WE BELIEVE that God the Father is the personal, transcendent and sovereign Creator of all things.

WE BELIEVE in the inerrancy of Scripture; that the Bible, the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired and infallible Word of God.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is fully God. That He was born of a virgin, and lived a fully human and sinless life to provide atonement for our sins by His substitutionary death on the Cross. After which, He was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.

WE BELIEVE worship of God should be both intelligent and spiritual. Therefore, our services are structured to teach verse by verse, chapter by chapter and book by book (contrasted to topical teaching) that we may receive the richness of God’s fertile Word in its entirety. And that the Holy Spirit who indwells each believer, guides us on how the Father would have us worship Him.

WE BELIEVE worship of God is fruitful. Therefore, we look for changed hearts and lives as the supreme manifestation of His love, and evidence that we have truly been worshiping Him.

WE BELIEVE that worship of God is also inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.

CALVARY CHAPEL has been formed as a Fellowship of Believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a Denominational Church, nor are we opposed to Denominations as such, only to their over-emphasis on non-essential doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.
WE BELIEVE that the true basis of Christian Fellowship is Christ’s (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences that people possess. And without which, we must question whether we are truly following Christ.
