MISSION & VALUES

Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

Calvary is a community of growing sons and daughters of God who are empowered to carry out their life’s ministry and are united in wholehearted, passionate service of God. We are wholeheartedly focused on the Great Commission. We are growing together, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and united as servants as Christ’s Body, the Church.

Our Values

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 with the understanding that it is the Holy Spirit that 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 our love for the Word of God.  Many things in the church are negotiable, but preaching truth directly from the Bible is not one of them. We believe the Bible is very applicable for the day and culture in which we live and 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 Pastors Keith & Stacie. 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

Freedom

2 Corinthians 3:17 – For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Love

John 14:15 – If you love me, obey my commandments.

Community

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.
