our vision

Engage- presenting the Gospel to a lost world

"As many as received Him (Jesus) to them He gave the power to become children of God, even those who believe in His name." (John 1:12; John 3:16)

Equip- making disciples for Jesus Christ

The purpose of the church is to equip believers for the work of the ministry. (Ephesians 4:12)

Encourage- sending a Person for Jesus Christ

To train believers maturing in His Word, to respond to God's calling and enabling, to go forth and serve as He directs. (Matt. 28:18-20, 2 Tim. 2:2, 1 Peter 4:11, 2 Cor. 5:18-20).

statement of faith

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.

We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ's (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.

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 worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshipping Him. We believe in all the fundamental doctrines of orthodox evangelical Christianity.

  • What We Believe

We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New 

Testaments is the inspired, infallible Word of God.

We believe that God is eternally existent in three separate persons: Father, Son 

and Holy Spirit.

We believe that God the Father 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 vicarious 

death on the Cross, was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, 

ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make

intercession for us.

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.

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 personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to 

save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit. 

All their sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, 

destined to spend eternity with the Lord.

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 without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.

We believe that church government should be simplistic rather than a complex bureaucracy,           and we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead, rather than on fleshly promotion.

We await the pre-tribulation rapture of the church, and we believe that the second coming of Christ with His saints to rule on the earth will be personal, pre-millennial, and visible. This motivates us to holy living, heartfelt worship, committed service, diligent study of God's Word, regular fellowship,   and participation in adult baptism by immersion and Holy Communion.

We seek to teach the Word of God in such a way that its message can be applied to an individual's life, leading that person to greater maturity in Christ.
