WHAT WE BELIEVE

Calvary is a Bible-based church. We believe that God changes, transforms and restores the lives of individuals through the power of the Holy Spirit.

THE BIBLE

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error and is the authority for salvation and Christian living.

2 Timothy 3:15-17.

GOD

There is one God. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit).

Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16.

SIN AND SALVATION

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection).

Acts 2:4; 37-39; Romans 6:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4.

CHRISTIAN LIVING

As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.

Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10.

THE FUTURE

Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgement. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous will inherit eternal death.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15.
