HISTORY OF CALVARY MONTEREY
Where we came from...
Calvary Monterey has existed, in various forms and facilities, for the fame of Christ on the Monterey Peninsula since 1979. Located at our current location since 1996, we look forward to many more decades of fruitful work for the gospel. Current lead pastor, Nate Holdridge, has served in this capacity since 2008.
STATEMENT OF FAITH ESSENTIALS
absolutely fundamental to our beliefs
We Believe in all the fundamental doctrines of orthodox evangelical Christianity.
We Believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We Believe in one God Who is eternally existent in three separate persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We Believe that God the Father is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.
We Believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the cross, was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.
We Believe that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
