Calvary Chapel of the Hills

What We Believe

Calvary Chapel of The Hills formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be conformed to 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 the 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 Christian's.

 

  • Worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.

 

  • Worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give a great place to music in our worship.

 

  • Worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, we designed our services with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that He might instruct us how we should worship Him.

 

  • The Bible is the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings.

 

  • Our Lord Jesus Christ is God, virgin born, lived a sinless life, died vicariously making atonement through His shed blood, and is personally returning in power and glory.

 

  • That God is eternally existent in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

  • That it is only through a relationship with Jesus that sinful man is able to reconcile with God. This reconciliation is only possible through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and His perfect work of death and resurrection on the third day.

 

  • That the resurrection is of both those who have called upon the name of The Lord and those that have not. Those covered by the blood of Jesus unto the resurrection of life and they that are not, unto the resurrection of damnation.

  • That The Holy Spirit ministers today, His indwelling convicts of sin, regenerates us in spirit, and marks us as Christians.

 

  • That in Him, The Lord Jesus Christ, unites believers spiritually.

 

  • That the spiritual gifts, as found in I Corinthians 12:4-11, continue today.

  • A dependence upon the Holy Spirit is necessary to lead and guide.

 

  • That the teaching of the Word of God should be in such a way that it is applicable to life and spiritual prosperity.
