Our Mission Statement


It is the mission of Coleman Memorial Chapel to minister the gospel of Jesus Christ, to witness the Word of God, to respond to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our community and to encourage discipleship through communication and commitment to the Christian way of life.

 

A Brief Historical Sketch

The Coleman Memorial Chapel was built and dedicated in memory of James Coleman, age 14, who died in March l874. The grieving parents, George and Deborah Coleman, witnessed the dedication of the chapel in July, l877.

While the chapel was erected as a memorial to a beloved son who was tragically killed, this is not the purpose for its existence today. The Coleman Memorial Chapel is in existence and is open today to bring honor to Jesus Christ. We desire that men, women, boys and girls may know Jesus Christ as a personal savior and come to experience and know him as the Lord of their lives. Psalm 95:6, John 3: l6-21.

We believe in godly leadership, edification, fellowship, evangelism, worship and Christian service.

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. We believe that the Bible is divinely inspired and without error in its original writings. We believe that the Bible is the supreme and final authority in faith, life and practice of our Christian walk and talk.

We believe that through the faithful preaching and teaching of God's word, the Holy Spirit speaks to needy hearts. As a result of honoring and teaching the word and through faithful witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ people are saved, experiencing what Scripture refers to as eternal life.

At the Coleman Memorial Chapel, we are committed to seeing our people become strong and vibrant disciples of Jesus Christ who are able to effectively share the gospel. We want our people to apply the gospel in their lives through practical day to day living.

We want to win the lost for Jesus Christ. We want to give hope to the troubled and downtrodden in our community. We want to unite and strengthen families by providing an understanding of the meaning of functional family life. Our examples will come from scriptures that relate to the family of God.

We believe that we are commanded by the scriptures to worship God. We worship from grateful hearts, openly and with sincerity. Our worship blends both traditional and contemporary styles. We believe that as long as our worship honors God, we may be creative in expression of word and music. Our music includes hymns, gospel songs and more contemporary arrangements. Our preaching and teaching goals are to minister to both seeker and to the mature and seasoned child of God. The preaching and teaching ministries of the Coleman Memorial Chapel are evangelistic and edifying in nature. Matt. 3:2, Acts 2:38, 3:19, l7:30, 2 Tim. 2:l5
