Meet Our Senior Pastor

Senior Pastor Jim (a native of Connecticut) & Dee Wiltshire (from Stockton, CA) both met while attending Christian Life College in Stockton, California Jim graduated with his degree in Biblical Studies & Theology.

After College both Jim and Dee committed 4 years of their ministry to supporting a Senior Pastor as they helped grow a home missions church in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. After their internship they joined the staff of Faith Tabernacle in Manchester, Connecticut where they spent their next 20 years of Ministry working along side Kent & Crystal Elliott and the amazing Ministry Team at Faith. Jim & Dee served as the In-Reach Pastor where they spent their time connecting people with God, others, and discipleship.

In February of 2016 God began to deal with their hearts about taking this Gospel to Newington, Connecticut. Jim and Dee were appointed to a plant a NAM (North American Mission) church plant in the Town God had put in their hearts.

In September of 2016 they were on locations and “The Chapel” was born.
Jim and Dee have 3 amazing boys who love God and are very involved in the work at The Chapel.

Our Beliefs

one god creator

We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4) He is the Creator of heaven and earth, and all living beings.

He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).

water baptism immersion

We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.

Through baptism, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38

baptism of the holy spirit

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. Acts 2:4 We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to his people through tongues, interpretations of tongues, prophecy, words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, and healing. Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11
