At Calvary we believe theology is vitally important. What we believe about God and his Word provides the foundation and guide for everything in our lives. Our Statement of Faith details the central beliefs of our church.
- The Holy Bible was written by men who were divinely influenced.
- There is one and only one living and true God. The never-ending God shows Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- Man is the special creation of God. Man is made in God’s likeness.
- Salvation is given to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
- Becoming one of God’s children is the caring work of God. He accepts us just as we are.
- A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an independent local congregation of baptized believers.
- Baptism is the picture of the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour. Baptism is also required before taking the Lord’s Supper.
- The first day of the week is the Lord’s Day.
- The Kingdom of God includes His general rule over the universe.
- God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its right end.
- It is the job and honor of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to try to make disciples of the people from all nations.
- In Jesus Christ are all the riches of understanding and learning.
- Christians have a spiritual responsibility to the whole world. (To share the gospel and be good stewards of our time, money and possessions.)
- Christ’s people should, as time requires, plan associations and conventions that will best get cooperation for the Kingdom of God.
- All Christians have a responsibility to try to make the will of Christ first in our own lives and in the world.
- It is the duty of Christians to try to find peace with all men.
- God alone is Lord of what is right and wrong.
- God has planned the family as the first institution of the world. It is made up of persons joined to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
