What We Believe

We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune GOD created all, upholds all, We believe in the person

We believe that the Word of God supersedes any earthly law that is contrary to the Holy Scriptures. This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible, itself, as the inspired, infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all we believe. For purposes of Calvary Chapel Tallahassee’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, the Senior Pastor as President of the Board is Calvary Chapel Tallahassee’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application. (Acts 5: 27-29; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12) 

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice. The Word of God is the foundation upon which this church operates and is the basis for which this church is governed. (Isaiah 28:13; Nehemiah 8:8; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:21) 

and governs all things. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Hebrews 9:14) of

GODWe believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper,

We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, Who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, unrighteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. (Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 16:8-11; Romans 15:13, 16; Hebrews 9:14) 

We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, 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, perpetual intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to earth. (Isaiah 7:14; Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:23; Mark 16:19; Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1-2; John 8:58; John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 1:2; Revelation 1:8) 

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 those who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalms 90:2; Psalms 102:27; John 4:24; 1 Timothy 1:17; Titus 1:3) teacher

andWe believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the church: 1) full immersion water baptism and 2) the Lord’s Supper. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26) 

We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all who are born again are members. ( 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 4:15-16) 

We believe that all people are sinners by nature and therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates based upon faith by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. (Acts 8:15-17; Titus 3:5) 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit. (1 Corinthians 14)

and that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Genesis 1:27, 2:21-24; Psalm 139:14) 

female, We believe that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union.   (Genesis 2: 24; Exodus 20:14; Leviticus 18:6-22; Mark 10:5-9) 

We believe in the laying on of hands for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons, and for the receiving of the perpetuity of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 6:6, 8:17; 1 Timothy 4:14)  We believe that God raises up those called to be pastors and that the office of pastor is reserved for men ( Hebrews 5:4;1 Timothy 2:12) 

We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ which is His personal, visible return to earth and the establishment of His millennial kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked. (Matthew 16:27; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:11-15) 

We believe in what is termed the “Apostles’ Creed” as embodying the fundamental facts of the Christian faith. 

We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell and that all those who place their faith, hope and trust in Jesus Christ will spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord, while those who reject Jesus Christ’s free gift of salvation will spend eternity separated from the lord in Hell. (Matthew 5:3; 25:31-34; Hebrews 12:23; 1 Peter 1:4; Psalm 9:17; Matthew 5:22, 18:9; Luke 12:5) 


We believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church where all believers will meet the Lord in the air and be taken out of this world prior to the Tribulation that will come upon the earth. (Matthew 24:29-31; Luke 21:36; Romans 1:18, 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9; 2 Peter 2:7-9; Revelation 5:7-10, 7:13-14)
