Who We Are
Established in 2020, Dunamis Chapel is one of the parishes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). RCCG was founded in 1952 and has grown to become one of the fastest-growing churches in the world, with over 32,000 parishes in over 180 countries. Dunamis Chapel is focused on the plan of God for all believers to be the best God intends them to be.
We are a welcoming family Church based in the SouthWest of Edmonton. We are passionate about our local community and aim always to be the light on a hill. Though based in the Southwest corridor of Edmonton, we have a mission to reach out to the whole of Edmonton, surrounding cities, and the world. We understand that this starts with the believer and his family.
Dunamis Chapel is more than just a place of worship. It is a growing and loving family, a place where there are so many great opportunities to make friends, receive ministry and affect people’s lives with God’s love. There is something here for everyone, and we invite you to take a look and see.
The Church is intended by God to be central and the world peripheral. Dunamis Chapel intends to fulfil this mandate and therefore, we continually grow in the love of God. The Word of God is freely and fully preached with the intention for all to be empowered by this Word. This church home has been called by God to live abundantly in Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. This home church by the grace of God offers a place for all people to experience God’s power, feel encouragement and receive His strength for life.
The vision of Dunamis Chapel is three-fold and is to ensure the believer attains their God given best always. The mandate of God for His church and people is for “Raising A People of His Power, Fulfilling His Purpose.” This ultimately leads to the following four experiences for you….
- Fulfillment of Purpose
- Exceeding even the greatest of your dreams
- Excelling in all you do
- Impacting your community with this excellence
