Our Vision: We desire to equip disciples of Jesus so that they might be used in an even greater way to influence our city for Christ (Matthew 28:18-20, Ephesians 4:11-16).
Calvary Chapel of Crook County is committed to knowing Jesus and making Him known to a lost world. We are a welcoming church and our doors are open to everyone. That being said we do not condone sinful activity but we do desire to reach everyone with the unconditional love of Jesus.
We believe that our primary focus should be upon loving God and loving people (Matthew 22:35-40).
Jesus longs to have a deep and meaningful relationship with each one of us, therefore our services focus upon knowing Him through passionate worship and relatable Bible teaching.
We place a great deal of emphasis upon Bible teaching…going through books of the Bible in an expositional manner seeking to see Jesus in every passage of Scripture (Luke 24:27ff). We believe the ultimate goal of the Church is to equip believers to be engaged in their mission, the very mission of God. God has raised up leaders in the Church not to do everything but to disciple mature followers of Jesus to go out into our community as missionaries on God’s mission (Ephesians 4:11-17)
We enjoy worshiping Jesus corporately. Our worship style is modern and passionate. We believe the worship of God is both spiritual and intellectual (John 4:24). Therefore our worship music incorporates both of these elements.
We believe that every Christian is a missionary called by God to represent Him to our community. Jesus has commissioned His Church to be engaged in His work of making disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). Therefore we place a heavy emphasis upon reaching our local community with the gospel of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Jesus said, “As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” In light of that we are sending church desiring to raise up everyday people to go and be His witnesses in the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8).
We desire to keep it simple. The early believers in the book of Acts committed themselves to four disciplines… “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42).
We believe the Church is who we are not somewhere we go. In other words the Church is the people not a building. Paul uses the metaphor of a body (1 Corinthians 12-14). And like a physical body that needs every part to function properly so too the Church needs every member to be engaged in service so that the church can function properly. Therefore we desire for each Christian in the fellowship to use their gifts for the building up of the whole “body” (1 Peter 4:10).
It is our perspective that Jesus is the best thing about us. Therefore we seek to make Him our focus and preeminent in all that we do.
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” (Colossians 2:9-10)
