about us

 

Westchester Chapel strives to be a "real Christian community". The kind that God intended when the first Christians began to meet in Jerusalem after the resurrection of Jesus. It was a community that worshiped together, enjoyed meals with each other, demonstrated radical love, and served God with joy. In short, we enjoy each other and God! The Bible teaches that the church is supposed to make a difference, to be meaningful to the world. So, it's our desire to have a church grounded on Biblical truth and relevant to what we deal with every single day.
Simply put, our mission is to be a living picture of Biblical Christian community to Westchester County and beyond, a community known for its Devotion to God, to His Word and to Each Other."
 
OUR PURPOSE: Why does WCCC Exist?
We exist to be a "Living Picture of Biblical Christian Community". It is our desire to be a model of what Jesus intended when he established the church community. (Leviticus 26:12, Jeremiah 32:38, Ezekiel 37:27, John 17:20-23)

 

OUR PRIORITIES: What is most important to WCCC?
We prioritize three things: Devotion to God, Devotion to his Word and Devotion to Each Other. These three things form the basis of the teaching of Jesus Christ and we see them as essential to forming a Biblical Christian Community. (1 Chronicles 28:9, Acts 2:42, Deuteronomy 8:3, Psalm 119:9-16, Romans 12:10, John 13:35, 1 John 3:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:9-10)
