What We Believe

In the 4th Century, St. Augustine of Hippo stated, "In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity." We aim to live by this same statement. CalChurch is a place to learn more about Jesus and explore faith, which attracts various beliefs. We hold on to the essentials and encourage our church to explore the rest. You can just read on to discover what we believe and who we genuinely strive to be.

Love God

We believe in One God that is eternal and that he revealed himself in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We respond to His immense love for humanity with love, devotion, and obedience to Him.

Love Jesus

Jesus is the heartbeat of all we do. He is the most extraordinary human to walk the Earth. We are called to tell His Story, and we believe it is the greatest story ever told.

We believe Jesus paid the debt to sin that we owed. He was resurrected on the third day and eternally lives to bridge the chasm between God and humanity. He still desires to have a relationship with every one of us today. We believe Jesus is God’s Son, and He is God. Savior to anyone who believes His message. We believe He is fully human and fully Divine as gloriously mysterious.
Love People

All people are God-made, which means they are God-valued.

We are filled with unlimited potential yet tragically flawed. Calvary (where Jesus Christ died on the cross) proves that people matter to God—they matter to us, too.
God's Love For Humanity

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and his purpose for our lives. But God, in His unfailing love for humanity, gave us salvation, the forgiveness of our sins, and reconciliation to God, by grace through faith in Jesus.

Inspiration of Scripture

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives

Diverse Community

We believe God died for all people. We see His Kingdom as a diverse people with many differences coming together for one God. We embrace the diversity of our church and desire to be a home for all.

Living Forever

We believe that each person will exist eternally. Whether we spend eternity with God or separated from him is determined by our response to the grace and salvation of Jesus.

Global Mission

We believe The Church has a local and global mission. We believe in meeting physical and spiritual needs in our efforts to reach people.

Our call is to support ministries around the world spreading the message of Jesus and faith-based, non-profits in our local community. We believe this is part of God’s commission to His Church
