  • About Us | nhagc

    Who We Are New Hampshire Ave Gospel Chapel is a group of believers who gather together in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ in Silver Spring, Maryland. The assembly was first established in Washington, DC in 1916. Many changes have taken place as to location and those who gather, but through the years one thing has remained the same: We desire to gather unto Christ alone according to the Scriptures and to bring glory and honor to the Name of the Lord by preaching the gospel ("good news") in our community. If you would like to know more about us, visit the links or visit our page to talk to a representative of the assembly. contact Chapel History The Assembly of Christian Believers meeting in the Name and to the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, now commonly known as the New Hampshire Avenue Gospel Chapel, was first established in Washington, D.C. on April 30, 1916, in the home of Mr.& Mrs. Frank Ruebsam, at 5224 Illinois Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. Later, though the precise dates are not known, the Assembly moved several times. After the home of the Ruebsams, the Assembly met at the home of Mr. & Mrs. Nicholas Fillmann, at Twining City, NW, Washington, D.C. Thereafter, the Assembly moved (due to growth needs) and met in rented premises at 1420 H Street, NE, Washington, D.C. Thence, the Assembly met in a rented building at 245 15th Street, SE, Washington, D.C. In 1938, the Assembly constructed its own building at 5720 South Dakota Avenue, NE, Washington, D.C. The Assembly incorporated itself on February 1, 1938, as Christians Gathered unto the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ under the laws of the District of Columbia. The Assembly was then known as the Chillum Heights Gospel Chapel. As the Assembly grew and the communicant members followed the suburban outflow, it sold its Chillum Heights building, whilst the current building at 12608 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, Maryland, was under construction. During this interregnum, the Assembly held its meetings at the Seventh Day Adventist church building at Riggs Road, Adelphi, Maryland. Construction having been completed, the Assembly moved into its new building at New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, and held its first meetings on May 24, 1964. The event was covered by the Washington Post and the meetings were conducted by Guest Speakers Alfred P. Gibbs of Waynesboro, Georgia, and George M. Landis of Fayetteville, Pennsylvania. The Post reported that the building cost around $90,000 and contains a nave seating 200, a social hall with kitchen, six classrooms and church office. The baptistery at the rear of the chancel has a blue glass partition which is reflected in the blue pew cushions and a blue glass partition separating the nave from the foyer. The ceiling is supported by laminated wood arches. Chillum Heights Gospel Chapel then became known as the New Hampshire Avenue Gospel Chapel. The Assembly re-incorporated itself in the State of Maryland on March 27th, 1981. [Sources: NHAGC legal documents and Washington Post] "Remember the former things of old, For I am God and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning..., saying, "My counsel shall stand and I will do all My pleasure." Isaiah 46:9-10 Belief Statement We believe the Bible to be the inerrant Word of God to man (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The Bible reveals the ruin of men and women because of their inherent sin nature (Romans 3:23-24). The only means of reconciliation with God is by individual faith in the finished and substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins (1 Peter 2:24). The believer is eternally secure, kept by God's power (1 Peter 1:3-5). We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ (Luke 1:26-32), His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26), His vicarious death for us (1 Corinthians 15:3), His bodily resurrection (Matthew 28: 1-10) and His bodily ascension to Heaven (Acts 1: 9-11). We believe Jesus Christ will return to Earth again, first in the clouds in the air to take His people to be with Him forever (1 Thessalonians 4:14-18), and then to establish His Kingdom, having first judged the ungodly who will be committed to eternal punishment in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-15). We believe in one universal Church, consisting of all believers past, present and future (Ephesians 4:4-6). Until Jesus Christ returns, believers should gather in assemblies (local churches) to remember the Lord Jesus Christ in the Lord's supper, for worship, prayer, Bible studies, nurturing other believers, fellowship (Acts 2:42), and evangelism (Matthew 29:19-20). We believe in the priesthood of all believers (1 Peter 2:9) and practice immersion baptism of believers (Acts 2:41). "He who gives attention to the Word will find good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord." Proverbs 16:20 Who are the Elders? Butch Rucker Jijo Antony Jim Jacob Michael Bryan PT Tan Sam Poulose

  • Sunday School | nhagc

    SUNDAY SCHOOL To teach children Biblical truth and reach them with the Gospel Goal: ​ Every Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Time: ​ We have seven classes that range from toddlers (2 years old) through high school. Ages: ​ At NHAGC our Sunday School time begins with the entire congregation where we sing choruses together and the children have an opportunity to answer quiz questions from the previous week’s lesson and recite their memory verse. After the open exercises, the children are dismissed to classes downstairs where they are taught age appropriate lessons based firmly in the Bible. What to Expect: ​ We use Answers in Genesis’s Sunday School Curriculum First Edition, which systematically goes through scripture over a three-year period, starting with Genesis and ending in Revelation. We are not affiliated with Answers in Genesis and do not endorse nor disagree with any specific belief of theirs, but choose their material because we felt their Bible-centric approach combined with their weekly practical applications and gospel message provided a solid foundation of Christian training for our youth. Curriculum: ​ Each December the Sunday School puts on a Christmas Program open to all the children; and each June we host a Sunday School picnic that the whole chapel is invited out to. In the Summer months of July and August we have what we call Open Sunday School where the older kids (5th grade and above) stay upstairs with the rest of the congregation while the younger kids stay downstairs for combined activities that mix fun and learning. Activities:
