what we believe

statement of faith

Calvary Chapel Apple Valley has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our utmost desire is to know Christ and to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Our goal is to reach people with the Gospel message in order to bring them to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Bible is inspired by God in its entirety, and is without error in the original autographs, a complete and final written revelation from God. 

We believe that there is only one God, who is eternal and immutable, and manifests Himself in three distinct Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah, born of a virgin, totally without sin, God in human flesh, the One who died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose again from the dead on the third day, and ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven, where He now intercedes for us who believe in Him.

We believe that Jesus Christ is going to return in the clouds for His church before the tribulation that is coming on the whole earth, and that He will return with His saints and all His holy angels to the earth at the end of the tribulation, and set up His kingdom on earth, ruling and reigning forever and ever.

We believe that all humanity is lost and born with a sinful nature, and can only be saved by a personal faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and not by any human merit or performance.

We believe that heaven is a real place where the saved will dwell forever, and that hell is a literal place of torment where unbelievers will suffer forever.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a Godly Life.  We further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today and operational in the church.

We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give a great place to music in our service.

We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.

We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look to His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping him.

We believe marriage has been ordained by God.  Therefore, we recognize marriage as exclusively the legal union of one man and one woman in which such union is a lifetime commitment. Also, the Bible is clear that legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage.
