STATEMENT OF FAITH

We Believe

the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God



WE BELIEVE

that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


WE BELIEVE

in the deity of Jesus Christ; in His Virgin Birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory.

we believe

that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.  


WE BELIEVE

in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today.


we believe

in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.


WE BELIEVE

it is important to uphold the Scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of Communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Christ.

OUR HISTORY

Pastor Chuck Smith began pastoring a small congregation of 25 adults in Costa Mesa, California called "Calvary Chapel" in 1965. After reaching out to the “Hippies”, Pastor Chuck witnessed a work of the Holy Spirit commonly referred to as “The Jesus Movement”. The church soon grew numerically into the thousands, but more importantly, the spiritual growth of the people grew as well. Pastor Chuck attributes this spiritual growth to the consistent teaching of the Word of God from cover to cover, and making Acts 2:42 the ministry focus of the church; just as biblical churches have done for 2,000 years. Today, there are over 1,200 Calvary Chapels worldwide. The success of this non-denominational movement has no other explanation for it except the grace of God.


Pastor Chuck went home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus on October 3, 2013. But, the work the Lord birthed in that first Calvary Chapel continues through many churches.


In 2008, Pastor Pat Verfuth obeyed the leading of our Lord to leave the staff of Calvary Chapel Modesto to start a Calvary Chapel in Manteca. He was sent out with the blessing of the leadership of Calvary Chapel Modesto.


In 2018, under the leading of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Timothy Glass was appointed as the Senior Pastor.
