VOICE OF CALVARY CHURCH DOCTRINE
The Scriptures and Salvation
A. We believe that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of God. (Mark 12:24; 13:11; Acts 1:16; Rom. 15:4; I Cor.2:13; Gal. 3:16; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 3:16).
B. We believe that all the Scriptures center about the Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 12:36; Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39; Acts 17:2-3; 18:28; 26:22-23; I Cor. 10:11; 2 Tim. 3:16).
C. We also believe that all Scriptures are to be interpreted literally (Matt. 22:41-46; Mark 12:18-27; Luke 4:16-21; Luke 24:44; John 10:6-10; John 15:1-5; Ga. 4:22-31).
D. That the Bible is the inspired, and infallible word of God.
E. That Salvation is by grace, through faith in Christ's finished work on the Cross of Calvary. (Eph 2:8)
We believe that the godhead eternally exists in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - and that these three are one God (Matt. 28:18-19; Mark 12:29; John 1:14; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Cor. 13:14; Heb. 1:1-3; Rev. 1:4-6)
Who Jesus Is
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal son of God came into this world that He might manifest God to men, fulfill prophecy, and become the Redeemer of a lost world. He was born of a virgin, and received a human body and a sinless nature. (Luke 1:30-35; John 1:18; 3:16; Heb. 4:15)
We believe that, Jesus loves the lost so much, He willingly accepted His Father?s will and became the divinely provided sacrificial Lamb and took away the sin of the world, and that by His death became the Savior of the lost world. (John 1:29; Rom. 3:25-26; 2 Cor. 5:14; Heb. 10:5-14; 1 Peter 3:18)
We believe that, according to the Scripture He arose from the dead. (John 20:20; Phi. 3:20)
The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the blessed Trinity, though omnipresent from all eternity, dwells in every believer (John 14:16-17; 16:7-15; 1 Cor. 6:19; Eph. 2:22; 2 Thess. 2:7)
We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accord with His Own will, for the sick and afflicted. (John 15:7; James 5:13-16; 1 John 5:14-15)
