About Us

 

Calvary Church is a member of the National Association of the Free Will Baptist.  Below is a summary of what we believe in the specific areas of the Christian faith. Please contact us if you have any questions, and we will be happy to discuss our faith with you.

 

The Bible

The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by the inspiration of God, and are our infallible rule of faith and practice.

 

God

There is one living and true God, revealed in nature as the Creator of the universe; and in Scriptures as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

 

Christ

Christ in God manifest in the flesh; in his divine nature truly God, in His human nature truly man. The mediator between God and man, once crucified, He is now risen and glorified, and is our ever present Savior and Lord.

 

The Holy Spirit 

The Scriptures assign the Holy Spirit all the attributes of God.

 

The Sinfulness of Man

Man was created innocent, but by disobedience fell into a state of sin and condemnation.

 

The Work of Christ

The Son of God by His incarnation, life, sufferings, death, and resurrection effected for all a redemption from sin that is full and free, and is the ground of salvation by faith.

 

The Terms of Salvation

The conditions of salvation are: 1) Repentance for sin. 2) Faith or the unreserved committal of one’s self to Christ as Saviour and Lord with purpose to love and obey Him in all things.

 

Freedom of the Will

The human will is free and self-controlled, having power to yield to the influence of life freely.

 

Perseverance

All believers in Christ, who through grace persevere in holiness to the end of life, have promise of eternal salvation.

 

Tithing

God commended tithes and offerings. “Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him” (1 Cor. 16:2a)

 

The Christian Sabbath

The divine law requires that one in the seven be set apart from secular employments and amusements, for rest, worship, holy works, activities, and for personal communion with God.

 

Resurrection, Judgment, and Final Retribution

The Scripture teach the resurrection of all man at the last day. Those who have done good will come forth to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation; then the wicked will “go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
