What's it all about...

Chameleon Church is a gathering of non-denominational / Spirit filled Believers of the Way - Established in the Scriptural roots of our faith and advocating the One New Man.

Chameleon Church is an equipping ministry in the areas of discipleship, worship, ministry and Kingdom lifestyle.

Chameleon (Hebrew Koach "ko'-akh"): adapts to any climate, any economy, any environment, any situation or circumstance and creates an atmosphere conducive to - and the resources necessary for - its own success

But you shall remember ADONAI your God, because it is he who is giving you the power (ko'-akh: chameleon like ability) to get wealth, in order to confirm his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as is happening even today.
Deuteronomy 8:18

Church (Hebrew Qahal "kaw-hawl'": a united assembly or gathering

Scriptural Roots: But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect of Judaism, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Torah ("the Law") and in the Prophets.
Paul the Apostle / Rabbi Saul in Acts 24:14

One New Man: Therefore remember that you, Gentiles by birth - called the Uncircumcised by those who, merely because of an operation on their flesh, are called the Circumcised - that you were at that time separate from Messiah, You were estranged, alienated, from the commonwealth of Isra'el. You were foreigners to the covenants embodying God's promise. You were in this world without hope and without God. But now, you who were once far off have been brought near through the shedding of the Messiah's blood. For He Himself is our peace - he has made us both one and has broken down the middle wall of separation which divided us by destroying in his own body the hostility, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and in order to reconcile to God both in a single body by being executed on a stake as a criminal and, thereby putting to death the enmity.
Paul the Apostle / Rabbi Saul in Ephesians 2:11-16

Spirit Filled
We believe in the physical manifestation of the Holy Spirit, here, on earth. We also believe in the supernatural giftings of this same Spirit, here, on earth. Mark 16:17-18; 1 Corinthians 12, 14
The Way
Christianity was originally known as "The Way", a sect of Judaism (Acts 9:2, 24:14). These new believers were also known as Nazarenes (Acts 24:5) because they followed the man from Nazareth, Jesus.
Scriptural Roots
Jesus was the prophesied Hebrew Messiah of Israel. The Apostle Paul taught that Gentiles, non-Jewish peoples, are "grafted" into the Olive Tree of the House of Israel. Gentiles do not support the root of this tree, the root supports them. Romans 11
One New Man
Without Jesus, Gentiles were aliens and strangers to Israel and their covenants of promise. Gentiles were brought near by the blood of Jesus, who broke down the wall of separation between them through His death, creating in Himself one new man from the two. Ephesians 2:11-16

Frequently asked ?'s

We obviously get a lot of questions thrown our way so we've listed just a sample. If you have one of your own, feel free to ask!

Are you trying to be Jewish?
No, but we do love the Jewish people. We're just pursuing being scriptural. It just so happens that the two can be synonymous which can lead to some confusion. Jesus actually warns against those who say they are Jewish and are not. Revelation 2:9, 3:9
You don't look or act like "church people"...
Thanks! That's because we're busy imitating Jesus. This means we fraternize with the poor and homeless - drug addicts - prostitutes and tax collectors - the disenfranchised... and the occasional yuppie!
What if I don't believe in this "Jesus"? Can I still hang out?
Sure! If you want to hang out with a community in mutual respect for one another, awesome! If you're interested in causing drama, we'll sic the bouncers on ya!
Didn't Paul teach against "the Law"?
No. He followed it and taught others to do so as well! Jesus and the New Testament writers taught against the traditions and customs that had developed around the Law. Too many verses to cite here. Come hang out and see for yourself!
