"I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
Jesus Christ being the Lord and Foundation of Calvary Chapel The Way,
there are four components of our church's character that comprise each
point of our Church Vision.
FIRST POINT - CARING!
WE CARE. We are a church that is composed of people who are genuinely
concerned about people. Ministry is not about programs. Ministry is
about people: people who are drinking at the wells of living water, and
sharing that living water with others. Therefore, we at Calvary Chapel
The Way believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His
(Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess.
Therefore, it is our desire to reach the peoples of the world, so all
people are welcome to attend our fellowship, without regard to race or
color or creed or social status.
SECOND POINT - COMMUNITY!
WE are COMMITTED. We are a church that is composed of people who are being formed
together as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Therefore, we at Calvary Chapel The Way encourage people to use their
gifts and talents to minister to each others' special needs. Therefore,
great emphasis is placed on equipping believers to do the work of the
ministry. As we are equipped, we might better serve and be a witness to
one another, and the world around us.
THIRD POINT - COMMITMENT!
WE are COMMITTED. We are a church that is comprised of people who are not bound by an
organized membership, but do share in a fellowship commitment that is
part of the greater body of Christ. Therefore, we at Calvary Chapel The
Way encourage commitment to our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church by our
personal support of the church's leadership, by prayer and
encouragement, by our financial support through tithes and offerings,
and by our physical support through attendance and participation.
FOURTH POINT - COMMUNION!
WE celebrate COMMUNION. We are a church that is composed of people who are growing in the
knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and being conformed into
His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. Our desire is to know Him
and make Him known. We at Calvary Chapel The Way believe that our
worship of God should be spiritual; therefore we remain flexible and
yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship. We
also believe that our worship of God should be intelligent, so we design
our service with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that He
might instruct us how He would be worshipped. We also believe that our
worship of God should be inspirational, so we give great place to music
in our worship. We also believe the worship of God is fruitful, so we
look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we are
truly worshipping Him.
