WHAT WE BELIEVE
Calvary Christian Church is comprised of people from many backgrounds and of various ages and ethnicities. Some people have a previous church background while many people have never been part of a church prior to joining Calvary.
Most people at Calvary have already made a decision to follow Jesus Christ but a number of people are still on a journey of discovery, having not yet made a personal commitment. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’ve been or what you’ve done, we are thrilled to have you join with us as, together, we understand more of God’s plan through Jesus for each one of us.
Following is a simple summary of the key things we believe as a church.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe Jesus Christ is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe 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 God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.
We believe that our eternal destination is determined by our response to Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
