Our Story...

 

For 50 years Christ Chapel has remained dedicated to a mission of Reaching People, Teaching Biblical Truth and Unleashing Holy Spirit-filled Christians as witnesses to influencing the world.   

 

As a congregation devoted to loving Jesus, loving one another and loving life, we have maintained a continual commitment to the vision of our church and by so doing have been extremely effective in sharing with our community and beyond the hope and love found in Jesus. 

Today we rejoice not only in our accomplishments but also in the many people who have called Christ Chapel home during the past 50 years.  Building on their unwavering commitment to the vision and mission of our church, we step excitedly into the future knowing that our Lord will continue to guide and direct our steps as we walk faithfully with Him.

Throughout its history, our Lord has provided His church at Christ Chapel with many blessings and opportunities.   So much of what He has provided has led to our effectiveness in reaching our community with the unabashed message of the Gospel and in our making God’s presence and our own, known. 

In 1969 as a small contingent of people from the Arlington Assembly of God met to discuss the planting of a church in the Woodbridge/Dale City area, who could have imagined the awesome impact their faithfulness and actions would have on the future of Prince William County, Northern Virginia, Metropolitan Washington and the world?

Empowered by the Holy Spirit this small group led by Pastor Jerry and Laura Qualls, stepped out in faith to lay the groundwork for a church that in the years to follow would literally touch tens of thousands of people.  From this small beginning, big FAITH STEPS followed:

  • FAITH to purchase of property and construct the of the first worship center on Telegraph Road.

  • FAITH to purchase our current property on Smoketown Road in Woodbridge.

  • FAITH to sell the original Telegraph Road property and construct Phase 1 of our current campus. 

  • FAITH to enter into multiple additional expansion projects that include a sanctuary, chapel, educational facilities, and a Next Generation Worship Center.

  • FAITH to become a church that stands for and fosters the coming together of people regardless of race, national origin, or faith background.

  • FAITH to lead the organization and uniting of the Prince William County and Metropolitan Washington churches. 

  • FAITH to develop and implement compassion programs that have ministered and cared for thousands of needy, homeless, pregnant unwed teenagers and many others.

  • FAITH to develop and implement a comprehensive Christian Pre-School through High School Education Program (Christ Chapel Academy) that is recognized as the BEST Private School in Prince William County.

  • FAITH to tithe to works beyond our local community through MISSIONS.  Today Christ Chapel is ranked in the (top 1%) of all Assembly of God Missions Supporting churches.

  • FAITH to establish and conduct annual community outreach programs and events such as a major holiday (Easter and Christmas) that year after year have won acclaim throughout the metropolitan Washington area and brought thousands to Christ. 

  • FAITH to develop and implement higher-level ministerial education and training programs that have helped hundreds of men and women prepare for formal or workplace ministry.

  • FAITH to plant and nurture additional churches locally and around the world.

  • FAITH to follow Biblical Stewardship principles that have resulted in solid financial positioning for current and future operations and development. 

 

As you read the reports and summaries that follow of what has happened in this past year and what is planned for the future, be sure to take time to thank God and praise Him for what He has done and is doing.   As we enter into our next 50 years, my heart’s desire and prayer is that we would continue to be a church that REACHES People, TEACHES Truth and UNLEASHES Holy Spirit-filled Christians as witnesses to influence the world.  

There has been so much that has occurred in these first 50 years of Christ Chapel that gives us cause to be grateful and REJOICE.  However, the truth is, there is still so much more to do.  There are so many more to REACH, so many more to TEACH, and yes, so many more to UNLEASH.  Please join with us in praying that the next 50 years will achieve outcomes that far exceed what has occurred in the first fifty.

 

“To God Be the Glory”!

Blessings and Love in Christ,

Pastor Bill and Lynna
