Here at Calvary Chapel we take the Bible literally; simply teaching The Word simply. Each message is taken directly from the Bible and taught scripture by scripture, verse by verse so that all can understand what God is saying to us, and apply it to a normal, everyday life. “Rejoice always” may seem unobtainable, but according to God’s Word, that is His Will, this is exactly what He wants us to strive for in this life. God’s Word is powerful and alive. So, regardless of our own trials and celebrations, He is speaking directly to each one of us according to our need at that moment in time.
Jesus Christ invites everyone to follow Him, reminding us that He is our shepherd and will never leave us or abandon us. As the apostle Peter stepped out from the security of the boat, Jesus stretched out His loving hand and saved him from sinking – just as He rescues us every day when we lose our focus.
Calvary Chapel encourages a full time, personal relationship with Jesus Christ that produces a positive change in lifestyle experiences. We also promote fellowship with our brothers and sisters for accountability that builds us up to spread the Gospel and bring others to Jesus Christ. God sent His Son to be the Savior of the World, and it is our responsibility to be witnesses, spreading the Agape love of Jesus Christ to everyone. It is God’s Will that none be lost and all come to repentance. We must turn away from sin, so we may obtain a positive change in lifestyle.
Calvary Chapel Brentwood is a part of the Calvary Chapel Association of Churches. The CCA assists the churches with leadership and oversight. Calvary Chapel churches are found throughout the continental United States and around the World.

Our Vision & Values
Who We Are
Calvary Chapel is a Christian fellowship where we gather for the purpose of knowing and glorifying Jesus Christ. We desire to see all people become committed to live as followers of Jesus Christ. As the church is growing our vision also is growing. Consequently, we are a fellowship in the process of constant development by God.
Acts 2:42 says the early church, “continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers.”
Our emphasis is expositional teaching of God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation, fostering a community of believers in Jesus Christ, sharing the Lord’s Supper and prayers offered to God. Training and equipping the saints to be the work of ministry here on earth.
SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE – In everything we and others do we will do our best and expect others to do the same.
SPIRIT OF HUMILITY – We must work from the right heart, working to always hold others up.
SPIRIT OF TRUTH – We hold Gods Word as our standard, we will never function outside of scripture to achieve our goals.
SPIRIT OF UNITY – We should always consider others and strive for togetherness.
SPIRIT OF DEDICATION – We will be people of our word and committed to follow through with our promises.
SPIRIT OF JOY – We want others to know we love what we do by the way we act.
Our vision is to know God personally and make Him known to others. We desire you to come as you are, but to posess an openness to leave more as He is.
We desire to reach out to hurting people with God’s healing love, acceptance and forgiveness so that they experience restoration through Christ. We believe our mission is the same as Jesus announced for Himself; to preach to the poor, bind up the broken-hearted, set free those held captive, and to proclaim liberty to those who are oppressed.
While people are being restored, we desire to train and equip them for ministry to others as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Finally, we desire to be a community of believers who make up a united fellowship, where people are loving one another, sharing life and resources together as members of the Body of Christ.
We believe the pattern for our church is given in Acts 2:42-47, including devotion to the Apostles’ teaching, fellowship, prayer, ministry to those in need, sharing meals together with gladness of heart, worship, and that God will add to the church those that believe.
Our desire is to go out beyond the “Christian camp” into the world to expand the kingdom of God through evangelism. We believe God has given every Christian a “sphere of influence” in which to make an impact for Christ.
