Pastor William A. Abram
We hope you'll join us in worshiping God and studying His Word some Sunday. In the meantime, feel free to peruse this site. We hope it will give you an idea of what kind of church Open Door Chapel is.
Who Are We?
We are a fellowship of Christian believers committed to practicing the whole Bible as led by the Holy Spirit. This commitment is fueled by the conviction that Jesus is soon to return and set up His Kingdom on earth. This means that we need to be ready for His coming. Just as an orchestra tunes up for a coming symphony, so we are tuning up for His imminent return. We are doing this by trusting in His saving grace coupled with a diligent application of the Bible to our lives.
It is our understanding that we are living in the days of the restoration of all things mentioned in Acts 3:21. This restoration will not be completed until Jesus returns to Jerusalem to set up His Kingdom on earth. But we can help set the stage for the coming Kingdom by bringing our lives into conformity with all the sacred writings from Genesis to Revelation. In this way we can practice Kingdom living here and now and begin to taste the powers of the coming age.
What is our Mission?
Our mission is to proclaim the gospel and to live as Jesus taught. As God transforms our human weakness into His image, our lives demonstrate the grace and power of Jesus’ salvation. Although we are committed to teaching the Bible and bringing our members to full maturity in Christ, our primary calling is to intercede before God in behalf of all nations. In this way we can have a part in the battle to prepare for the Lord’s return.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
- Preach the gospel of Jesus Christ – Mark 16:15
- Strengthen and promote Christian faith – 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 14
- Teach the whole Bible – Matthew 28:20
- Pray faithfully for the fulfillment of the Scriptures – Daniel 9:2, 3
Open Door Chapel is a member church of an organization known as The Kingdom Christian Ministries. For a fuller understanding of our history and background see www.kingdomchristianministries.org.
How Could I Become a Church Member?
If you are searching for a spiritual home where you can be accepted as you are and challenged to grow in the love of God, we welcome you, for that is our goal. Church membership is open to those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, have experienced a scriptural baptism, are walking in the light of God’s Word, and who want to identify with the church’s purpose. For those who call this “home,” we commit to pray for and nurture each other. We’re glad you are here. Again, welcome!
