What we believe

CYPRESS CHAPEL teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God, who rescues men, women, and children from the effects of sin by calling us by the Holy Spirit to trust in God's Son, Jesus, as our Savior

  • the FATHER, creator of all that exists; 
  • JESUS CHRIST, THE SON, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all people and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; 
  • and the HOLY SPIRIT, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments, and pours out His blessings on God’s people each day; dwelling in the hearts of believers. 

The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God. The words of the APOSTLES' CREED, along with the NICENE and ATHANASIAN CREEDS, have served as a summary of Spirit-filled and scriptural belief since the earliest days of Christianity. They summarize what Christians have always confessed when gathered around God's Word in the name of God's Son--and they are the truths that we believe, teach, and confess.

discipleship process

And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, 

to the breaking of bread and to prayer. - Acts 2:42 ]

Cypress Chapel is a body of believers and disciples of Jesus Christ who seek to follow His direction and mission through WORSHIP, HOME GATHERINGS, and rhythmic patterns of SERVICE and involvement in our community.  The central focus of our ministry is relationships - with God, with other Christians, and with people who do not yet know Jesus.

CYPRESS CHAPEL Discipleship Process:

  1. Attend worship, with the goal to commit to regularly attend

Grace, Faith & God's Word Alone

As a ministry of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, we accept and subscribe to Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century that can be summarized in three short phrases: GRACE ALONE, FAITH ALONE, GOD'S WORD ALONE.

  • GRACE ALONE | God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly. 
  • FAITH ALONE | By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him. 
  • GOD'S WORD ALONE | The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His covenant and kingdom of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the rule and norm for all belief and through it makes us aware of sin, fills us with faith in Jesus, and guides us to follow Him.
