What We Believe; Our Vision; Our Leadership

What We Believe
We are an independent, Bible-preaching church.

We believe...

  • The Bible (all 66 books) is the inspired Word of God and is our authority in faith, life, and church practice.

  • That God exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit.

  • That all men are separated from God by their sin.

  • That Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.

  • That personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior is the only way to forgiveness of sin and salvation to eternal life.

  • In the personal presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of every born-again Christian.

  • In the personal, imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for all who trust in Him.

Our Vision
Canaan Bible Chapel exists to help others to...
  • KNOW Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, through salvation.
  • GROW in their relationship with Christ, through an individual walk with God and corporate worship and fellowship.
  • GO for Jesus Christ, through service.
