About Us

Calvary Chapel Yorba Linda 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.

 

Statement of Faith

We Believe

The Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative word of God.

We Believe

That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We Believe

In the deity of Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory.

We Believe

That for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.

We Believe

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today.

We Believe

In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We Believe

It is important to uphold the scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living in faith in Christ.
