CALVARY CHAPEL has been formed as a fellowship
of believers under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be
conformed into His image by the power of the
Holy Spirit. We are non-denominational, but that does
not mean we are opposed to denominations. We only
oppose the over-emphasis of our doctrinal differences
that lead to divisions within the body of Christ. (1 Cor 1:12-13)
WE BELIEVE the bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2Tim. 3:16, 2Peter 1:21).
WE BELIEVE there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Spirit (Gen. 1:1, Matt. 28:19, John 10:30).
WE BELIEVE in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:23, Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Heb. 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25, 1Cor. 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11).
WE BELIEVE in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation; that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, are we saved (John 3:16-19, 5:24, Rom. 3:23, 5:8-9, Eph. 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of life, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29; Rev 20).
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:9, 1Cor. 12:12-13, Gal. 3:26-28).
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whom indwells and enables the Christian to live a Godly life (Rom. 8:13-14, 1Cor. 3:16).
