At Camano Chapel, we desire to be a friend to our community by being ...
...A HARBOR OF HOPE ...SHINING LIGHT TO THE WORLD.
Our vision for the individual believer is to:
• Abide in Christ (John 15:5)
• Allow God's Word to abide in them (John 15:7-8)
• Have a Biblical worldview (Romans 12:1-2)
Our vision for the "corporate" body of believers is to be a fellowship of people who abide in Christ, allow God’s Word to abide in them, and view the world by the absolute truth of Scripture. The result would be that Camano Chapel openly teaches faith amongst believers, and intentionally seeks to reach out to our members, our community, and our world with a HOPE only found in Jesus Christ.
