The Church

We are just normal people who love Jesus! We have all had our struggles and challenges in life, and we are all in need of God's Amazing Grace which He extends through faith in Jesus!


That means, no matter where you are at in life, or where you have been, you are welcome here. We invite you to come and learn more about Jesus Christ. We want everyone to experience the abundant life He promises now and forever with Him in eternity. 


Calvary Chapel is a non-denominational church that welcomes people from all backgrounds. 

Our Mission: The 4 E's

Engage

We desire to engage in the reality of Jesus Christ. We want to know Him and be known by Him. We do this through the teaching and study of the Bible, the Word of God. Peter says it so perfectly in John 6:68, ""But Simon Peter answered Him, 'Lord, to whom shall we go? You (Jesus) have the words of eternal life.'" We desire this truth to be a reality in our everyday lives as the church body, both individually and corporately.

Equip

We desire to equip the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). As Christians we have all been given gifts, received callings and stewarded responsibilities. We desire the disciples of Jesus Christ to discover and fulfill their God-given roles in their families, in the church, in the workplace, in their neighborhoods and on mission in the world. The church is the place where we equip Christians for the work of the ministry.

empower

Jesus gave His disciples specific instructions in Luke 24:49 & Acts 1:4, telling them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father. To wait until they have received power from on high. Jesus was speaking of receiving the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the empowerment for the Christian life. The Holy Spirit is the Helper  that Jesus spoke of in John 16. We desire to live the empowered life Jesus has granted us. There is no other way to live out the call and commission we have received. We must be praying and seeking always to be being filled with the Holy Spirit to walk out the Christian life in His strength and supply (Ephesians 5:18).

evangelize

We are on mission with Jesus. This mission, this call is to go into all the world and make disciples. To spread the good news of the gospel of grace, to baptize in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and to teach all that was commanded us. This is the heart beat and mission of the church (Matthew 28:19-20). 

Statement of faith

godhead

WE BELIEVE that there is only one true God, revealed in three Persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).






Jesus

WE BELIEVE in the eternal deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. In His incarnation, He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and performed miracles. His death provided salvation to all who would believe in Him. He was then resurrected bodily, and ascended to the right hand of the Father in Heaven.

The Word

WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the Word of God, and that every word of Scripture has been inspired by God to infallibly declare His design and plan for mankind.



Salvation

WE BELIEVE that although mankind willingly fell to sin, ushering evil, death and separation from God into the world, every person can be restored to fellowship with God through “salvation” (trusting Jesus Christ, through faith and repentance from sin, to be one’s personal Savior and Lord).


statement of faith cont.

holy spirit

WE BELIEVE that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a further encounter that every believer may have with God’s Spirit, in addition to salvation, which empowers us for witnessing, effective service, and transformation into the image of Jesus, just as it did in the New Testament times.







baptism & communion

WE BELIEVE in and practice two ordinances: 1) water baptism by immersion after receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and 2) the Lord’s Supper as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.

rapture

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

church

WE BELIEVE in the universal Church, in the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members.
