Calvary Chapel of South Los Angeles has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ, and to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s love (Agape), which is greater than any difference we posses, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshiping Him.
We believe in the inerrancy of scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, in the original autographs, is the inspired, infallible Work of God, a complete and final written revelation of God.
We believe in one personal, transcendent, and Holy God, the creator of all. Who is eternal, and who manifests Himself in three separate persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ, though fully God; became a man for the suffering of death; that He is the promised Messiah; born of a virgin; lived a sinless life; provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the cross; was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit; ascended back to the right hand of God the Father and forever lives to make intercession for us.
We believe in the person and work of the Holy Spirit who indwells, seals, empowers every believer, and baptizing them into the body of Christ.
We believe that 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 his or her sin and accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his or her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God.
We believe Jesus Christ is the head of the Body and that the church belongs completely to Him.
