Our Name


Because we are a local assembly of "Grace" believers who seek to exalt Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, evangelize the unbeliever, and to educate the believer on the entire realm of Bible doctrine, especially as it has been revealed to and through Paul, "the Apostle of Gentile Grace."

This would include promoting Paul's Apostleship (Rom. 11:13; Cp., Rom. 1:5; Eph. 3:6-8), Gospel (Rom. 1:16-17; 16:25-26; Gal. 1:6-12; Eph. 2:8-9; Ti. 2:7), Ministry (Acts 20:21, 24), Commission (Acts 26:13-20), Pattern (I Tim. 1:12-16), Ecclesiology (Acts 11:19-26; 14:22-23, 26-28; I Cor. 4:17); Doctrine (Rom. 16:17-18), and Dispensation (Eph. 3:1-5).

As such, our entire philosophy of ministry is totally Pauline in nature, scope, and aim. This is in keeping with the posture of complete "Grace-orientation" (I Cor. 15:10; II Cor. 9:8; 12:9) that God demands for overall spiritual function in this present age. Thus, in keeping with Paul's command, we desire to be his "followers" as he followed the Lord Jesus Christ (I Cor. 4:16; 11:1).


Because the word, "fellowship," means "to share in common," we believe that Paul uses this concept to illustrate that all who trust in the Lord at this time in history have certain unique favors afforded them equally in Christ. Things such as spiritual blessings (Eph. 1:3), a unifying creed (Eph. 4:3-6), and a heavenly citizenship (Phil. 3:20), to name a few, are impartially given for each Grace believer to possess. 

These thrilling truths are described as "unsearchable riches," and are what Paul wants "all men [to] see" as present realities for those who embrace Christ and become part of "the church, which is his body" (Eph. 1:19-23; Cp., I Cor. 12:12-27).


Because, although we are actually a local "church" in the truest Biblical sense (I Thess. 1:1), we are also an independent, non-denominational congregation of people who have joined together to defend the historic Fundamentals of the Faith and to advance all that Christ has entrusted to Paul for us Gentiles today (Acts 26:16-17; Rom. 15:15-18). But this is not necessarily the case with respect to the mainline churches of Christendom, per se, as it now exists. 

Thus, we have chosen to associate ourselves with those of a bygone era, who understood a "chapel" to be a smaller church which existed outside the realm of the jurisdiction of "state" churches or "established" denominational hierarchies. We believe Paul founded self-governing churches free from such organized religious authority, superintendency, and accountability.
