About Us

Who We Are

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about The Chapel and our community. The Chapel was established in Winfield, WV in 2019 as the result of the combination of two similar congregations.

We hope that after you look through our website and attend a worship service, you will consider becoming a more active part of our growing community of faith.

Mission Statement

To proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to our world in compassionate and ethical ways.

A Community of Faith

Our church is not just about a weekly service on a Sunday morning or an occasional Bible study. We are a community of faith sharing our lives together throughout the week as well. Our community may offer weekly meetings, support groups and mission trips, but these are just the outward signs of life of this "Body of Christ."

Our common faith in our Lord Jesus paints the way we "do life together" and is the undercurrent of all our social interactions. We share our joys, successes and good times. We also share our hurts, disappointments and failures. Our Christian walk of faith encourages us to trust in God whatever the circumstance. As the Apostle Paul wrote, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

The History of Our Church

Crossroads Community Chapel is a member of the Teays Valley Association of the West Virginia Baptist Convention. The church started January 2, 2000 . The previous five months were dedicated to the preparation of starting the church.

Founding pastor, Roger Adams, entered into an agreement with the West Virginia Baptist Convention, which stated the Convention would provide salary and financial support for the first five years. That agreement was fulfilled when the church became financially independent in the third year of existence.

The church started with only a handful of people and little money. Today, we have over 200 people involved, with the membership around 100 people.

Crossroads Community Chapel began meeting at the Tri-County YMCA in 2000 and later that year moved to Winfield Middle School. In 2002, we moved to our current location - Winfield High School in Winfield, West Virginia.

We have had an incredible relationship with the school, having done many things to help the students and assist the administration. The church has been very active in our community - handing out backpacks, school supplies and various other ministries. 

In the fall of 2002 a small group of believers began praying together regarding planting a new church in Eleanor, WV. In fact for the first year of its existence the church functioned as a prayer gathering. In the fall of 2003 Grace Community Chapel launched in an empty storefront in the Foodland Plaza in Eleanor. Grace moved locations two more times over the next several years first meeting at G.W. Elementary school before moving to their most recent location in the old Smith Furniture Store showroom.

Grace Community represented one of the southern most churches of the Central District (eastern Ohio and West Virginia) of the The Christian and Missionary Alliance, an evangelical denomination focused on global missions and the deeper Christian life. Grace became a church for people hurt or disappointed by church and was known for simplicity, sincerity of worship, Biblical teaching, and a prayerful community.

In March of 2019 Pastor Chris was approached by members of Crossroads Community Chapel in Winfield and presented with the option of merging the two congregations. Although this was not the first time a merger had been discussed, the people of Grace were currently praying for direction and this invitation was perhaps an answer to prayer. After much discussion, more prayer, and the blessing of leadership from both the West Virginia Baptist Convention (WVBC) and the Christian and Missionary Alliance the two congregations become one in June of 2019 with the church body re-organizing within the WVBC and Pastor Chris maintaining his credentials with the Christian and Missionary Alliance. 

The Chapel seeks to honor the history of both congregations while looking to the future as we seek to see the fullness of Christ fill everything in everyway. (Eph. 1:23)
