WHO WE ARE

 
Christian Chapel is many generations and ethnicities joined together to connect people to God, to each other, to the community and to the world. Our mission is “MAKING JESUS KNOWN”.
 
We are families, singles, military, civilian, young and old – all working together to celebrate and share Jesus’ love with our community.
 
Christian Chapel is a Pentecostal Fellowship that was founded by Allen Repko in 1986, with a vision of reaching Virginia Beach and beyond with the good news of redemption through Jesus Christ. After nearly seven years in a temporary location, we opened the doors at our current site on Salem Road under the leadership of our second pastor, Steve Dyer. In December of 2010, we completed expansion into a multi-purpose Worship Center, lead by our current pastor, Tom Conant.
 
The heart of Christian Chapel is people. We live to extend God’s love in practical ways that bring people to Him and encourage them to be involved in spreading His love wherever they go.
 
The church functions best when everyone in the church is actively doing his or her part to make that happen. There is a place here for you to love and be loved.

OUR CORE VALUES

At Christian Chapel we strive to be …
 
  • Christ-centered: We unashamedly anchor all of our faith in Jesus Christ because we ardently believe that His is the only name by which people may be saved.
  • People-focused: We are over the top in loving, accepting and making everyone feel like they belong because we believe that every person has infinite value to God.
  • Relational: We fiercely pursue friendships believing that people find Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him through others they know.
  • Authentic: We are up-front, honest, transparent people who wear no masks. We live in light of God’s truth that sets us free.
  • Prayer-empowered: We will actively create a culture of prayer because we know that we can do nothing apart from God’s supernatural help and guidance.
  • Relevant: We go out of our way to make the good news of Jesus Christ resonate with the man on the street because we know that the truth never changes but our methods must connect with the culture.
  • Future-minded: We aggressively invest our resources to establish the faith in the next generation because we want the good news of Jesus Christ to continue after we are gone.
