EXALT. ELEVATE. LAUNCH.

WHO WE ARE

MISSION: Chapel Hill is a church on mission to exalt Jesus, elevate others, and launch disciple-makers.

VISION: We believe God has called the people of Chapel Hill to: love and serve our local community with mercy, care, and compassion; share the gospel so that people discover new life in Jesus; and prepare and mobilize the next generation to live a life on mission for Christ.

DISCIPLESHIP: We are a thriving family of believers committed to reaching and loving our community for Christ. As Christians who believe we have been called to be disciples as we disciple others, we worship, serve, connect, and seek fresh ways to reach others with the gospel. We also love to have a little fun and just do life together! Our biggest desire is to grow in deep, meaningful faith as we go about our professional, social, and family lives. And we’re so excited for you to join us on that journey!

OUR DNA: There are unique distinctives about Chapel Hill that we call our DNA. If any of these values were missing, we wouldn’t be Chapel Hill. Learn more.

OUR LOGO: Learn more about the meaning of our logo and how it helps tell our story.

BELIEFS

We are shameless believers in Jesus. We embrace his death and resurrection and the salvation he offers. We believe that we are all sinful, and that sin separates us from God, and that our salvation depends on God’s free grace which is available to all who call on Jesus. The Scripture is our foundation, and we believe the Bible is absolutely true, infallible, and inspired by the Holy Spirit. We’re committed to what we call the “Essentials of the Faith,” which are held by all congregations in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

SACRAMENTS: As Presbyterian Christians, we observe two sacraments: baptism and the Lord’s Supper (also called communion).

POLITY: There are three offices in the EPC church: Ministers of the Word and Sacrament (also called Teaching Elders or Pastors), Ruling Elders, and Deacons. Learn more about our Elders and Deacons. Learn more about why we are proud to be a part of the EPC denomination here.

HEALING: Chapel Hill also has specific core beliefs on healing, based on our understanding of the Bible. Learn more.
