Calvary Chapel Mission ViejoWhat We Believe
Here at Calvary Chapel Mission Viejo we value all age groups and want to adequately minister to each one in order to provide a Christ-centered community and ample growth in the Lord Jesus Christ.
A Christ Centered Community
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the final authority for Christian faith and living.
THREE IN ONE
God exists eternally in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, righteous in all His ways, and Creator of all things.
Jesus Christ is God’s eternal Son. As true God and true man, He allowed Himself to be born of a virgin, taught men how to live through His sinless life, was crucified as a sacrifice for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, was seen by over 500 persons, and returned to heaven to prepare a place for us.
CREATED IN HIS IMAGE
Men and women were created in God’s image, tempted by Satan, and rebelled against God. Through repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit, and we become children of God.
The church exists to celebrate the living God, cultivate personal growth in Christ, care about one another in Christ, and communicate Christ to the world.
THE LIVING BODY
The church is the living Body of Christ on earth; He is its head and source of its life. The Body is composed of those who have received Him personally.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit persuades us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus as Lord. He lives in us, teaches us, gifts us, and enables us to live Godly lives.
HE WILL RETURN
Jesus will return to the earth to raise the dead, judge the world, and establish His glorious kingdom. This is the hope of the Church and its encouragement for ministry. Those who have been reborn will live with Him forever.
