To equip people for the work of the ministry by preaching the Gospel, teaching obedience to God's commands in the Word, and doing both in the name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Calvary is a body of sons and daughters of God who are empowered to carry out their life’s ministry and are united in wholehearted, passionate service of God. Our focus is the Great Commission, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit, and united as Christ's Body, the Church.
Everything that takes place at Calvary is built upon these three things we hold as our foundational values. Freedom, Love, and Community. We walk out our salvation knowing the Holy Spirit brings freedom to us because when Christ died, we also died and rose with Him in that we died to our sin and now are enabled by grace to walk in total freedom in all areas of life.
All of our teaching, and equipping for our personal ministry is founded on the Word of God as absolute truth and by practically living it. Many things in the church are negotiable, but preaching truth directly from the Bible is not one of them. We place a high value on the authority of scripture for our lives.
The community at Calvary is vital. First, as a united body of believers, we stand under the vision God has given our Pastors. We work together to protect our leaders and the vision God has given them for Calvary. We hold dear all relationships that we make and esteem every one of them in a culture of honor. We view each member of Christ's body as an extension of himself. We sharpen and support one another by encouraging maturity in everybody's function in the church. Everything we do is founded upon relationship, our relationship with God first and our relationships with one another.
Our Foundational Values

John 14:15 - If you love me, obey my commandments.
1 Corinthians 12:12 - The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.
