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: 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 man, 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: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that 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 faith in Christ.

We believe marriage to be a sacred institution according to Genesis 2:23-24 and confirmed as such in Ephesians 5:31. All weddings, therefore, are considered religious ceremonies and sacred and any and all facilities occupied by Calvary Chapel Tustin are reserved for religious purposes only. Those wishing to marry at Calvary Chapel Tustin are required to have been in fellowship at Calvary Chapel Tustin for no less than one year and to have maintained a celibate relationship and separate living arrangement during that time. Each applicant must complete the mandatory Pre-Marital Counseling requirements with a Calvary Chapel Tustin pastor prior to their ceremony.
