The King’s Chapel is a congregation of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God incarnated in human flesh and that through his death and resurrection he has accomplished our salvation from sin. The promised gift of the Holy Spirit now applies that salvation to us by uniting us to Christ through faith alone. In Christ we have every blessing pertaining to this life and the life of the world to come. We believe God’s salvation is absolutely gracious. This free gift of salvation includes not only forgiveness of sin’s guilt, but also deliverance from sin’s power.
We believe the Bible is the very Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and inscripturated for preservation in the church from one generation to the next. We believe that all of life is to be lived for God’s glory because Christ’s lordship is comprehensive. He rules as Crucified King over every square inch of creation. We look for the gospel to transform not only our individual lives but whole societies and cultures; not only personal piety, but also politics and public life.
We believe that history is under the sovereign direction of God, who has planned whatsoever comes to pass, in order to publicly manifest the greatness of his glory and conform his people to the image Christ Jesus. Because history is God’s story, the meaning of life is to glorify God and enjoy communion with him forever. We believe Christ is presently reigning and that his kingdom will be victorious. At the last day, he will appear in glory and power to judge all humanity and complete his work of rescuing creation from sin. God’s people will be resurrected bodily and dwell forever in a perfected heaven and earth.
We desire unity and fellowship with all who are faithful to Christ. We are desirous of working in cooperation with other churches in the Brooklyn area to promote a common witness to the gospel of Christ in this region.
Doctrinally, we affirm the great ecumenical creeds and formulas of the early church (Nicene, Apostles, Athanasian, and Chalcedonian). We have high regard for the great confessions of the Reformation era.
