From Pastor Tom
Why does Holden Chapel Exist?We are here to create disciples of Jesus who strengthen families and impact our world. We are a community where you can truly experience life. A community where you can feel completely connected. A community where you're loved, encouraged, equipped and challenged to make your life count. Essentially, Holden Chapel is a family of people united in their faith in Jesus Christ and on mission with Him.
Holden Chapel is a nondenominational church that welcomes people from a variety of backgrounds. Our Doctrinal Overview reflects our confidence in the Bible as God's Word and in Jesus Christ as the only source of salvation and eternal life. Our beliefs can be found on the 'Our Beliefs' page of this web site.
Holden Chapel structures its leadership on relationships and trust. We believe the biblical model of leadership is that of a servant. Relationships matter to us. We want you to connect with friends who can encourage you on your spiritual journey. Your connection with friends is also the best way to encourage and serve others. It is through these relational connections that our mission of strengthening families and impacting our world is realized. A wide variety of small group experiences are available - they are designed to help you make some great new friends where you can live together, laugh together, grow together and serve together.
Our worship service is focused on encountering God. The atmosphere is unpretentious and welcoming. The music is upbeat, heartfelt and God-focused. As pastor, I teach from the Bible in a down-to-earth way that makes it real, alive and applicable for everyday life.
A safe and secure nursery and children's ministry is provided during service. Children are also always welcome in our services. Your children are a high priority at Holden Chapel. Caring adults and trained leaders provide excellent care and biblical teaching at age-appropriate levels. We have relevant ministry opportunities for 6th - 12th graders, such as Elevate on Wednesday nights - an environment specifically designed for teens - and a variety of special small group activities throughout each month.
We invite you to come and be part of the Holden Chapel community - you matter to God and to us!
