About us

WORD

We believe that the Bible is GOD inspired. The Bible is infallible and authoritative and completely relevant to address man’s condition and reveals GOD’s solution.

When we study the Word of GOD, there will be impact in our lives as we yield to its authority.

When we study the Word of GOD, there will be instruction for our lives as we apply its truth.

When we study the Word of GOD, there will be a greater love for the GOD of the Word as we learn more about HIS nature, plan and love for our lives.


WORSHIP

As the Word of GOD flows into our hearts, Worship to GOD flows out of our hearts as the result. Worship is our opportunity to corporately express our love and thankfulness to JESUS, for all HE has accomplished for us through the cross of Calvary.

Worship is the language of the church; it is our offering of praise and thanksgiving to GOD.

Worship is our expression of love to the GOD of all creation, who created us in the womb.

Worship is our commonality as believers, that promotes unity within the church. 


WITNESS

We read in the book of Acts when the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and Jesus said that they would be witnesses to the world, first in Jerusalem, then Judea, Samaria and to the world. As our lives are being transformed and we are daily yielding to the Holy Spirit we too are witnesses of GOD’s work in us changing us from glory to glory.

Witnesses to one another of GOD’s power and love, encouraging each other within the Church.

Witnesses to the world of GOD’s mercy and love, sharing and showing GOD’s love to the lost.

Calvary Chapel has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only to their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the body of Christ.


AGAPE LOVE

We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s agape love, which is greater than any difference we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.


WORSHIP

We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship. We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship. We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshipped. We believe worshipping God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshipping Him.


DOCTRINE

We believe in all the basic doctrines of historic Christianity. We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture and that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, are the inspired, infallible Word of God. We believe that God is eternally existent in three distinct Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things. We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His substitutionary death on the cross, was bodily raised from the dead, ascended back to the right hand of the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.


ESCHATOLOGY

We believe in the personal, visible, and pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth. He will return with His saints and set up a kingdom of which there will be no end. After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.


THE GOSPEL

We believe that all people are, by nature, separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.


HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures, and that they are valid for today if they are exercised within the Scriptural guidelines. We as believers are to covet the best gifts, seeking to exercise them in love that the whole Body of Christ might be edified. We believe that love is more important than the most spectacular gifts and that without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.
