We have a clear vision at Chapel Ridge Free Methodist Church:
“Together, becoming whole, through Jesus, Reaching Outward” calls us to take every opportunity we can to serve, build-up, and connect with people through a genuine love, sharing the truth of the Bible and Jesus Christ, and seeking to live out what we believe, both here at Chapel Ridge, and equally so in our community and around the world.
All of our ministries are connected to this vision, where Jesus is the centre, the why, the how and when. Would you like to understand all areas we work on and how they are linked to our vision? Read on below.
