Expect a whole bunch of imperfect people worshipping a perfect God. 

We believe that the Bible is the living word of God.
We spend time every weekend studying it together.

Since the beginning, Calvary Chapel has been teaching God's word verse by verse in context.

Expect to encounter the truth of God's word and community with His people.

Expect to open up the
Bible, to sing, to laugh,
to get serious.


you could say the early church was a church on the rise.

in Acts 2 we read that they "continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers... and the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved."

this is where we get our vision for the church: to RISE.


we're READING God's Word
regularly to know Him intimately.

we believe the Bible is God's Word to us and we devote time regularly to reading it - not just to gain knowledge, but to grow in relationship with Him.

we're ENGAGING our world with God's love.

we love because He first loved us - and we are dedicated to letting everyone know about the life-changing message of the Gospel. engage in a short term trip or come to one of our CityServe events here in Chattanooga. pray for the missionaries sent out from our church, and engage others in your own life with the love of Jesus. 


we're SURROUNDING ourselves
with godly community.

life is not meant to be lived alone. we were created for community!
we believe that when we surround ourselves with like-minded, godly believers, we are better positioned to grow into the people that God created us to be.

What we believe

Our vision is founded in and guided by Scripture.
Here at Calvary Chapel Chattanooga, we look to God’s Word, the Bible, to shape who we are and direct our church.


We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

The Bible

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.

God the father

We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through faith in Jesus Christ.

God the Son

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We Believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings; His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth. We Believe that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and empowers the believers for service, often subsequent to regeneration.

God the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ for ministry. We Believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit.


We believe that all people are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

The Church

We believe in the universal Church, in the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church: 1) Baptism, and 2) the Lord’s Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion, both of which are open to all believers in Jesus Christ. We Believe in what is termed the Apostles’ Creed as embodying the fundamental facts of Christian faith.

The future

We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishment of His kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.
