Who We Are
Calvary Chapel has been formed as an independent body of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Our supreme desire is to know and love Christ and be conformed to His image; and to love and serve one another as a manifestation of His love in our lives. Our aim, in an atmosphere of grace, is to build a community of believers who are grounded in God’s Word, doctrinally sound, and genuinely loving, so we might live radical, biblically authenticate lives, in our homes, our church, and our community thereby impacting our culture and the world for Jesus Christ.
By the Grace and Mercy of God we seek to do this through an unwavering commitment to the gospel, expositional teaching, genuine love and compassion, and biblical discipleship. We believe this to be our highest privilege and most important priority in every area of ministry.
Therefore, We hold very deeply the following four convictions:
- The Bible is our infallible standard for faith, doctrine, and practice. Those who resist its authority will be blown off course by their feelings and cultural trends.
- Knowledge without application is lifeless. In order to be transformed, we must apply and practice the truth of God’s Word in daily life.
- Application of these principles is impossible apart from the Holy Spirit. While we must participate in change, he is the source of power.
- The church is God’s intended context for change. God never intended for us to live isolated from or independent of other Christians. Through committed participation in the local church, we find instruction, encouragement, correction, and opportunities to press on toward maturity in Christ.
