What We Believe

The Scriptures

God has inspired all of the Bible writings (Old Testament and New Testament) they are holy, without fault, incapable of failing and God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13). It is because of this truth we believe the Bible should be rightly preached and taught in an expository style. We teach verse by verse and chapter by chapter to enable the whole counsel of God to be taught. Calvary Chapel Perth encourages every beliver to be a bereans (Acts 17:11) search and check the Scriptures against what is being taught.

We teach that Church does not replace Israel and that God is not done with Israel. Our doctrine supports the unilateral and everlasting covenants between God & Israel and God cannot lie and will fulfill his promise.

Jesus christ

Stepped down onto this earth and took on human flesh, both fully man and fully God. Conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin woman, He came with the sole purpose of reconciling our broken relationship with God which we fractured by sin. He did this by redeeming us through His death upon the cross, in which He became our substitute, that is, while He Himself did not sin, He became sin on our behalf (2 Corinthians 5:21) and paid our penalty for sin on the cross.

Then by His literal, physical resurrection our justification has been made whole and sure. He then ascended into heaven where He now sits at God’s mighty right hand, where as our High Priest He intercedes on our behalf and is our advocate. We await His return which we recognise as the pre-tribulation rapture of His Church, and then the pre-millennial second coming bodily return of Christ to judge the living and the dead. It is with this testimony we agree with scripture that Jesus is the foundation and cornerstone of the Church.

John 1:1-2,14; Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 7:25, 9:24; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2; 1 Peter 4:5; Romans 14:9; 2 Timothy 4:1; 1 Corinthians 3:11


Not only is God worthy of all our praise but we willingly sing songs to Him out of an immense joy of who He is and what He has done. We believe it is our service to our Heavenly Father not only to worship Him in song but with our whole life, at home, work and recreation.

John 4:23; Colossians 3:16; 1Thessalonians 5:16-18

The godhead

We attest to one God existing eternally in three persons who are equal in nature, power, glory, attributes, sovereignty and perfection. Who all share the same mind and will, they are God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14

We also believe all three persons are active in salvation.

1 Peter 1:2

Holy spirit

He is a person who proceeds from God to convict people of their sins and awaken their dead souls (Ephesians 2:5) and is vital in the regeneration of a persons heart. He baptizes all believers into the body of Christ. He is given by Jesus to indwell and seal us unto the day of redemption, by leading, guiding, convicting and comforting all followers of Christ

John 16:8-11; 2 Corinthians 3:6; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18


It is the good news of the cross and is the most precious gift given by God. A gift we did not deserve but out of His love, mercy and grace He gave it freely to anyone who comes and asks. It comes through admitting we have sinned and fallen short of God’s standards and comes only through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the work on the cross, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. Jesus is the only way to salvation and the only way to God. Salvation of the believer is eternally secure.  Salvation cannot be earned.  Therefore, it cannot be lost.

Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19

Calvary Chapel Perth - A Little History

We have a long standing presence in the community with our church being in the city of Gosnells for over 20 years and currently in Canning Vale.
The church has always held on to its mandate; to teach the Word of God verse by verse and chapter by chapter, even teaching those tough truths that some churches skip over. Calvary Chapel Perth has always been community focused and has seen families come together, grow together and form strong bonds together that seem to last the test of time.

The church has been involved in outreach programs within our community including a radio program that aired for five years. We are actively engaged in a missions outreach in Asia, a door that was opened to us by the Lord. We are grateful for what God has done in the past and we’re excited about what He has planned for us ahead.
