What we believe

Our mission is to love God, love others, and make Jesus known.



... believe and proclaim the Bible as the only authoritative and infallible Word of God.

... hold to the fundamental truths of historic Christianity including the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sacrificial death, bodily resurrection and second coming.

... believe that salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that it is both the obligation and privilege of every Christian believer to live a holy life, maintain good works and proclaim the gospel.​

Our Vision

Be the church that builds authentic relationships to reach the Grand Traverse area and beyond with the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ.

Core Values

Our core values are the DNA of East Bay Calvary Church. They define who we are and who we desire to become for the glory of God. They find their foundation in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) and the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40).

Exalt our Savior, Jesus Christ.


​Jesus declared… a time is coming and now has come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.
