STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

 

We believe the whole Bible to be completely and equally inspired and that it is the written Word of God. We at Calvary Church has adopted the following Declaration of Faith as its standard and official expression of its doctrine.

 

We Believe

 

  • In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.​

  • In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

  • That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

 

  • That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

 

  • In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.

 

  • Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.

 

  • We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water by immersion in and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.

  • We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer, Bible study and the ‘breaking of bread’.

 

  • We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

 

  • We believe that God wants to heal, deliver and transform us so we can be in a position to help others more effectively.

 

  • In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

 

  • In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
