Statement of Faith
The Calvary Chapel Church has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the body of Christ.
WE BELIEVE that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
WE BELIEVE worship of God should be Spiritual.
Therefore: We remain flexible and yielded to the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE worship of God should be Inspirational.
Therefore: We give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE worship of God should be Intelligent.
Therefore: Our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE worship of God is Fruitful.
Therefore: We look for His Love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshipping Him.
Equipping the saints for the work of ministry.
Calvary Chapel Chico is a non-denominational Christian fellowship established to fulfill the great commission:
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20, NKJV)
Knowing we were created by Jesus and for Jesus and that our sin separates us from Jesus.
To reconcile lost sinners to Jesus
To disciple the saved in Jesus
To send out fully-equipped workers for Jesus
Our pastors and teachers employ the grammatical, historical, method of Bible study. We teach through the Bible in a systematic, expository fashion, book by book.
We meet Saturday evenings at 6:00, Sunday mornings at 8:00, 9:45 and 11:30, and Wednesday evenings at 7:00. Ministries for all ages, including nursery through high school, are provided at each of these services. Our Young Adult Bible Study meets Thursday at 7:00 PM for ages 18 and up.
