Where a message of hope is building new lives

Church building

Our Purpose

Chain-O-Lakes Orthodox Presbyterian Church is a caring community of believers united in our Lord Jesus Christ and committed to glorifying God by:

  • Proclaiming the Word of God through faithful, Biblical preaching and teaching, both locally and around the world.
  • Nurturing members to become fruitful disciples of Christ.
  • Building and equipping strong families.
  • Reaching out to the people of the community with the love of Christ.

Our History

Chain-O-Lakes Church began in 1995 as a group of believers meeting together weekly for Bible study. Worship services were begun in October 1996 and the congregation was organized as a particular church (with our own elders, bylaws, etc.) in January 2002. We have met in various rented facilities until God blessed us with a building of our own which we began to use in August 2005. In October 2007 God provided Rev. Bruce Buchanan to serve as our pastor.

Our Affiliation

Chain-O-Lakes Church is part of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church which began in 1936 as a testimony to the truth and authority of the Bible. "Orthodox" means straight thinking. In an Orthodox Presbyterian Church you will find straight teaching following the long accepted pattern given in the Bible. We are a church that believes what the Bible says and we try to put it into practice.
