The sole basis for our belief comes from the Bible in its entirety. It is the inspired, inerrant Word of God and is the final authority on all matters on which it bears. We believe the Bible teaches that there is one infinite and personal God who is eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
God created mankind to have a loving relationship with Him, but we defied God by sinfully rejecting Him. As a result, each one of us needs God's saving grace to end our separation from Him. This grace comes as a result of Jesus Christ, who is both fully God and fully man, dying on the cross and rising from the dead. It was upon the cross He completely paid the price of our sinfulness and is now offering the gift of eternal life. If a person wants to receive this gift, he/she must repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation.
We believe Jesus Christ will return to earth again. Until that time, our purpose at City Calvary Chapel is to:
1. Love God and grow in our relationship with Him through worship, prayer, and sturying the Bible (Equip)
2. Love and serve each otherin the Body of Christ; and (Community)
3. Love the people of our world by sharing the saving message of Christ. (Outreach)
Our Statement of Faith has helped us formulate our vision & purpose of our church. We believe it is capsulized in the acronym of CEO. WHAT IS CEO? Our desire at City Calvary Chapel is for all of our ministries to work in unison. That is why we formed the CEO vision of how the various ministries would serve as a whole.
CEO stands for:
Love God and grow in our relationship with Him through worship, prayer, and studying the Bible;
Love and serve each other in the body of Christ;
Love the people of our world by sharing the saving message of Jesus Christ.
Each of the ministries at City Calvary Chapel falls into one (or more) of these three categories. To provide more direction for each ministry, the leaders focus their ministry to achieve either a deeper community, or equipping and discipling of the body, or as an outreach to the city or abroad.
