Believing that Faith, Life, and Doctrine are ultimately inseparable, Calvary GreenWood is committed to the deity and preeminence of Jesus Christ, the eternal Word of God, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, elaborated in the historic creeds of the Church, and confessed in the lives of those redeemed by His love.

We believe in one God, a Spirit omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in God the Father, the uncreated Creator of all that is, who, in His triune nature, is distinct from but personally and morally active in His creation. All moral and spiritual authority ultimately proceeds from Him. His love is the source of our fellowship with Him and each other. The ultimate expression of His love for us is His gift of our Lord Jesus Christ, in whom grace unlimited and truth absolute dwell.

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, of one substance with the Father, who took our nature on Himself for our redemption: very God and very Man. The eternal Word became flesh, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and shed His blood as a vicarious sacrifice for our sins. He rose again in the body, ascended to the Father to make intercession for his people, and will return in power and great glory at the end of the age to establish His kingdom and judge the saved and the lost.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, the giver of life who has spoken by the Prophets and Apostles; who convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; and who regenerates, sanctifies, and empowers believers in Christ for service and witness. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ as Helper, Teacher, and guide, and ministers His gifts to the Church today in the manner recorded throughout the New Testament.

We believe in the Church, the Body of Christ universal, unconquerable, indivisible, transcending time, place, and culture. It is apostolic in its doctrine, it is catholic in its scope, it is charismatic in its power and authority, and it is evangelical in its mission. We recognize that denominational and cultural distinctives may be necessary for unity in the local church in a given time or place, but we are transdenominational in our desire to serve all members of the universal body of Christ.

We believe the Bible to be the only authoritative word of God, His unique verbal self-revelation. The message of the Bible is truth unchanging, and is infallible and without error in all that it teaches, asserts, and affirms.

We believe that all mankind, though created male and female by God in His image, are sinners by nature and by choice. The result of sin is that we are alienated from God and each other, experientially depraved, and under legal condemnation. We are incapable of being reconciled to God through our own efforts; but by His grace and through our faith, God forgave and has justified all who repent of their sin and consciously confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. By the indwelling of His Holy Spirit He regenerates us, and enables us to live godly lives.

While we hold these beliefs, we welcome any believer in the Lord Jesus to participate in the Fellowship of Christ in a way that honors Him and demonstrates his love.
