Calvary Church of Ft. Worth is a non-denominational, spirit filled church that exists to give you the best opportunity to become a developing follower of Jesus Christ by helping you to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make A Difference.
We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God: infinite in power, holy in nature; and possessing absolute, invisible deity. This eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin; that He lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave; and that He has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that through His death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living.
John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT:
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with His accompanying gifts, is the privilege of all believers.
Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5,2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26
We believe that all men have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again become Children of God.
Ephesians 2:8; Galatians 2:1, 3:8; Romans 10:10; Acts 1:31
Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ
to come and live inside them by His Holy Spirit.
They relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him thus making
Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior.
They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when
He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead.
John 12:12; John 14:1,23; John 1:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20
We believe the church has been called out of the world to be a group of people who follow Jesus Christ.
These Christ-followers, through the power of the Holy Spirit,
will affect genuine spiritual change in their communities.
As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to humanity. The church is one group of people made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and callings of the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23
THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters.
Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6-7; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10
Tommy and Dinora Brandon love people and are passionate about seeing everyone experience God to the fullest. They are devoted to leading people to a life of freedom and joy that only comes with knowing Jesus. They have served at Calvary Church for over 20 years and in 2015 they were installed as Senior Pastors. They have two beautiful girls, Selah and Esmé.
Pastor Tommy’s passion and desire to see people experience the life that God has for them is clearly visible through his interaction with people and his relational approach to pastoring. His use of wisdom and humor make him an outstanding communicator as he strives to connect us with Biblical principles and equip us in the application of those principles in an ever-changing culture.
Pastor Dinora uses her creative gifts and leadership abilities to oversee our worship ministry and women’s ministry. Her love for the presence of God is undeniable and the driving force behind everything she does. Together they are an incredible pastoral team who are making an impact in our community.
