Olive Branch Calvary Chapel is a gathering of believers, founded on the lordship of Jesus Christ. That He is living and powerful and wholly capable of changing the lives and eternal destiny of those who deny themselves, take up their cross and follow Him. Our supreme desire is to know Jesus Christ and to be conformed unto His image.
We believe that the Scriptures are the inspired, infallible, inerrant, authoritative word of God. Therefore we place great emphasis on the teaching of God’s Word, the Holy Bible.
We believe in the pre-existence and full deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, who through the incarnation became man without ceasing to be God, fully man and fully divine, in one person.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three co-equal, co-eternal, co-substantial persons - The Trinity = Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation, because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature. That men are justified only by God’s grace, received by faith, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the present indwelling ministry of the Holy Spirit, enabling the Christian to live a godly life.
We believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are valid for today’s Church.
We believe in the rapture of the Church, where Jesus will descend from heaven with a shout, the trumpet of God will sound, and the dead in Christ will be taken up first, then we (His church) that are alive, will be “caught up” in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
We believe in the “Second Coming” of Jesus Christ, in which He will return with His bride (the Church) to destroy all those who oppose His right to rule as Messiah over the earth.
We believe in the Final Judgement by Jesus Christ, where those who have received Him as their personal Savior and Lord will inherit eternal life with God.
We believe that the only true basis of Christian unity is His (Agape)love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves to be Christians.
