Our desire at Calvary Chapel is to build a community of mature believers grounded in the Word of God. We seek to do this through uncompromised teaching, genuine compassion, and an unwavering commitment to the gospel.
At every level, our commitment is to bring the truth of Godâ€™s Word to bear upon the lives of our hearers in a clear, practical and relevant way, so they will be better equipped to live biblically authentic lives in their home, church, community, and world. We believe this to be our highest privilege and the most significant priority in every area of ministry.
We hold the following four convictions:
1. The Bible is our infallible standard for faith, doctrine, and practice. Those who resist its authority will be blown off course by their feelings and cultural trends.
2. Knowledge without application is lifeless. To be transformed, we must apply and practice the truth of Godâ€™s Word in daily life.
3. The application of these principles is impossible, apart from the Holy Spirit. While we must participate in change, he is the source of power.
4. The church is Godâ€™s intended context for change. God never intended for us to live isolated from or independent of other Christians. Through committed participation in the local church, we find instruction, encouragement, correction, and opportunities to press on toward maturity in Christ.
We really appreciate the service you offer. You have always been very responsive to any questions or problems we had. The greatest encouragement to me through your site is to receive the monthly reports and to see how many sermons have been downloaded and where people are listening in to our sermons. Its a blessing to know that a church like ours in rural, northern California can literally have an impact around the world.
