<p>Calvary Stands For:</p> <p>Caring, Abiding, Love Another, Vital Importance of the Bible, Adore the Christ, Resurrection of the Dead, Your life can be changed.<br /><br /><br />Final Article: </p> <p>The third and final article of the Apostles' Creed explains how faith in Jesus is possible. The creed concludes: "I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting." <br /><br /><br />Philosophy:</p> <p>Calvary Bringing Faith, Hope & Strength to all Christ's People.<br /><br /><br />Goal: </p> <p>Our goal is to live this great commission in everything we do St. Paul says that Faith comes by hearing the message of Jesus Christ. We strive to share that message not only amongst ourselves, but also with those in our community who have not heard of God s gift of love for them. <br /><br /><br />The author of Hebrews reminds us that Hope is being certain of what we do not see and this is done by faith We endeavor to bring the hope of eternal salvation to all of Christ s people by reaching out in love to those who don t yet know him. <br /><br /><br />In the Old Testament we are told to be Strong and courageous for the Lord God is with us He will not fail or forsake us. The strength we have comes from the knowledge that we are children of God through Baptism. We are also made stronger to carry out our task by receiving the Lord s Supper.<br /><br /><br />Our Mission is to bring Faith, Hope and Strength to all Christ's people with the understanding that Christ is with us assisting and directing our efforts.</p> <p>We offer three church services: Sunday at 8:00 AM & 10:30 AM and Wednesday at 7:00 PM.
