If there was ever a time our faith was needed, the time is now. An encounter can be defined as an unexpected moment that comes upon a person or catches a person by surprise. The pressure of a changing social economy and evolving norms in our culture has taken our world by surprise. However, these changing phenomena are an encouragement to believers to seek the wisdom and counsel of God for daily living as never before. As our times change, believers can take comfort in the unfolding of Scripture and its message of hope. Our hope is found in the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible describes Him as the same yesterday, today and forever. Beloved, regardless of the changing times, God’s manifest love for us never changes.
Jesus is the mediator between God and man, the eternal hope of glory that lives in each of us. It’s because of the hope we have in Him that we can survive the changing landscape of our times, but to do so requires an encounter with the person of Jesus Christ. As human beings, we can often be exposed to knowledge about Jesus but never experience the true transformation to become followers and disciples of Jesus Christ.
At Calvary, we believe the Scriptures’ recording of events; every person who ENCOUNTERED Jesus was changed. Their lives were never the same. We believe it’s still true today. The man born blind, the woman with the consistent hemorrhaging, and the little boy with extreme seizures and psychotic fits of rage – all were healed because of one ENCOUNTER with Jesus, who is the CHRIST. We believe that the Old Testament accounts of Moses’ burning bush, Jacob’s wrestling with the angel and Daniel’s lion’s den were all demonstrations of an Encounter with God that changed the lives of these men forever.
Friends, we want this change for you and your family. We want you to know God through the person of Jesus Christ and experience a changed life forever. Join us at one of our weekly services on Sunday mornings at 10 AM or Dominion Life Study on Wednesdays at 7PM, or connect with us at one of our gatherings for men, women, or children. Come partner with us in our outreach to those in need. We are a people being equipped to empower others to ENCOUNTER Jesus. We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our services. The life change you seek awaits you with one ENCOUNTER with Jesus.
