About Calvary Chapel Tri-County...

Pastor Jerry Lenhard

Calvary Chapel Tri-County was birthed out of prayer and a call of the Lord. As an associate pastor at Calvary Chapel Arroyo Grande, California,
I felt a call to the Oregon area. Over time, through seeking and prayer, "that call" was narrowed to the rural farm belt of the Willamette Valley,
just north of Eugene. Eventually, the house sold. The family, all of our belongings, the dog and the cat all moved north. In January 1993, I
began a home bible study by placing an ad in the local Tri-County newspaper. The bible study grew, the people in the area had a desire to
both hear the Word of God taught expositionally and to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our home was
no longer large enough to accommodate all who came. Elders were chosen, and the home bible study became what is today
Calvary Chapel Tri-County.

I strongly believe that teaching people to love Jesus meets the greatest need of man. Please won't you just consider Jesus Christ and His love
for you?

Our Mission Statement...

Our mission at Calvary Chapel Tri-County is to teach the Word of God, plain and simple. We worship the Lord, spend time in His word, and
take time to fellowship with and encourage one another. It's not complicated. We invite you join us!

Please feel free to read up on What We Believe, and, if you like, how you can know God


What We Believe...

-We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, by which all things are given to us pertaining to life and Godliness (2 Timothy 3:16).
We therefore place a great priority on knowing God through the study and teaching of His Word.

-We believe in one God, our Father, the creator of all that exists both visible and invisible. We believe that God has revealed Himself to us
in three persons, the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit (1 Tim 3:16).

-We believe the gospel to be that: Jesus Christ, the second person of the Godhead, became flesh, was born of a virgin, and
lived as a man among men. We believe Jesus suffered and died for our sins, and was physically and literally resurrected
from the dead, and ascended back into Heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father (1 Cor 15:3-4).

-We believe that all men are helplessly lost, separated from God, and are sinners by nature. We believe that the only way to
reconciliation with God is personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and that all who repent and believe on the Lord
Jesus shall be saved. Salvation is therefore the free gift of eternal life, bought and paid for by the death and blood of Jesus on the
cross (John 5:24, Eph 2:8).

-We believe in the need for discipleship and training for the perfection of the saints for the work of the ministry (Eph 4:11-12).
Therefore we put an emphasis on obedience to God's Word in our daily lives (John 14:15).

-We believe in the fellowship of all true believers in Christ (1 John 1:3). We place a high priority on the gathering of the body of
together in order to stimulate one another to love and good deeds (Heb 10:24-25). We therefore place a priority on body ministry
and sensitivity to the work of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 12:4-7).

-We believe that the worship of God should be reverential, pleasing to Him, and that His church is to worship Him in Spirit and Truth
as an expression of our love (PS 95:65, John 4:24). Therefore we place a priority on music and singing as a form of worship. We look to
His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we are truly worshipping Him.

-Our Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs.  The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God
speaks with final authority concerning Truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, and is the final source of all
that we believe.
