When the Lord led Pastor Jason to start this church He showed him Isaiah 61:11 "The Garden"
For as the earth brings forth its bud, As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, So the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
The Lord called Pastor Jason to move to Idaho and start a new church (Living Faith Calvary Chapel) and a new chapter in the continuation of the book of acts. For the next chapter here in Buffalo the Lord showed Pastor Rob Isaiah 58:12. To be a repairer of the breach. This was a call on Pastor Rob to continue to water the church here in Buffalo NY, to water "The Garden". The Lord will use His church through the power of the Holy Spirit to repair and restore our relationship to Him in these last days. To be all in for Jesus Christ- Maranatha!
We're just a normal group of families, individuals, and students getting together to seek the Lord. Nothing pretentious or over-the-top. Some dress in their Sunday best, some dress casually. On Sunday mornings we're currently working our way verse-by-verse through the New Testament.
We have an awesome Christ-centered children's church program (recommended but not required) for children ages 3 to 9 years old. Children 10 and older are encouraged to join us for the morning's message until the church grows large enough to have a youth ministry program for youth ages 10 & up.
Our Sunday service usually lasts about an hour and a half.
Start Service and Announcements:
We begin with going over the weeks announcements
We worship (contemporary), lasting 20-25 min.
After Worship we dismiss the kids.
From there we move into the morning's message, lasting about 40 min to an hour.
We end with a time of worship (contemporary), lasting 5 min.
After the service, we enjoy a time of coffee, snacks, & fellowship.
We are a Calvary Chapel church.
We believe in salvation in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith in the sinless life, atoning substitutionary death, and literal bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ alone. We desire to glorify God by equipping fellow believers with in-depth, theologically conservative verse-by-verse expositional Bible teaching. Classic historical Christianity - nothing added, and nothing taken away: the Bible alone is both our blueprint and road map.
For those versed in theological jargon: we exposit the Scriptures exegetically, verse-by-verse, holding to the verbal-plenary inspiration of the original manuscripts, employing a literal grammatical historical hermeneutic.
