|John 4 (NKJV™)|
|1||Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John|
|2||(though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples),|
|3||He left Judea and departed again to Galilee.|
|4||But He needed to go through Samaria.|
|5||So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.|
|6||Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.|
|7||A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, 'Give Me a drink."|
|8||For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.|
|9||Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.|
|10||Jesus answered and said to her, 'If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."|
|11||The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?|
|12||"Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?"|
|13||Jesus answered and said to her, 'Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,|
|14||'but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."|
|15||The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw."|
|16||Jesus said to her, 'Go, call your husband, and come here."|
|17||The woman answered and said, 'I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'|
|18||'for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly."|
|19||The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.|
|20||"Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship."|
|21||Jesus said to her, 'Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.|
|22||'You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.|
|23||'But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.|
|24||'God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."|
|25||The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things."|
|26||Jesus said to her, 'I who speak to you am He."|
|27||And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He talked with a woman; yet no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why are You talking with her?"|
|28||The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men,|
|29||"Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?"|
|30||Then they went out of the city and came to Him.|
|31||In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, "Rabbi, eat."|
|32||But He said to them, 'I have food to eat of which you do not know."|
|33||Therefore the disciples said to one another, "Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?"|
|34||Jesus said to them, 'My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.|
|35||'Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!|
|36||'And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.|
|37||'For in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.'|
|38||'I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."|
|39||And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever did."|
|40||So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.|
|41||And many more believed because of His own word.|
|42||Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."|

Who We Are:
We pursue the God who is passionately pursuing a lost world; we do this with one another, through worship, by the Word, to the world.
What We Do:
We express our adoration of Jesus through dynamic worship and uncompromised obedience.
We explain the relevance of the Bible to empower and transform lives for service.
We extend hope to a hurting world by proclaiming the gospel and demonstrating Christ's love.
We Believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
We Believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
We Believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in Holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through faith in Jesus Christ.
We Believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.
We Believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teaching, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth.
We Believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all that believe in Jesus Christ for ministry.
We Believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.
We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We Believe that all people are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
We Believe that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and empowers the believers for service, often subsequent to regeneration.
We Believe in the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head, and all regenerated persons are members.
We Believe that Jesus committed two ordinances to the church: 1) Baptism and, 2) the Lord's Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.
We Believe also in the laying on of hands for baptism of the Holy Spirit, for ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons, and receiving from the Holy Spirit through the believer the gift of healing.
We Believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishing of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.
We Believe in what is termed the Apostles Creed as embodying the fundamental facts of Christian faith.

At Calvary we believe that giving is a matter of the heart and that each person should give according to what they believe the LORD has purposed in their hearts.
We do not take a formal offering at Calvary, however there are brown wooden boxes (Agape boxes) located in and around the sanctuary for your gifts, offerings, and prayer requests. Below you will find resources to help you in the giving process.

Spiritual Cooking 101
Coming to church for spiritual sustenance can be like going to a restaurant for meals. It's all prepared for you and served to you by someone else. A far better way to get your spiritual nourishment is to learn how to get the "ingredients" and prepare the "meals" for yourself. In this series, Skip Heitzig and the Calvary pastoral staff teach how to study the Bible on your own and apply it--how to really "feast on the Word" and satisfy the deepest needs of your heart.
