About Us

We are Ephesians Community Church.  We were chosen by God before He formed the worlds.
Ephesians 1:4. According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:  5. Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6. To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Pastor James and Lady Barbara Chatman have more than twenty years of leadership and pastoral experience.  Together they bring a fresh viewpoint to our church regarding the coming Messiah. 

Their steadfast belief in practicing the great commission of Christ brings the gospel of Jesus Christ into clear focus.  The message Jesus preached and commanded those who follow Him is “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

They came to our church in the middle of the 2020 pandemic after the death of our beloved Pastor Sylvester Vann.  We rejoice in the expectation that God will fulfill His promises to us of a great outpouring of His spirit to usher in a season of end time revival.  We at Ephesians, join with them to bring the witness to the world that it is no longer church as usual.  Obedience to Christ requires using our time talent and resources to bring the gospel to the masses.  Every believer must acknowledge his or her sin and commit to change and become obedient to Christ alone.

We believe in miracles. I have personally experienced true miracles from God. I invite you to participate with me in calling down a miracle of healing for our city. No more business as usual because it is not church as usual. Hebrews 6, talks about going beyond the principles. If we are to be the Church, the bride of Christ, we must go beyond the principles to the next level. The next level is not social media, although we must use it. It is not smoke and lights in the celebration, though that’s all right. The next level is “Kingdom Focus” with kingdom equipping. If you take the command of our Lord in Matthew 28:19-20 seriously, then we are your church. Come see what the Lord is doing. Each one, reach one. One by one we win the world to our King’s government.

The book “The King Is Coming” written by Pastor James, gives every believer a clear picture of our Lord’s expectation for those He chose and called.  Together we will witness to a dying world the availability of the Holy Spirit to create in them new life through Jesus Christ.  The power of God the creator is available to us if we only believe.  Those chosen for life will receive the gospel that Christ preached and receive the power He sent to us.
