Our Story & Beliefs
The King’s Chapel exists to be “a city on a hill” and a “well of life” for those in the surrounding communities of the southern suburbs. The King’s Chapel has a heart for our community and we believe that by helping our community by fulfilling their practical needs, we will meet their spiritual needs by leading them to their heavenly Father. We believe in reaching our community by bringing God to the community in ways that we believe are God-given ideas designed to reach the community.
