History of Calvary Chapel Pastor Al James, feeling the calling of the Lord, was sent out from Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa to start a church in Prescott, AZ. Calvary Chapel of Prescott began as a home fellowship in Pastor Al's home. It soon grew in size and by 1981 the church met in the basement of the local Methodist church. After outgrowing the basement and another building, Calvary Prescott ended up in what had been affectionately coined "The Barn." The Barn consisted of a metal building that was converted into a sanctuary and it was there that the church began to grow into the hundreds. The church then acquired the facilities of Prescott Christian School, located on Highway 69, just outside Prescott's city limits. Obviously God knew that this would be the ideal spot from which to share the Gospel Message to the Tri-City area! The current campus looks very little like it did when the property was purchased in 1985... Paved parking lots, remodeled youth buildings, new Bible College facilities and new Sanctuary and Children's buildings are just a few of the changes... If you are in the tri-city area, we invite you to come to our campus and look around. Because of the explosive growth in the area, we have felt the leading of the Lord to expand our fellowship into Prescott Valley. We currently have Sunday morning services at our Prescott Valley campus. Statement of Faith 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, that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all. ...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 Jesus Christ. ...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 death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth. ...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 for the ministry all who believe in Christ, we believe 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. ...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 for the church today. ...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 will be saved. ...in the local Church comprised of living members of the universal church to which men and women are called to commitment and service to Jesus Christ. ...in the personal, visible Return of Jesus to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.
