The Chapel is a non-denominational Christian church made up of nine campuses across the northwest suburbs of Illinois and southern Wisconsin, welcoming people of all faiths or no faith background at all. No matter who you are or where you’ve been, if you’re ready for more of God in your life, you’ve found a home at The Chapel.
As a church, we desire to help people everywhere experience all of God, in all of them, for all the world!
The Chapel’s vision is to help ignite revival in our church, communities, and worldwide! Revival is simply any group of people, anywhere on earth, at any point in time, coming alive to God.
We are a people completely giving ourselves to God and others. We believe God for all things, great and small. We live authentically, never pretending to be anything we aren’t – and we find ways to enjoy life and have a lot of fun along the way.
We live for revival for ourselves,
our communities, and our world.
At The Chapel, we believe that God leads us into a counter-cultural lifestyle that fuels revival. How we understand the Gospel, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and our mission on earth impacts our lives, our community, and the world. When we live those things out the way God intended, revival is born.
EXPLORE OUR BELIEFS CIRCLE
The Chapel’s beliefs circle helps us understand what it looks like to live a lifestyle of revival. By modeling our life by what’s inside the circle, we can begin to experience all God has for us and help others do the same.
LIVING LIKE HEAVEN HAS COME TO EARTH
As a church, we believe that The Gospel is not about a savior who came and died to save us from our sin so that we could go to heaven – but so that heaven could come to earth.
LIVING AS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS
Jesus showed us how to live a life that brings us closer to God and to God’s original design for our lives. At The Chapel, we don’t just admire Jesus’ ways but choose to follow them and experience more of God.
LIVING BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
When Jesus ascended into heaven, we were given the Holy Spirit as a guide for our daily lives. We believe that God works through us today by the power of the Holy Spirit to bring his kingdom to earth.
LIVING TO BLESS OTHERS
As followers of Jesus empowered by the Holy Spirit, we believe that it is our job to live our lives on a mission to bless others and help them come alive to God.
As a church, we help you live a lifestyle of revival by encouraging and equipping you in these things...
We desire to come alongside you wherever you are in your relationship with Jesus to learn more about what it means to live like him. That’s why Jesus is the focus of everything we do.
Through prayer we connect with the father and are led by the power of the Holy Spirit to carry His kingdom into the world around us. Anyone can receive the ministry of God through prayer, but if you choose to follow Jesus God can also minister to people through you!
The Bible encourages us to be in community with other followers of Jesus to encourage each other in our faith and good works. At The Chapel, we build this community through ministries, Chapel Groups, serve teams and during our weekend gatherings.
We live on mission blessing others by being a force for good in our community. As a church, we bring God’s kingdom to others through our Chapel Care ministries and partnering with local organizations – but it doesn’t stop there. Everyone who is a follower of Jesus can be a force for good by reaching out wherever and whenever there is a need.
