Our vision is to become ONE FAMILY: a congregation that is truly representative of the population of Grand Cayman in terms of race, nationality, economic standing, age and gender, with ONE PURPOSE: fulfilling The Great Commandment (Matt 22:37-39) and The Great Commission (Matt. 28: 19-20) through the power of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ; and with ONE DESTINY: to "be with the Lord forever." (1 Thess. 4:17).
The Church of God Chapel exists to help people know God and demonstrate His presence in their lives.
Our emphasis lies in two points: unity of all believers and holiness in relationships with God and our fellow humans.
We believe that the Bible teaches that the term church can only be applied to a body of Christians, either all believers world-wide or a local group of believers that fellowship together. Chapel refers to the building, our place of worship.
The Bible is our source of authority. We believe in the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We believe that all persons are sinners by nature. We believe that salvation is a gift through Jesus dying on the cross. We believe in a literal heaven for the saved and a literal hell for the lost (unsaved).
We follow no prescribed creed other than the Bible. We are not under any binding, unbending organizational structure. We do not follow any legalistic statements or enforce particulars to one's life-style, such as dress, diet, etc.
Water Baptism by immersion for new converts.
This is an identification with Christ, not a requirement for salvation or induction into any particular church group. We do not practice infant baptism.
Rather, we practice Blessing or Dedication of Children.
If you are a Christian, with a clear knowledge that you have been born again as a result of personally confessing your sins and accepting God's forgiveness through Jesus' death on the cross, all you need to do is begin worshipping with us. Simply let the Pastor know that you wish to make this your church home. You are a member because you are a Christian. You may become a voting member through a declaration / registration process. The criteria are:
a) you are 16 years of age or older;
b) you have declared that this church is your church home;
c) you have been attending regularly at least 6 months, and
d) you are living in harmony with the Church of God doctrine as declared on the Membership form.
If you wish to become a covenanted member which includes more opportunities and commitments, please see the Membership Covenant under the Membership tab.
Learn & live according to God's word. Obey it and serve God through it.
