Statement of Faith
Rivertree Christian Chapel acknowledges The Apostles’ Creed, which has stood for centuries as a general statement of doctrine in many Christian denominations.
The Apostles’ Creed
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church*,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen.
*The word “catholic” refers to the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Great Commission
We strive to be obedient to “The Great Commission,” as stated in Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV):
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
The mission of Rivertree Christian Chapel is to glorify God and lift up the name of Jesus through sermons, prayer, discipleship, and education.
The vision of Rivertree Christian Chapel is to (a) establish a virtual sanctuary for prayer and reflection, (b) maintain an online presence where God’s people can seek shelter, (c) disseminate inspirational messages, and (d) promote justice in the manner that Jesus taught his disciples.
The Chapel’s ministries strive to apply principles from the Bible as the basis for living in righteousness, wholeness, empowerment, critical reflection, and restoration. In doing so, we endeavor to promote social change and carry out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
