MEET OUR PASTOR!
After 25 years of serving Calvary Chapel Bangor, Pastor Jim Lord and his wife Brenda have been prompted by the Lord to step out in faith and establish a church in Southern Aroostook and help oversee Calvary Residential Discipleship program in Island Falls.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The most important emphasis of our lives is to glorify God. He has done awesome things, and we want to sit at His feet, express our thanks and praises unto Him, and honor Him by learning more of Him. At each of the services, there is emphasis on praise and worship, and especially verse by verse study of God's Word.
Praise and Worship: The focus of the Worship Ministry is God Himself. The ministry of worship and praise is intended to draw our hearts into an attitude of joyful praise and reflection as we offer up to God.
Biblical Instruction: Learning more of Him is another expression of our faith. As we seek Him through His Word, we continually discover that He is more wonderful than we imagined. Learning more of Him leads us to put less confidence in ourselves and trust more in Him. Pastor Jim teaches verse-by-verse through God's Word. By exploring the Bible in this manner, our hope is to increase your own appetite to study the Word on your own, and discover the life changing truths that are contained within!
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe worship of God should be spiritual.
THEREFORE: We remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We believe worship of God should be inspirational.
THEREFORE: We give a great place to music in our worship.
We believe worship of God should be intelligent.
THEREFORE: Our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching
the Word of God that He might instruct us how He would be worshiped.
We believe worship of God should be fruitful.
THEREFORE: We look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation
that we have truly been worshiping Him.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless blood, in His miracles,
in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are unsaved unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Applying Biblical Truth to the Root of Addiction
The mission of Calvary Residential Discipleship is to train men with life controlling problems who are determined to overcome their bondage. The framework for this program is a process by which desperate men come to accept the Biblical message of becoming a "new creation" through faith in Jesus Christ.
Old things pass away and all things become new (II Corinthians 5:17).
The goal of this twelve-month program is that each graduate become an honest, trustworthy man of God empowered by The Spirit of God.
