Our Mission & Vision

WHO WE ARE

Atterberry Chapel “A Multicultural Christian Church”, is by choice a Christian Church without denominational connection. Atterberry Chapel has its beginning in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. In 1995 Atterberry Chapel embraced the Vision which led it to amend its name to include the Identifier: “A Multicultural Christian Church”. Today, Atterberry Chapel conducts Christian Worship Services in English in Frankfurt/Main, Germany as well as in Clarksville, Tennessee/USA.

The early Churches referred to in the bible, at Pentecost in Jerusalem (Acts.2:1-42); at Antioch in Syria (Acts 11:19-26) and so the Church in Philippi (Acts 16:11-34) were Multicultural Christian Churches (MCC).

The Holy Spirit began the expansion of the “Multicultural Christian Church”-Concept to the United States of America in 1998.

Since the “Tower of Babel” in Genesis Chapter 11, God made himself, responsible for creating various cultures within his created world. He changed the speech, the “tongues” of men, separating them into various geographical locations. Out of this resulted different cultures and habits. God’s plan for his creation has always been, to come to Him and He would be their God and Mankind be His people. (Gen.6:1-8)

We all agree that Jesus Christ’s Church will be “A Multicultural Christian Church”. It is where sharing a common-bond relationship through Jesus Christ is paramount and his Lordship transcends every cultural persuasion.

God entrusted Adam to give names to all other living creature. The name given by Adam had within itself the power of God to be what its meaning represents. Names blessed by God carry God’s authority and power. The “Multicultural Christian Church Concept” represents God’s Creation; black, brown, red, white or yellow. Jesus Christ died for all nations. Therefore His Church comes as a Multicultural Christian body representing various Ethnicities, Nations and Tongues.

His are those who choose Him above whatever their earthly cultural beliefs and doctrinal teachings advocate. They that choose Jesus Christ, rise above culture and denomination. Therefore Jesus Christ is the Living Lord of the Multicultural Christian Church.

 CHRISTIAN COMMITTAL

Lord Jesus the Christ,

Stand in my body,

Think with my mind,

Speak with my mouth,

Design … Fashion … my will as Thine,

Let the world look on me and see Jesus.


 

Herr Jesus Christus,

Sei in meinem Körper

Denke mit meinem Verstand

Sprich mit meinem Mund

Entwerfe und forme meinen Willen als den Deinigen

Lasse die Welt mich anschauen und Jesus sehen.

The Christian Committal as a hymn of poetic devotion, stretching beyond all boundaries, allows for personal and corporate gathered souls to consume the complete Word of God, which is Jesus Christ. It is given for all to embrace. We cannot refute the fact that the whole of God is in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Christian Committal’s greatest purpose is to extol the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It invites the redeemed to… say so, as well as the lost or unthinking person who suddenly comes to themselves. It most surely encourages total surrender to God through Jesus Christ. The Christian committal has GOD’S capacity to establish a direct and specific focus of reliance upon GOD which is what God desires most for his children…reliance upon HIM. We were created to mirror… Our Heavenly Father for His good pleasure.
