OUR MISSION: Why do we exist?
The Village Chapel exists to glorify God through the teaching of His word, through heartfelt worship, and by connecting people with opportunities to live lives of real significance, serving God and their neighbors as a local community of faith.
We frequently refer to the four facets of this mission as “The 4 W’s:”
Word – We hold a high view of Scripture which is our standard for belief and behavior. We study verse-by-verse through books of the Bible to ensure we benefit from the full counsel of God’s Word.
Worship – We seek to engage in worship that is God-focused, God-glorifying, passionate, and authentic. We gather to draw near to God, to catch a glimpse of His Majesty, and honor His name.
Witness – We desire to manifest the love of God in word and deed; to show concern for the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical needs of those around us. We desire to live out the gospel of grace through faith in Christ in such a way that others are drawn to believe.
Withness – We desire to be a church where relationship is more important than membership; where everyone feels a little less lost and a little more found.
OUR GOALS: What do we hope to accomplish?
To become a living platform for the love, truth, grace and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to be shared with the people of Nashville and the surrounding areas. To be a voice calling people to become members of the kingdom of God, to live under God’s loving authority and to reflect outwardly God’s justice, mercy and faithfulness.
A church that isn’t a desert but a stream in the desert
A church that is more like an organism than an organization, more like a movement than an institution, more like a family than a corporation, where people come more out of a sense of divine calling than dutiful membership
A church that reflects humility and respects honesty
A church that reaches the lost and renews the languishing
A church family that reaches out with the love and grace of God to minister to the needs of the entire person — spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically
The kind of church people might be surprised by
So, once again, we go back to the basics.
OUR VISION: What results do we hope to see?
More Worship of God
More Lives Transformed
More Kingdom Living
