our direction

Our purpose, priorities and vision give us a clear focus and direction as we serve God and others through our ministries.


Why do we exist as a church?

To make disciples of Jesus. 


What is most important to us this year and how will we pursue it?

Ephesians 4:11-16 - To build up the body of Christ at Chatham with a focus on:

• Maturity

by pursuing spiritual stability

through doctrinal and biblical instruction

...to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes (vs.13-14)

• Health

by pursuing connection with Christ

through ministry-focused prayer

...we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ (v.15)

• Unity

by pursuing loving relationships

through small groups and fellowship

...the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped (v.16)

• Support

by pursuing ministry engagement

through leadership training

...when each part is working properly (v.16)

• Growth

by pursuing missional progress

through evangelism

...makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love (v.16)



What do we hope to see happen as we seek to build up the body?


A church overflowing with new disciples from our community.
