Center City is a multi-ethnic fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  Our greatest desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.  We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations, as such.  We believe the true basis of Christian fellowship is God's love, which is greater than our differences.

SUNDAYS:

corporate Prayer 9:00 AM   

Please note: childcare is not provided for the prayer, but children are welcome to join their parents in the prayer time.

MAIN SERVICE AT 10:00 AM   

Sunday morning service is at 10:00 A.M. in the main sanctuary, and focuses primarily on the preaching of the Word. We are currently featuring an expositional study through the book of Ephesians.  Nursery Care and Sunday School are provided during our morning services for ages 0-11 yrs. old.  If you prefer to keep your child(ren) with you in the sanctuary, you are permitted to do so as well.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

WHAT'S AVAILABLE FOR MY CHILDREN? 

We know that as a parent you need to be sure that your children are in a safe, loving and learning environment. Here at Calvary Chapel we provide exactly that! Our belief is that in order to be an effective children's minister, you have to be a healthy Christian, in love with Jesus Christ, His word and His people.  Each Sunday school class has a teacher and at least one assistant to ensure that every child is cared for. 

We also allow children in the sanctuary for those that feel more comfortable to keep their children with them during service.  We just ask that if your child(ren) get fussy that you step out for a moment to calm them so not to be a distraction to the CONGERGATION.

HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR CHURCH? 

We are more concerned with you meeting with God and being built up in the faith than what you wear.  Although some people wear jackets and ties on Sunday mornings, most of the congregation dresses casually...slacks, Jeans, dress shirts, t-shirts, sandals, shoes, etc..

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN THE CHURCH SERVICE?

The service begins with a time of heart felt worship, followed by greeting, and a practical Biblical message that will help you deal with real life issues.  Most services close with a time of communion and announcements, followed by free refreshments, snacks and fellowship.

 

WE BELIEVE...

  • IN ONE PERSONAL, TRANSCENDENT, AND HOLY GOD, THE CREATOR OF ALL, WHO IS ETERNAL AND WHO MANIFESTS HIMSELF IN THREE SEPARATE PERSONS: FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT.

  • THAT JESUS CHRIST, THOUGH FULLY GOD BECAME A MAN FOR THE SUFFERING OF DEATH, THAT HE IS THE PROMISED MESSIAH, BORN OF A VIRGIN, LIVED A SINLESS LIFE, PROVIDED FOR THE ATONEMENT OF OUR SINS BY HIS VICARIOUS DEATH ON THE CROSS, WAS BODILY RESURRECTED BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, ASCENDED BACK TO THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER, AND EVER LIVES TO MAKE INTERCESSION FOR US. AFTER JESUS ASCENDED TO HEAVEN, HE POURED OUT HIS HOLY SPIRIT ON THE BELIEVERS IN JERUSALEM, ENABLING THEM TO FULFILL HIS COMMAND TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE ENTIRE WORLD, AN OBLIGATION SHARED BY ALL BELIEVERS TODAY.

  • THAT ALL PEOPLE ARE BY NATURE SEPARATED FROM GOD AND RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN SIN, BUT THAT SALVATION, REDEMPTION, AND FORGIVENESS ARE FREELY OFFERED TO ALL BY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. WHEN A PERSON REPENTS OF SIN AND ACCEPTS JESUS CHRIST AS PERSONAL SAVIOR AND LORD, TRUSTING HIM TO SAVE, THAT PERSON IS IMMEDIATELY BORN AGAIN AND SEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, ALL HIS/HER SINS ARE FORGIVEN, AND THAT PERSON BECOMES A CHILD OF GOD.

  • IN THE PERSON AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO INDWELLS, SEALS, AND EMPOWERS EVERY BELIEVER, BAPTIZING THEM INTO THE BODY OF CHRIST. WE FURTHER BELIEVE THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL COME UPON ANY BELIEVER WHO ASKS IN FAITH, ENABLING HIM/HER TO PREACH THE GOSPEL IN POWER. WE ALSO BELIEVE ALL OF THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT MENTIONED IN THE SCRIPTURES ARE VALID FOR TODAY IF THEY ARE EXERCISED WITHIN THE SCRIPTURAL GUIDELINES. WE BELIEVE THAT LOVE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ALL THE GIFTS, AND WITHOUT THIS LOVE ALL EXERCISE OF SPIRITUAL GIFTS IS WORTHLESS.

  • JESUS CHRIST IS THE HEAD OF THE BODY, HIS CHURCH, AND THAT CHURCH GOVERNMENT SHOULD HE SIMPLISTIC RATHER THAN A COMPLEX BUREAUCRACY. WE DESIRE TO BE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT IN ALL THE FUNCTIONS AND DIRECTIONS OF THE MINISTRY OF THE CHURCH.

  • IN A PERSONAL DEVIL CALLED SATAN WHO, ALONG WITH ALL HIS EVIL ANGELS, CALLED DEMONS, IS DESTINED TO SPEND ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE, AND WHO NOW SEEKS TO DECEIVE THE BELIEVERS AND DEFEAT THE WORK OF GOD, BUT WHO CAN BE RESISTED BY BELIEVERS WHO ARE IN-DWELT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, PROTECTED BY GOD, AND INTERCEDED FOR BY JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.

  • THAT THE NATION OF ISRAEL HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN GOD'S PLAN AND THAT ALL THE PROMISES OF GOD TO ISRAEL WILL BE FULFILLED.
