Chapel Doctrinal Material


The Journey



The Trinity


This selection of material from my Community Chapel years illustrate various Chapel theological teachings. They center around the Chapel's doctrine on the Godhead, and on the Chapel's version of church history. I now disagree with these teachings, but remain very interested in them and how they have affected my life—first, in my initial encounters with the Chapel and in my early years of membership there when I believed I had found a very nearly ideal church, and then later during and after the slow collapse of the Chapel when I was trying hard to fit my faith in the Lord Jesus into the context of my post-Chapel Christian life.
