 OUR BELIEFS

 

One True and Living God

There is one true and living God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all equal in power and glory. This triune God created all things, upholds all things, and governs all things. God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and present everywhere. 1 John 5:7-8

The Bible

The Bible consists of the 66 books of the Old and New Testament. The Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. It is God's mind to us. 2 Timothy 3:162 Peter 1:20-21

God the Father

God the Father is an infinite, personal Spirit perfect in every way: holiness, wisdom, power, and love. He hears and answers prayer and interacts with mankind. 1 Corinthians 8:6Ephesians 4:6James 1:17

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit - fully God and fully man. Born of a virgin, as predicted by Scripture, He lived a sinless life and performed miracles while on Earth. He accepted death on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins and was raised from the dead on the third day. He revealed himself to many before returning to Heaven as predicted in Scripture. We believe He will return to earth again. John 1:1Romans 1:4Colossians 1:15Colossians 2:91 Timothy 3:16Galatians 4:4Philippians 2:81 Timothy 2:52 Corinthians 5:211 Corinthians 15:3-51 Thessalonians 4:16

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. We believe that at salvation the Holy Spirit regenerates and indwells and seals every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is our comforter, helper, teacher, and guide. (1 Corinthians 12:13Matthew 12:31Ephesians 4:4-6John 14:26) The Holy Spirit helps to conform us to the likeness of Christ. We also believe that the Holy Spirit empowers us to live as witnesses for Christ and that comes from an experience of the Holy Spirit coming upon a believer to empower them as we see in the book of Acts. That event of being filled or baptized in the Spirit needs to translate into a lifestyle of continuing to be filled, led, and empowered by the Holy Spirit as Paul teaches in Ephesians 5:18. We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to His church today just like they were in the Early Church. John 14:16-17;John 16:7-11;Titus 3:5-6;Romans 8:9;1 Corinthians 6:19-20;Ephesians 1:13-14;Acts 1:8;Titus 3:5-6;Romans 12:6-8;1 Corinthians 12-14;1 Peter 4:10-11

Humanity

Our sin separates us from a Holy God. We all sin, both by nature and by choice. The only way we can have a relationship with God is by turning from our sin and accepting Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord. Romans 3:21-26

Water Baptism and Communion

We water baptize new believers and regularly take communion. These practices were instituted by Christ, taught by the apostles, and practiced by the early church. God's ordinances demonstrate our living faith and obedience to Christ. Matthew 28:19-201 Corinthians 11:23-25

Marriage

We believe that God created mankind male and female. Men and women are both created in the image of God, and as such, they are equal in value, dignity, and worth, but different in function so as to complement and complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. Therefore, we perform marriages in accordance with the Bible consistent with the Old and New Testament precepts 1 Corinthians 7:1-3Genesis 2:24Matthew 19:4-6

CALVARY CHAPEL MISSION STATEMENT

 

WIN a person to Jesus Christ - New converts bring excitement and infuse freshness into a body.

He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”  Mark 16:15   

DISCIPLE a person in Jesus Christ - Equipping believers gets them grounded in the Word.  During this disciplining process, the person is being conformed to be like Jesus Christ.  God has left all believers here on earth so that the Holy Spirit might indwell and empower them:

             To think like Jesus thought……………………………….. Mind of Christ

            To minister like Jesus did………………………………….. Works or Ministry of Christ

      To be like Jesus…………………………………………………. Character of Christ

 “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”    Matthew 28:19 -20

SEND a person for Jesus Christ - The world is in darkness and surviving without hope.  Christians have been called to go and bring light and hope to these hurting people.  We must have the compassion of Jesus.

 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8
