Glorify God

Ultimately, we (Calvary  Chapel Twin Tiers) desire to bring glory to God through  trust (faith)  in God, through Jesus Christ’s sacrificial  death and resurrection. When we consider  what He went through  for us, taking the eternal  punishment  that we deserved, we cannot  help but desire to please  Him. Though  we can never repay Him, we can certainly  give Him our lives,  living for Him. (Romans 12:1-3)

Share Jesus with Others

We believe that God created  men and women in his image, but due to sin we are separated  from God and therefore,  are unable to have a relationship with Him.  Because  God is merciful,  He sent His only begotten son, Jesus, to live among us, to take the punishment and to die for our sins, and He then rose from the dead, so that we can have victory over death, and enabling  a relationship with God once again. This same victory  is available to anyone  willing to accept what Jesus did for them by trusting  him, and accepting this wonderful  gift of eternal  life.  It is our mission  to share the hope of eternal  life with others in our community.

Lead Others in Living for Jesus

We certainly  rejoice when someone  receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior  but we know this is not the end of the journey- it’s  the beginning.   Jesus, in Matthew· 28, encourages us to “Go  make disciples”, and to teach them what it means to live the Christian  life.  We want folks to know that they can depend on the Word of God, and trust that Jesus will enable them to grow strong  in their relationship with the Lord so that the trials of this life will not hinder them or defeat them.  The Word of God (the Bible)  is “given by inspiration  of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,  for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy  3:16).   We believe that Jesus came to give us “life abundantly” (John 10:10) and in order for us to realize  this, we need to walk closely to Him, living daily, in and through  His Word.

Encourage Biblical Application

Living daily, in and through  His Word, means that we must know His Word but also that we must do something with that knowledge. (James  1:22).   Today there are many in the Church  who are “pew  sitters”.   Many are well taught but never apply the Word of God to their lives.  The “Church”, in general,  has become lethargic.   They continue  to eat, but lack a servant’s heart. (Rev 3:14-22)   Therefore, it is our desire to encourage and exhort the church to apply the Word of God to our lives: to live for Jesus; to allow him to change  us into His image: to become servants  to Him and to each other; and ultimately  to glorify God by our lives.
