The Little Chapel is a small independent church affiliated to the Wesleyan Reform Union.
It has a friendly atmosphere where everyone is made welcome.
Our vision is to share God's heart with the community. Our worship is open and often interactive with a variety of styles and expressions. The teaching is Bible based, and Stephen our Pastor leads three Sundays a month, with the fourth week being a visiting speaker.
On Sunday and Tuesday evenings our meetings are a mixture of teaching, prayer, worship and gifts of Holy Spirit where everyone is encouraged to take part. At present two Sundays evenings each month Bedworth Baptist church join with us and the last Sunday we join with them to share communion.
Children are welcome and especially on Sunday mornings where our youth team run a programme of activities and teaching for the younger generation.
We believe that:
1. There is one true and living God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; Him alone we worship and adore.
2. The Bible, both old and new testaments, as originally given, are divinely inspired, infallible, and supreme in all matters of faith and conduct.
3. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. And are thereby subject to God's wrath and condemnation. But, God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, who was conceived by Holy Spirit, born from the virgin Mary, and that He is truly God and Man. That the Lord Jesus Christ offered himself as a sacrifice on our behalf for the sin of the whole world, thereby turning away God's judgement. He was raised from the dead, ascended into heaven where He is our advocate and mediator, and that He will personally return in glory and power to restore all things.
4. The Holy Spirit is a divine person equal to and of one substance with the Father and the Son. That His work is necessary to make the death and resurrection of Jesus effective in a believers life, granting them repentance toward God and faith in Jesus work. He also indwells every believer making them God's children. He gives gifts to every believer, to be used for the building of God's kingdom, and to bring glory to the Father.
5. The Lord Jesus Christ is head of the Church which is His body on Earth.
6. In the priesthood of all believers, and that together we are one body in Christ Jesus having equal spiritual opportunities as the sacred right of all.
7. That the sacraments are an outward and visible sign of the inward and spiritual work of grace, and that only baptism and the communion service were instituted by Jesus. That the proper subjects for baptism are those who have believed in Jesus as their saviour.
