statement of faith

What we believe

Calvary Chapel of Kern River Valley is a body of believers desiring to know the Lord Jesus Christ, and to make Him known in an ever-increasing measure.

We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only the over-emphasis of doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.

Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. John 4:24

We believe that the only true basis for Christian fellowship is His agape love, which is greater than any difference we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians. 1 Corinthians 13

We believe that the marks of a maturing church are faith, hope and love. Colossians. 1:3-7

Therefore, we place a high emphasis on the teaching of God's Word that our faith may grow. Romans 10:17

Also, we live in anticipation of the return of Jesus, for He is our Blessed Hope. Titus 2:13

Finally, we desire the fullness of His Spirit in our lives, for the fruit of the Spirit is love. By our love shall all men know we are His disciples. Galatians 5:22

May God bless you as we worship and learn of Him together
