Calvary Chapel Memphis has been formed as a fellowship of believers under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We acknowledge all who have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as fellow members of the body of Christ, the Church, and we welcome all genuine believers into the fellowship we enjoy with Him. Our supreme desire is to know Christ, to be conformed into His image and to make Him known.
We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations, only the over emphasis of doctrinal differences that have led to divisions in the Body of Christ. This is not to say that we ignore doctrinal error. We must respond to and correct error whenever possible but, always in the Spirit of Meekness and Love.
The only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (Agape) love, which is far greater than differences we may possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves to be authentic Christians.
