Our Philosophy
 
Calvary Chapel Hemet’s philosophy of ministry is very straight forward. We study God’s Word and allow the Holy Spirit to do the work of transformation in our lives. We study God’s Word utilizing an expositional, verse by verse, inductive method allowing the Word of God to speak for itself. Always careful to not interject our own thoughts or agenda. We must be faithful and careful about hearing what the Spirit is saying to the churches in these last days!
 
At Calvary Hemet we place a great emphasis on our worship music. We lean toward a more contemporary style but we love the old hymns and will sing them on a fairly regular basis, offering something for all age groups.  Our skilled musicians make worship their priority and work hard at bringing their best to the worship service.  Our worship is inspired by God and focuses on Jesus Christ who, alone, is worthy of our worship.
