Calvary Chapel has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I'm New Here 
Here's a glimpse of what you can expect when you visit.

We have plenty of parking available in our lot. You are also welcome to park in the Park n' Ride adjacent to our building right on the corner of Cedar and Grove.

Sunday mornings
As you walk up to our building, you will be greeted by friendly greeters who will welcome you with a smile and hand you a weekly bulletin. There is always free coffee and tea available off to your right upon entering the main lobby, or you can purchase a coffee drink from "The Way Cup". All proceeds go toward supporting our missionaries.

If you have kids
We have five wonderful age appropriate classes for infants through 5th grade, Here is a list of our current classes. 1) Nursery age is newborn - 24 months. 2) Toddlers age is 2-3 years. 3) 4 year olds - kindergarten class. 4) 1st grade - 3rd grade class. 5) 4th grade - 5th grade class.  All of our children's teachers and helpers over the age of 18 have filled out and passed a thorough background check to ensure the safety of all our kids.

Checking in your children
We use which is an online system that is very simple and easy to use. If you are new or visiting, we have two check-in stations (one next to "The Way Cup" and one at the top of the stairs) where you can fill out your child's info (age, gender, allergies, special requests). You can also check them in before you come by clicking here;  register my child for the first time. After you register your children, follow the big, wooden signs to the correct class. Our teachers and helpers are very friendly and welcoming and will help to make your child feel comfortable in a new environment. (Class sizes are usually 5 - 15 students per class)

Main Service
We begin right at 10am, so make sure you get here with enough time to check your kids in, grab a coffee and a good seat,

We start with praise & worship
Our worship leaders will lead us in prayer and singing songs that will praise and worship Jesus. Worship is very important because it prepares our hearts to hear from God's Word. You are welcome to sit, stand or raise your hands during worship. After about 20-25 minutes of praise and worship, we like to take a few moments to greet some people around us. You'll probably receive a friendly handshake or possibly a hug; but don't worry, we won't be too overbearing. Once people begin to sit down, one of our leaders will come up front to welcome the congregation and make a couple announcements.

Bible Study
The main part of our service is our 45-50 minute Bible study, Joel Belcher will teach a passage of the Bible in a way that is easy to understand. He will make points throughout the message that are relevant and applicable to our lives. He is always very intentional to teach the Bible verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book, so where he leaves off one Sunday, he picks up again the next. Currently we are in the book of Romans on Sunday mornings.
The service usually concludes around 11:15-11:30 with prayer and sometimes a final song. After the message, there will be a prayer team of men and women up front who would love to pray with you for specific needs. This concludes the main part of the service.

Don't run out just yet!
After picking up your children, hang out for a while in the lobby where there's usually hot soup and homemade bread waiting for you. Grab a bite to eat and strike up a conversation with someone. Our church is very friendly and welcoming and we love meeting new people, so we hope you feel welcome and accepted. At Calvary Chapel Marysville, you can always expect to find genuine love and acceptance, spirit led Bible studies and sincere praise and worship. We look forward to meeting you!

Wednesdays are a bit more casual
Worship starts at 7. Children are welcome to worship with us, but the nursery is open for young children if needed. Our bible study usually starts around 7:30 and concludes about 8:15. We are currently studying the book of Genesis.

Our Purpose

Our purpose at Calvary Chapel Marysville is to glorify God by pointing people to Jesus Christ, Who alone is sufficient for our every need. Our greatest desire is to help people know Christ and fully receive His love. In response to His love, we as a church have three goals:
Our first goal is to love God with all of our hearts, minds and lives. For this reason, in our gatherings, we have three priorities: 1) Teaching God’s Word so that we might truly know how He wants us to love Him; 2) Worshiping God by singing praises to Him; and 3) Seeking God in prayer.
Our second goal is to love each other as members together in God’s family. There are many opportunities for fellowship, friendship and service in our church body. We desire that every person who attends Calvary Chapel Marysville have a sense of love and belonging.
Finally, our third goal is to love our world. We pursue this goal in two ways: 1) As individuals, live and share the Gospel in our homes and communities; and 2) Together, share the Good News of Jesus Christ with all the earth.

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. We believe the Bible is the final authority in every area it addresses for every individual Christian, as well as for the church collectively. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, John 10:35)

We believe there is one God who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that all things were created by Him and for Him. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 45:21-22, Matthew 28:19, Colossians 1:16)

We believe that God the Son became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ. That He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life (for He was without sin), died a substitutionary death for all mankind, was raised from the dead the third day, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God until His enemies are made His footstool. (John 1:1, 14, Matthew 1:18-25, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Hebrews 10:12-13)

We believe the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe the Holy Spirit regenerates and indwells and seals every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that He empowers us to live as witnesses for Christ. We believe that all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to His church today. (John 14:16-17, John 16:7-11, Titus 3:5-6, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 1:8, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, 1 Peter 4:10-11)

We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. He created them sinless, equal in value, dignity, and worth. According to His purpose and design, men and women are created to fulfill distinct but complementary roles in the contexts of marriage, family, and the local church. (Genesis 1:26-28, Ephesians 5:22-6:4, 1 Timothy 3:1-7)

We believe that, as a result of the Fall, all people are sinners by nature and in need of a Savior, and that Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of the world. That salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Him. We believe that all who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved eternally. (Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:18-19, Matthew 1:21, 1 John 4:14, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9)

We believe there is one church, the body of Christ, consisting of men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. We believe that each local congregation is an expression of that universal church. (Ephesians 4:4, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Revelation 5:9, Acts 2:42-47)

We believe the church will be delivered from the “hour of trial” which will come upon all who dwell on the earth, being “caught up” in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air (the Rapture). (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, 1 Corinthians 15:51-55, Revelation 3:10)

We believe the saints will return with Christ to the earth, at His Second Coming, to rule and reign with Him. (Jude 1:14, Revelation 19:11-16, Revelation 20:4)

We believe in the pre-millennial return of Christ, to sit upon the throne of David and rule over the house of Jacob (Israel), and the entire cosmos, forever. (Revelation 20:1-6, Luke 1:31-33, Isaiah 9:6-7)

We believe in the resurrection of the dead. Some will be raised to life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt (hell). We believe that God will create a new heaven and earth in which righteousness will dwell. We believe that the throne of God and the Lamb (Jesus Christ) will be established in the New Jerusalem forever. (Daniel 12:2, John 5:25-29, Revelation 21:1-22:5)


Our History

Our church began as a home fellowship in the summer of 1997 with just a handful of people who simply wanted to study the Bible and worship Jesus. Over the years, God has used Calvary Chapel Marysville to reach countless people in the area with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. Joel Belcher became the teaching Pastor on July 3, 2016. God's story is still being written...
