Calvary Life Center
What We Believe
The basic and fundamental doctrine of this Church shall be the Bible standard of salvation (Acts 2:36-47) which is:
Acceptance and confession of the truth that Jesus Christ is the One and Only LORD GOD ALMIGHTY incarnate to be our Saviour (He is both the Deity and also Human: Acts 2:36-37A; Isaiah 43:10-12; John 8:19-24; Colossians 2:8-10; Acts 4:10-12);
Recognition of one’s fallen, sinful condition (Acts 2:37A; Jeremiah 17:9; John 3:19-21; 1 John 1:8-10; Acts 7:51-53);
Sincere seeking after the will of God for one’s own life (Acts 2:37B; Isaiah 55:6; John 5:39; Hebrews 11:6; Acts 17:27);
Repentance (Acts 2:38A; Ezekiel 14:6-8; Luke 13:3; 2 Corinthians 7:10; Acts 26:20);
Baptism by immersion in water in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38B; Isaiah 1:16-18; Luke 24:45-48; Hebrews 10:17-18; Acts 10:43);
Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Acts 2:38C-39; Joel 2:28-29; John 20:22; Ephesians 5:18; Acts 19:5-6);
Living a life of Holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord, which includes abiding by the standards of righteousness established by the Pastor of this congregation (Acts 2:40-46A; Ezekiel 36:27-28; John 15:1-17; 2 John 9-12; Acts 11:22-26); and
Being a faithful witness unto the Lord as He enables (Acts 2:46B-47; Isaiah 44:6-8; Matthew 10:24-27; 1 Thessalonians 1:5-10; Acts 1:8).
Reaching up means I am engaging His presence in my life on a consistent basis.
Reaching in means I am helping my church and my church family become the best we can be.
Reaching out means I am shining my light in darkness and being a witness every day.
This year at CLC our goal is to REACH. We are not satisfied with where we are right now but we want to REACH for more of the Lord Jesus. So, firstly, we are going to REACH UP in our church services and in our own private devotion time each day. Secondly, we are going to REACH IN to help one another grow in the Lord and to help us become a better church. We want to model the Apostolic church found in the Word of the Lord just as closely as we can. Finally, we are going to REACH OUT to evangelize and witness to the world around us. We want to REACH our world with the gospel message found in the Bible. Join us this year at CLC as we REACH.
