Our Vision Statement
Pursue Revival, Build Unity, Release Purpose, Leave Legacy
We commit to being a church that is passionate about PURSUING REVIVAL. Over the past year, Pastor Raley declared that “Our revenge will be revival”. Every time we gather, it is our resolve to passionately pursue the presence of God in a Spirit- filled, Spirit-driven and Spirit-charged atmosphere. The purpose of our weekly services, revival nights, and our other corporate gatherings is to provide a life giving church experience where Jesus is exalted and worshipped, the gospel is presented, and people are given an opportunity to encounter God in a real and powerful way. Our pursuit of revival emanates into the entirety of our church and in each location. From our children’s ministries to our youth ministries, from our small groups to outreaches, and so much more the effects of this pursuit can be seen and felt.
The scriptures are clear that it is “good and pleasant for the brethren to dwell in unity”, and that where there is unity, “…God commands his blessing” (Psalm 133). At Calvary, we are a church determined to BUILD UNITY, and be united. We desire to be a place where every person can connect with God and connect with each other despite our differences. We know that our creator perfectly created us all, and that our diversity is discovered in our differences not our sameness. As a unified and diverse church we are also called to be a lighthouse of unity to our communities, cities , and regions. Whether in our small groups, outreaches, services, or church/community event we are committed to being a beacon of hope and an oasis of unity in the region we serve.
At Calvary we understand that every person was created on purpose, with a purpose, and for a PURPOSE. We acknowledge that a part of our assignment, call, and mission is to help every willing person who calls Calvary home discover, unlock, and release their personal purpose. At Calvary, we know that by releasing you into your God-given personal purpose it ultimately aids us in fulfilling our God-given corporate purpose.
It’s our heart, no matter your age, to do this from your first day at Calvary. Because we are committed to RELEASING PURPOSE we have created many avenues to help you discover and release your purpose. Whether hearing the word of God in our services, assimilation (Growth Track), discipleship (Small Groups and Classes), mentorship, our streams of education (CCA & SEU), and serving opportunities Calvary is intent on seeing all attendees fulfilling the purpose of God on their lives.
Legacy is lived before it’s left, and at Calvary we believe in the next generation. We are focused on building a church that experiences a move God until Christ returns. We are insistent on maximizing the time we have been given and leaving those who are “next” with a solid foundation and a great example to follow. Our focus on LEAVING LEGACY can be seen in out commitment to education. We continue to improve our school, Calvary Christian Academy (Pre-school- 12th Grade), and we are constantly expanding our college, Southeastern University at Calvary Christian Center.
Our dedication to legacy fuels our vision to develop our property with the building of state of the arts kids ministry facilities, beautiful upgrades to current buildings, and expanding our reach through missions giving and the planting of new Calvary Campuses in our region.
Our devotion to leaving a legacy can also be seen and felt through our generosity. At Calvary, we give generously because we know our giving extends our reach. Our faithfulness in our generosity empowers us to show our communities the love of God. Whether through meeting felt needs through outreaches like the Daytona Dream Center, ministering to our local homeless community, or by being an active participant of generational transformation in helping children through being an avid advocate for adoption or the special needs community Calvary is committed to being “there” for the family and for the sake of legacy.
