About Chilhowie Christian Church:
Chilhowie Christian Church is an independent, non-denominational Christian church with approximately 350 regular attendees. Our worship services include both traditional and contemporary services with morning and evening services held each Sunday along with a Wednesday evening bible study and youth classes. We attempt to make our worship multi-sensory, enabling all who attend to feel they have an opportunity to participate. We attempt to be innovative in our programming and value each generation in our church family.
Chilhowie Christian Church is located in Chilhowie, Virginia, a small town nestled in the foothills of beautiful Southwest Virginia. The town of Chilhowie is located along the Interstate 81 corridor in the southwestern part of Smyth County, with a county population of approximately 31,500 residents. The borders of Chilhowie Christian Church reach far beyond the small community in which we are located. Although our church is over 115 years old, we are deeply committed to a “mission” approach to ministry. We believe the message of the Gospel must never change, but the methods must be constantly reviewed, updated, and implemented to stay on mission effectively. We recognize the extraordinary importance of our children and youth ministries, and are dedicated to a multi-generational approach of reaching the lost and edifying the saved. We also recognize the serious issues most churches have in keeping their students active and engaged in a formal church setting. Chilhowie Christian Church seeks to be a place where youth continue to seek Christ, even after they graduate from high school and/or college. Our goal is to connect our students, not just with our youth group, but with God and his church, the body of Christ. We believe that integration and engagement comes from a strong family foundation, as we strive to connect our students with multiple Christian adults, and engage them in Christian service opportunities.
Our Vision for the Youth: Chilhowie Christian Church is a place where God is building Christ-Driven 24/7 Christians
Our Mission: “Seek the Lost, Edify the Saved, and Help the Needy”. We take our mission very seriously and the Bible is our final authority.
