Our Mission, Vision, Pastor, and Beliefs

The mission of Chapel By The Sea is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the nations by a commitment to Biblically teaching God’s Word of the whole council of our Lord Jesus Christ, by emphasizing the Great Commission through missionary activity and support, to administer the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper and Baptism, to edify believers, and to do all that is sovereignly possible and biblically permissible to magnify the name of Jesus.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.

Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Randall Anderson, Youth Director

Randall was born in the jungles of Peru where his parents were serving as missionaries.  After serving as a deacon at the Chapel by the Sea, he was called to return to Peru to serve the youth of Pucallpa for three years with his wife Susan and his four children.  Upon their return to the States, he was appointed as an Elder and most recently, youth director.  Randall has a deep love for mentoring youth and encourages them to make a stand for Christ and make Godly decisions daily that will help them through their adolescent years.  

    What we believe: Chapel By The Sea is a member of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. For more information about our beliefs and the ARP, please visit ARPChurch.org. From ARPChurch.org: The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God without error in all that it teaches. We believe Christ is the Son of God. We believe God the Father gave His Son to save us from our sins. We believe that the Holy Spirit reveals Christ to us through the Holy Scripture which is the Word of God written. While we do not have the original autographs as evidence, we believe on faith that God’s Word in its entirety was accurately recorded by the original writers through divine inspiration and reliably transmitted to us. We affirm that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone.

The position of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church on Scripture is that the Bible alone, being God breathed, is the word of God written, infallible in all that it teaches, and inerrant in the original manuscripts.
