WHO WE ARE |
Praise Chapel is a progressive ministry relating to the unique needs of the Southern California culture, yet aggressive in reaching those who society has overlooked. Walking into our church, you will find a diverse group of people that come from all walks of life, who find common ground in the life-transforming power of God. It is obvious that this group is not trying to cover up who they are, but rather the uniqueness of every individual is celebrated at Praise Chapel in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. No doubt, there is a place for everyone here at Praise Chapel.
WHAT WE BELIEVE |
PC holds the conviction that the Bible is God’s Word to the church today. It is just as fresh and relevant to today’s believer as it was centuries ago, bringing freedom to soul and joy to the heart of those who practice the divine truths within. We practice our faith in the freedom found only in Jesus Christ, and operate in the promised power of His Holy Spirit. From the music to the message, we have a genuine passion for Jesus, life, and family.
OUR STORY |
Praise Chapel Christian Fellowship of Orange County was established in 1985, when Carl and Bonnie Friedrich felt directed of the Lord to leave their Arizona home and business to begin a new church in Orange County, California. The church grew rapidly as young people who were caught up in the drug alcohol and gang culture gave their hearts to Jesus Christ. These radically transformed converts began to believe the message from God's Word that they could change the world in which they lived, and began witnessing their salvation to anyone who would listen. Now over 25 years later, PCCF has evolved into a dynamic church home to a vibrant multiracial congregation that has reproduced into a fellowship of 40 like-minded churches. Just one visit to the Orange County church will reveal an exciting, relevant and fun place to worship.
