What We Believe

"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." - Jesus of Nazereth

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Calvary Chapel Lowcountry based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


We believe in one God, the triune Godhead, who is eternal and manifests Himself in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1-2, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-5)

The Bible

We believe the Holy Scriptures known as the Bible are the sixty-six books contained in the Old and New Testament. The Bible is inspired by God and is without error in the original writings. The Bible is the complete and final revelation from God and is the authority for our practical instruction in faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:16-19)

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah spoken of in the Old Testament. He exists eternally and is God the Son. He became flesh (John 1), was born of a virgin conceived by the Holy Spirit, lived a sinless life (John 8:46), and was crucified for the sins of the whole world (1 Corinthians 15:3). After death, he was buried, and literally arose from the grave three days later (1 Corinthians 15:4). His death on the cross completed the final sacrifice necessary in order to fully restore sinful mankind to a relationship with God. (Genesis 3:15, Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 53, John 1:36-41, Hebrews 10:5-10)

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit, who is the third person of the Trinity, indwells, seals, and empowers believers at the time of their salvation. The Holy Spirit convicts men of sin, but also enables us to live an obedient life to God and His Word. The Holy Spirit gives us a new birth and seals our irreversible salvation. (John 3:1-6; Act 1:4-8; Romans 8:1-27; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 12; Ephesians 1:13)

The Nature of Man

We believe that all mankind was created by God in His own image and is not the product of evolution. Man fell out of fellowship with God starting with Adam’s original sin and inherited a perpetual sinful nature, which eternally separates the human race from God. (Genesis 1, 2; Mark 10:18, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 4:3-8)


We believe that salvation is your guarantee to enter into the kingdom of God; the saving of man from his sin, death, and hell, and that it is the free gift of God’s grace, based on
       grace alone through faith alone in the belief in Jesus Christ alone. We believe that salvation is irrevocable once truly received and that it is not received, based on any works, ritual or ceremony, or merit, but only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (John 1, 3:16, 6:38-40, 10:28-30, 14:6, 8:58; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Ephesians 1:13-14, 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)

The Church

We believe that local churches gather together for practical instruction in the scriptures, for fellowship with God and with other believers, and for corporate witness to the unsaved world. Our common spiritual goal is to grow toward Christ’s likeness. (Matthew 28:18- 20; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:5; Ephesians 4:13-16)

Future Things

We believe Jesus Christ will return for His church (1 Thessalonians 4:16) before the tribulation, to reward them according to their works. He will return with His saints and all His holy angels to the earth at the end of the tribulation, and set up His kingdom on earth, ruling and reigning forever and ever.
