Calvary Chapel Greeneville’s vision is to teach God’s word and reach out in love. In every ministry, outreach, and service we desire to bring Christians closer to God and to bring nonbelievers to a saving knowledge of and close relationship with Him. It is always our goal to accomplish this by showing how God’s Word and faith in Him are applicable and relevant to everyday life.
Jesus Christ: Is the foundation and cornerstone of the church. He came to restore man’s broken relationship with God. His finished work on the cross made that possible.
(1 Corinthians 3:11, Ephesians 2:20, Romans 5:6-10)
The Bible: Is the inspired, infallible word of God and is relevant and applicable to man today. Therefore, we place great emphasis upon teaching it in public, studying it in private, and using it as a guide for our daily lives.
(1 Timothy 4:13, 2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:13)
Worship: We believe God is worthy of all praise, reverence and love. We take special time to worship Him in church through song. It is our goal to worship Him with our whole lives as well; at home, at work and at play.
(John 4:23, Colossians 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
Christian Growth: As believers, we are to be growing in our walk with the Lord. We encourage this by abiding in Jesus Christ through obedience to His word, prayer, fellowship and by yielding our lives to the Holy Spirit.
(John 15:4, Romans 8:29, Ephesians 5:18)

History of Calvary Chapel Greeneville
Calvary Chapel Greeneville began in 1997 with a small fellowship of believers committed to teaching God’s word and reaching out in love. Although years have past and much is different, one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to teaching God’s word and reaching out in love.
Calvary Chapel Greeneville was built on the principles that the believers of the first century followed in Acts 2:32–47, “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. . . . and the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.”
