Calvary Students Mission Statement
Fusing students with God, through real relationships, uniting together as the body of Christ to love radically and serve selflessly.
Our Core Values
The "We ARe" statements of Calvary Students
We are called to first love God and then love others. For these are the greatest of all commands, in doing so we live out a true act of worship. We will love radically as Christ loves us. We will seek God first in all we do, through prayer and devotion. We will treat each other with respect and kindness and remember that everyone’s journey is different. (Matthew 22:37-40; 1 Corinthians 16:14; Matthew 6:33, 1 Thessalonians 5:17,)
We are Real. We don’t act better than the other. We are all sinners and in need of a Savior. We will be accountable to each other out of LOVE and learn from each other. We are all invited into the body of Christ no matter our past or present. We will have authentic relationships with each other and create a safe space for each other. We will not judge or condemn each other but build each other up in Love. (John 6:37; Matthew 11:28-30, Romans 3:23, Galatians 6:2, Proverbs 27:17)
We are equipping students to understand and know God. To build a personal faith in Jesus Christ and to find confidence in sharing the message of Jesus with others. We will use the inerrant word of God as the basis for all we teach. (Romans 15:4, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Philippians 4:9)
We are here to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We are called to give and serve and to do so humbly and selflessly. We each have a gift that was given to use, and we will use it for the glory and praise of Jesus. We will do this with outreach and service to our church body. (Matthew 6:3-4, Matthew 20:27-28: Philippians 2:3-4, 1 Peter 4:10)
We are uniting together as the body of Christ, understanding that every person has a role in our ministry. No one is left behind or forgotten. We build each other up as brothers and sisters in Christ and we are one unit, one body, and of one mind. (Philippians 2:2; Ephesians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 12:12; 25-28)
We are on a Mission to grow the kingdom of God, by reaching the lost and help them come home. We are called to GO and Teach. We will do so with a loving, welcoming, and humble heart to mimic Christ’s compassion. (Matthew 28:19-20, Luke 15)
We are INFLUENCERS. Not just in our own ministry but in our world. As we live our lives outside of church, we lead others to Christ. We will live in a way to influence and impact how others think, believe, and see Christ in us daily. Be the Jesus others need to see. (James 2:14, 1 John 2:5-6, Philippians 4:9, 1 Timothy 4:12)

We Do NOT allow the use of Phones during any large group or small group times. We have provided a charging station for our students to leave their phones. PLEASE send your student with a paper Bible, if your student does not have one, no worries! We have some in the room for them to use. We want to teach your students how to use their Bible. We understand students have Bible's on their devices, however, they do have other apps on there too that can cause distraction. If this is an issue, please contact the Student Pastor, Liz Bell at Lizbell@calvaryvabeach.org.
