WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God
(II Timothy 3:16)
We believe that there is one true and living God
(Ephesians 4:5; Deuteronomy 6:4)
whose name is Jesus Christ
We believe in the salvation of sinners by repentance, water baptism, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit
(Acts 2:38; 8:16; 19:5)
We believe that the evidence of Holy Spirit infilling is speaking in other tongues (Acts 10:45-46)
We believe that life doesn’t end with the death of our human bodies on this earth. We believe in eternal life for those who obey the salvation plan as it is written in the Word, and eternal punishment for those who reject God and the truth of His Word.
(John 5:24; 3:16, Mark 9:43-50; II Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15)
WHO WE ARE
"We are a group of Spirit-filled, apostolic believers associated with the United Pentecostal Church, International."
What does it mean to be apostolic? To put it simply, to be Apostolic is to be like the Apostles. The term “Apostles” refers the first century church leaders whose lives and ministries were recorded in the New Testament Book of Acts. In Acts, certain attributes were used to describe the first century church and its leaders. If a characteristic, quality, or attitude defined the early church, we want the same to be present and active in our church.
At Calvary, we make it our goal to use these Book of Acts principles as the foundation for the ministries and programs in our church. Do we do it perfectly every single time? Of course not. We’re human, and will certainly make mistakes. But we attempt to model our lives, and our church, after the Book of Acts church as much as we possibly can.
