About us

Freedom’s Chapel has been given the vision to serve in the Memphis community by commissioning 300 spiritually maturing disciples to carry forth the intimate, transforming message and ministry of Jesus into their community and world.

Through innovative worship and bible based teaching, Freedom’s Chapel Christian Church (DOC) is called and committed to making disciples of those who are unconnected to and disconnected from the life affirming and life transforming relationship with Jesus and His Church.
