The Book of Acts tells the story of a handful of men and women who, by the power of the Holy Spirit, did not leave their world the same way they found it. They "turned the world upside down!" (Acts 17:6) They were ordinary people whom God enabled to do extraordinary things. It was the beginning of a movement that continues to this very day, and the mission of that movement is simple. . . .

"And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the Word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe." -1 Thessalonians 2:13
We remain flexible and yielded to the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We look for His Love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him.
Our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.
We Believe in all the fundamental doctrines of orthodox evangelical Christianity.
We Believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We Believe in one God Who is eternally existent in three separate persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We Believe that God the Father is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.
We Believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was 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.
We Believe 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, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
Here's our full Statement of Faith. Take a look at the list below for some more detail on our approach to some specific and important items of how we at Calvary Mountain View express our Christian faith.
