What We Believe

Faith Statement

Calvary Chapel is a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to know Christ and to be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe worship of God should be spiritual, therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
We believe worship of God should be intelligent, therefore we emphasize Bible teaching in our services so God may instruct us how He would be worshiped. We believe worship of God is fruitful, therefore we look for His love in our lives as evidence that we are truly worshiping Him.

Our Beliefs

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe in water baptism and communion open to all believers. (Acts 2:38; I Corinthians 11:23-30; Luke 3:3)
We believe in the laying on of hands for the Holy Spirit, for receiving gifts of the Spirit, for healing and for recognition and empowering of those whom God has ordained to lead and serve the church. (Acts 13:3; Mark 6:5; I Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6)
