Statement of Faith

Calvary Chapel Dickinson 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 are a non-denominational Church. But we are not opposed to denominations — only their tendency to over emphasize the 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 may have. And without His love we have no right to claim ourselves as Christians.


Worship of God should be spiritual, therefore we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.

Worship of God should be inspirational, therefore we give great place to music in our worship.

Worship of God should be intelligent, therefore our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that He might instruct us how He would be worshiped.

Worship of God is fruitful, therefore we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him.
