perish" (Proverbs 29:18), that is why our vision statement is so important to us. We believe that in order to move forward we have to be moving toward something. "Discovering Jesus," the words evoke a sense of wonder and pursuit. We believe that as followers of Jesus you are never finished learning and growing in Him. There are always new depths to plunge to in our relationship with our all-encompassing, eternal God. It is in our quest to discover that we find out more about who God is, and who we are in relation to Him.
"...so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
The two greatest commands Jesus gave were, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind," and "Love your neighbor as yourself" (Matthew 22:37 & 39). We believe that once you have entered into relationship with Jesus and you begin to discover the life you have in Him, you can then Share His Love with others. We desire to be a church that welcomes people with open arms, one that always points people directly to Jesus and the life that He has for them.
"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
"We love because he first loved us."
1 John 4:19
