The following are the core beliefs of Calvary Chapel of Columbia based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
Is the only true and living God, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this Triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
Is the foundation and cornerstone of the church. He came to restore man's broken relationship with God. His finished work on the cross made that possible. Because of His love demonstrated on the cross by dying for our sins, we now have reason to fellowship with one another and proclaim salvation through His life, death, and resurrection.
Is inspired, infallible word of God and is relevant and applicable to man today. Therefore we place great emphasis upon teaching it in public, studying it in private, and using it as a guide for our daily lives.
We believe God is worthy of all praise, reverence, and love. We take special time to worship Him in the church with song. It is our goal to worship Him with our whole lives as well; at home, at work, and at play.
Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be conformed into His image, likeness, and example by the power of the Holy Spirit. We encourage this by abiding in Jesus Christ through His Word, prayer, and fellowship, and by yielding our lives to the Holy Spirit.
Is the greatest virtue and demonstration of the reality of Jesus Christ. We endeavor to show a Christ-like love toward all men. Love should be exhibited in our lives by our words as well as our actions.
Is a part of the Christian life and is the responsibility of all believers. Our goal is to develop the ministry of every member to the benefit of all.
