Welcome to Our Church

Dear Friend,

Do you know Jesus?

The Bible states that Jesus Christ is the son of God and God’s one and only plan for reuniting Himself with sinful man;  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NKJV

The greatest decision we can ever make in this life is to ask Jesus Christ to become our Lord and Savior.  Our eternal life is secure in Him alone.  And the closer we walk with Jesus now, the more our values and perspectives begin to coincide with His.  Life’s difficulties no longer have to control our happiness and peace of mind.  “All things work together for good to those who love God…”  Romans 8:28 NKJV.

If you have not met Jesus yet, Calvary Chapel Hemet would like to introduce Him to you.  We are a neighborhood church who loves Jesus and we love one another.  We invite you, your family and friends to join us in learning, growing in and loving God!
May the Lord bless you and keep you!
We hope to see you soon! 


About Us

Calvary 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.

The Gospel

The Gospel

Bad News / Good News

The Gospel, by its most simple definition, is good news.

But what is good news to the person who has no cares? What would it mean to the millionaire to hear that he just inherited a large sum of money… Oh that’s nice, he may think. But for a pauper to receive that kind of news, truly that is the greatest news!

The good news of the Gospel is often met with skepticism by those who have no cares where eternity is concerned…

“I’m okay, you’re ok…. Heaven and hell don’t really exist…. I’m a good person so if there is a heaven, I’ll certainly get there by my own merits!”

The Gospel will have no affect on those who think this way. The good news is not necessarily welcomed news because there’s no need in their life that would warrant the need for “good news”. Or so they would think.

Let’s face it, the value of good news depends on the bad news it intends to counter and in the case of the Gospel the bad news is that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. But what that really means should shake every single one of us to the very core of our being because there is a penalty for falling short of that glory and the penalty is spending eternity in a place called Hell.

That’s right! While many so called christians are preaching and teaching and writing books that say there is no hell or that it’s simply a state of mind or some sort of spiritualized metaphor, we remain committed to what the Bible says on the subject that there is a literal hell and people really do end up there because they choose to reject the good news that Jesus died in their place

If you have stumbled onto this website and you’re not sure what you think, we invite you to read on as we attempt to convince you of your greatest need and the good news that Jesus came to fill that need.

Now, this isn’t an invitation to take an inventory of your practical wants and needs. We have to be honest with you. God isn’t looking down from His throne in heaven ready to give you everything you desire, only the forgiveness of sins and a relationship with Him. But to be honest, there really is no comparing that with all the needs in the world!

So read on if you’re interested in seeing just what God did for us even while we didn’t deserve it!
The Gospel 
Paul’s letter to the Romans expresses very clearly the basic truths you need to be saved and have a personal relationship with God. Collectively, these truths are known as the gospel, which simply means good news. Indeed, this is the best news you will ever hear!  Paul wrote:
“for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) Not exactly good news at first, but true nonetheless. As John wrote,“God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5) All it takes is one sin, one minor transgression, to come short of the glory of God. Even the best of us have missed that mark, and there’s nothing we can do about it: “for the wages of sin is death.”  (Romans 6:23) The only price we can offer in exchange for our sins is our own death. Many will indeed pay this price, eternally, for: “it is appointed for men to die once but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)
So how can we be saved? Certainly not by our own righteousness, which the Bible compares to filthy rags. How then? Well, even though “all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God,” Paul wrote that we can be saved and made righteous!
Why would such a holy God do this for sinful people like us? Because of his incredible love:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
But no matter how much He loves us, God can’t simply excuse our sins. On the contrary, His holiness requires that our sins be paid for, because the wages of sin is still death. However, God’s love for us is so great that “he gave his only begotten Son” to pay for our sins Himself! In fact, the ultimate demonstration of God’s love for us was that “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Such amazing love leaves room for only one rational response, as illustrated by those who heard Peter’s first sermon on the day of Pentecost:
“Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Men and brethren, what shall we do?’ Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the LORD our God will call.’” (Acts 2:37-39)
And as Paul wrote:
“if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made into salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)
The best way to put these truths into practice is through prayer, as Paul also wrote:
“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
Your prayer does not need to be elaborate or eloquent. You’re not out to impress God. He already knows everything there is to know about each of us, and He’s not impressed. What He is looking for is humility: 
“for ‘God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.'” (1 Peter 5:5) Therefore, in genuine humility, present your heart to the Lord, for “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart – these, O God, You will not despise.” (Psalm 51:17)
And so, if you’re really serious about repenting of your sins and receiving God’s free gift of forgiveness then pray a prayer similar to this one.You don’t necessarily have to pray it word for word, just talk to God about the elements contained in it:
God, I confess that I have lived mostly for myself. Even the best parts of my life fall short of Your glory. I have sinned more times and in more ways than I can count, and there’s nothing I can do to save myself from the eternal death that I deserve. Thank You so much for loving me enough to send Jesus, Your only Son, to die on the cross for my sins. It should have been me hanging there, but He took my place so I could be freely forgiven. Please forgive all of my sins, Father. I don’t want to live for myself anymore. For the rest of my days, I want to live for the Lord Jesus Christ. And I want the presence of Your Holy Spirit in my life. Amen.
If you genuinely and sincerely prayed this prayer, here’s a promise from the Bible you can hold on to:
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
And, if you have just prayed this prayer with sincerity, congratulations on becoming a child of God! We want to provide you with the encouragement to move forward in your new relationship with Christ. So, either send us an email or call us so we can pray for you and send you some free material.
