Calvary Chapel Pompano Beach 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 posses and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
WE BELIEVE in what is termed “The Apostles’ Creed” as embodying all the fundamental doctrines of orthodox evangelical Christianity.
WE BELIEVE 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, unpholds all, and governs all. We believe in God, the Father, and 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.
WE BELIEVE in 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 personal visible return to earth.
WE BELIEVE that He is one and the same as God. He was fully human and fully God. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the World of Sin, righteousness, and judement and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower in 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 and Guide. We believe that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, either at the time of or subsequent to regeneration, which is separate work from the indwelling Spirit for salvation.
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all biblical gifts of the Spirit as reflected through the fruit of that same Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that all the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Work of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, and that they are the infallible rule of faith and practice.
WE BELIEVE all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as his/her personal Lord and Savior, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all of his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend of eternity with the Lord.
WE AWAIT the pre-tribulation rapture of the church, and we believe in the literal Second Coming of Christ with His saints to rule the earth, which will be personal and visible. This motivates us to holy living, heartfelt worship, committed service, diligent study of God’s Word, regular fellowship participation in adult baptism by immersion and Holy Communion
