Mission and Ministry

Article 1 of the by-laws of the Chapel states that it is a multi-denominational Christian organization
for the purpose of bringing people to a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and His plan for their


The mission of the Chapel then, is established to follow the Bible's teachings on the Church's role in
God's plan. Two verses provide the foundation of the mission:

He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that

He Himself will come to have first place in everything.           Colossians 1:18

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the
Son and the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and
to, I am with you
always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20


Is to make disciples who know God and are becoming like Christ are obeying His Commands and are
striving to be not conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of their minds, to
prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Thus to make Him
known in the Villages and throughout the world through our witness.

We concentrate on the following major areas of ministry:

Preaching the Gospel. Mark 16:15
Fellowship. I John 1:3

Glorifying God. Ephesians 3:20-21
Training. II Timothy 2:2 & 4:2

Service. Ephesians 6:7, 8 Romans 12:2
Missionaries. Acts 13:2-5

All of the Chapel's services, sponsored activities, organizations, outreaches, music, Bible studies,
sermons, and communications are focused on carrying out the above Biblical instruction to spread
the Good News of the Gospel, to glorify God, to serve others, to pray fervently, to enjoy Christian
fellowship, to support missionaries in various mission fields, most importantly The Villages, and to
train people for discipleship.
