Who We Are

Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

Calvary Outreach and Revival Center is a Pentecostal Apostolic church which beliefs are based solely on the Bible, which is the Word of God. We are Pentecostal by experience according to Acts 2:4, Apostolic because we accept the standard of Holy living established by God and heralded by the Apostles in the establishment of the church according to Acts 2:42; I Peter 1:16 OUR AFFILIATION We are affiliated with the Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ (C.O.O.L.J.C.), of the Apostolic Faith, Inc., Founded by the late and honorable Bishop R.C. Lawson, Governed by our Chief Apostle W.L. Bonner. Biblical Expressions of Worship We pray together aloud because in the Bible we read, “They lifted up their voice to God with one accord” (Acts 4:24). We lift our hands in praise because in the Bible we read, “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord” (Psalm 134:2). We sing with all our hearts because in the Bible we read, “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise” (Psalm 98:4).
We play musical instruments because in the Bible we read, “And all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments” (2 Samuel 6:5). We clap and shout unto God because in the Bible we read, “O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph” (Psalm 47:1). We dance before the LORD because in the Bible we read, “Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs” (Psalm 150:4). We testify publicly because in the Bible we read, “I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee” (Psalm 22:22). We anoint with oil for divine healing because in the Bible we read, “Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord” (James 5:14). We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts because in the Bible we read, “When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation” (1 Corinthians 14:26).
