Mission Statement


Jesus Christ is Our Role Model

Learning, understanding, appreciating and developing our individual uniqueness, we are committed to meeting people where they are and journeying together to become more like Jesus Christ.

Grace Chapel is an English-speaking, multicultural congregation rooted in Anglican/Episcopal traditions.  We are a combination of liberals, conservatives, citizens, immigrants, Anglicans and Episcopalians, Pentecostals and Evangelicals, all wrestling with the complexity of our times and striving to embody the qualities of both the lion and the lamb as expressed in Christ. We are devoted to breaking down walls created by differences and celebrating the beauty and blessing of our uniqueness in Christ.

Healing Presence

Personal experience of the healing presence of God’s love and grace is central to our worship. We enjoy and embrace flexible liturgies which welcome and reflect the diversity and complexities of our humanity, culture, and styles, and the freedom of worship in songs, preaching, testimony and prayers.

Prayer for Mission

O gracious and loving God, you work everywhere reconciling, loving and healing your people and creation. In your Son and through the power of your Holy Spirit, you invite each of us to join you in your work. We, young and old, lay and ordained, ask you to form us more and more in your image and likeness, through our prayer and worship of you and through the study of your Scripture, that our eyes will be fully opened to your mission in the world. Then, God, into our communities, our nation, and the world, send us to serve with Christ, taking risks to give life and hope to all people and all of your creation. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.


  1. Gratitude: We agree to, first be appreciative of one another, and celebrate the experiences, skills, and wisdom we bring to the table. We will give, love, celebrate each other’s uniqueness and be grateful to God at all times.
  2. Respect: We agree to be on time to respect others. Because we believe in the value of our community, we agree to give priority to our group meetings. If we are running late, we will call ahead. We agree that whatever is shared in the group stays in the group. This includes what is shared through phone calls, e-mails, etc. We want this group to be a safe place to grow.
  3. Accountability: We agree to hold each other accountable. Each of us will have the obligation to account for our actions, accept responsibility for them, and to disclose the results in a transparent manner. We will take responsibility for people, money, documents, or other properties entrusted to our care. We will reach out to those who could not make it to meetings.
  4. Communication: We agree to consult one another and be consulted before making decisions. We agree to respond to emails, phone calls or voice messages in timely manners. Because of our multicultural diversity, we will be mindful of other people’s culture and way of life, however, in a situation of unresolved conflict, the Bible will be our final guide. We will listen and ask for clarification without intimidating or forcing our own standards on others.
  5. Embrace: We agree to embrace brave changes: We will seek to be open and be honest with each other. Our small group is a place where we can take off our masks, be ourselves, and be accepted for who we are. We will not take advantage of each other. We will be willing to take risks and embrace new grounds and trusting God’s faithfulness.
