WE BELIEVE

…that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three distinct persons:  The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in nature, power, and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

 …that the Scriptures consisting of the Old and New Testaments are the word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and are the infallible rule of faith and practice.

 …in GOD THE FATHER, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

 …in JESUS CHRIST, God’s only begotten Son, fully God and fully human, conceived by the Holy Spirit; we believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, and perpetual intercession for His people.

 …in the HOLY SPIRIT, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, seal, and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, Comforter, and Guide.  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit.

 …that all people are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God imparts life by the Holy Spirit to those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; and we believe that God raised Him from the dead on the third day after His crucifixion.  Salvation is by grace through faith alone, not by works.

 …in the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.

 …that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church--baptism and the Lord’s Supper.  We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.

 …that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are still in operation today and should be exercised within the guidelines found in the Scriptures, decently and in order, for God is not the author of confusion, but of peace; that they these gifts are distributed by the sovereign will of the Holy Spirit to whom He chooses.

 …in the personal and visible bodily return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous, and endless suffering of the wicked in the Lake of Fire.

 …in what is termed The Apostles Creed as embodying fundamental facts of the Christian faith.

MISSION STATEMENT

Calvary Chapel Monrovia has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

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

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

- We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.

- Established as an outreach of Calvary Chapel La Mirada in 2005, Calvary Chapel Monrovia has committed itself over the years to serving the city of Monrovia and the surrounding foothill communities along the 210 Corridor.  The Lord has blessed this work over the years and we look forward to what He has in store for us for the future.
