Chapel Vision

Christian Life Chapel is a community of believers

who want to see the lost saved, the hurting healed,

and to have their purpose revealed through the Holy Spirit.

        •  We Believe Salvation through confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; John 14:6) There is only one living and true God. There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:2, 27; Matthew 28:19; I John 5:7)

        • We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20, 21) We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father. Jesus was crucified, buried and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor. (Luke 1:26-33; Hebrews 7:25)

        • We believe we are justified (declared righteous under the blood of Jesus) when we repent of our sins and believe in Jesus Christ. (Acts 13:38, 39; Romans 5:1; I Corinthians 6:11; Mark 1:5)

        • We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in other tongues, as the Spirit gives the utterance, to be the initial evidence of this experience.  We believe in the operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit and encourage our people to live so that these gifts may be manifest in their lives. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6; I Corinthians 12:4-11)

        • We believe in the freedom of worship with every form of expression being done in decency and in order, not drawing attention to oneself. We define order in our services as following the anointing of the Holy Spirit through the pastoral leadership on the stage. (1 Corinthians 14:33, 40)

        • We believe in water baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. (Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:6)

        • We believe in divine healing for the body. However, we encourage and do not condemn medical science. (Acts 3:2-12; Acts 5:15, 16; James 5:14-15)

        • We believe every blessing we receive from God comes through the merits of The Atonement (Jesus´ complete sacrifice for us on Calvary). (Romans 5:11; James 1:16, 17) We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:10, 11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7)

        • We believe those who die outside of Christ will be punished in an eternal Hell, but those who die "in Him" shall share in His glory in Heaven forever. (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; John 5:29; Jude 1:7)

        • We believe in the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman and family commitment. We promote strong family values. (Ephesians 5:31-33; Ephesians 6:1-4; Hebrews 13:4; Matthew 19:5 Leviticus 18:22; Genesis 2:24)

        • We practice tithing for the support of Christ’s Body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is Biblical. Some will argue that tithing only applies to Old Testament times. However, we recognize that Jesus taught about money a great deal while on earth, and stated a profound truth when he said, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matt. 6:21; Leviticus 27:30)


          Christian Life Chapel was founded in Lebanon, TN in 1976 by Pastor Argyle & Patricia Faith.  The Chapel is a unique blend of Christian believers from many denominational backgrounds.  The church came into being because a growing number of people in Lebanon had a desire for fellowship with those who were seeking God’s promise of a victorious Christian life and the power to be effective witnesses to Jesus Christ.
          Miracles, such as salvation, healing of the body, mind and spirit and divine guidance for one’s daily life are ever present teachings of the Christian Life Chapel.
          “We believe God is still a God of miracles. As the signs & wonders that accompanied the ministry of Jesus and that of His early followers attracted the multitudes and attested to the power of God, thus affording them an opportunity to minister to the total needs of man, so we believe in the Word with power today.”
          “I had been preaching many years, but when I asked for and received the baptism in the Holy Spirit my whole life was changed.  Suddenly the Bible became more clear and I gained a greater sense of God and His power.”
          “I saw that man’s original realm was miraculous, with man in dominion over all of creation. But this dominion was lost in the Fall, and was forfeited to Satan, who is then called in the Bible ‘the god of this world’.
                      “Through Jesus’ death on the Cross, these rights were restored to believers.  According to Romans 5:17, ‘If, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.’
                      “Even though the Early Church experienced this kind of life, we gradually drew away from accepting miracles from God. Now many people do not believe or are not aware that God answers prayer and that miracles take place.”
                      “At Christian Life Chapel, we believe you can receive all that God has to give. We place much emphasis upon the fruit of the Spirit, and we believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit. Through the ministry of prayer we have seen deliverance from bondage to bad habits, addictions, wrong attitudes, fears and negative emotions. We have also seen the Holy Spirit provide healing for the body, guidance and strength and new joy in the Lord Jesus.”
                      “The lay people of Christian Life Chapel, both young and old, each consider themselves to have a unique ministry of their own, and are encouraged to fulfill that ministry as the Lord directs. They accept the principle laid down in Ephesians 4:11-12, seeking to be equipped for the work of the ministry and are often seen ministering to each other in prayer, or visiting in the hospitals or homes, where needs are found God is honoring their faith in wonderful ways.” ~Reverend Argyle Faith
