Watch This Powerful Video

I would encourage everyone to watch this video from Billy Graham ministries. The content is powerful as it speaks straight to the heart. It’s not only for the individual who has never asked Jesus to be Savior and Master of their life, but it’s also for those who call themselves Christians, and yet live in darkness and misery of unrepentant sin. Watch, confess, repent, pray and prepare to be touched by His presence in your life.

–  Pastor David Saenz

THE NEED FOR A SAVIOR

You might ask yourself, “What do you mean by the need for a Savior, why do I need a Savior?” Great question! To say you need a Savior means you need to be saved, but saved from what? Saved from sin and saved from yourself. Romans 3:23 states, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” According to the Bible, the meaning of sin is to “miss the mark”. We can all agree that when it comes to meeting God’s requirements, we all “miss the mark” therefore we are all sinners. Romans further states, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

Why do you need a Savior? Because we are all sinners, and it is the original sin and our continual sin that separates us from God. But as mentioned previously, God’s gift to us is eternal life by His Son if He becomes your Savior. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) Simply stated, we are all sinners in need of a Savior; we cannot satisfy God’s requirements on our own because even our own righteousness is considered “filthy rags” in the eyes of God (Isaiah 64:6), but if we believe in God’s Son – Jesus Christ, we can be saved.

 

GETTING SAVED

How do I get saved? Some people make this more complicated than it really is, but the Bible speaks on “believing” in Jesus in order to be saved (Acts 13:38; 16:31; Romans 10:9). In other words, aside from Jesus, there is no one, or nothing else, that can ever save an individual (Acts 4:12) of eternal separation from God. When a person believes, they come to a point in their life of admitting their sin. Therefore when you come to a point of believing that Jesus died for your sins, you simply admit it – or confess it. Jesus said “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32,32)

How do I confess and admit to God? It’s a simple prayer that goes something like this: Dear Jesus, I confess to You that I am a sinner in need of a Savior. Please forgive me for all of my sins. I accept Your death on the cross as the penalty of my sin. I confess You as my Savior. I ask that You fill me with Your love. Empower me by the Holy Spirit to do Your will in my life. Holy Spirit I pray that You enter into my life as I surrender to You. Father, I thank You for Your gift, Your love, and Your peace upon my life. In Jesus name, amen! If you said that simple prayer and it was true from your heart, then you are now a born-again believer that has eternal salvation in the family of God. Congratulations!!

 

WHAT NEXT?

Just like a newly planted tree that needs care and nourishment, after getting saved it’s imperative that proper care and nourishment is obtained for a new believer.

Therefore we strongly encourage 3 things:

1. Get “rooted and grounded in love” for the Word of God.
Find a church that teaches the Bible and makes the Word of God a priority. It’s important that you learn from God’s Word, the Bible, about His character. The Bible also teaches us how we should also live and how we should treat others. For starters, you might consider reading the Gospel of John.

2. Get together with other believers – we call that fellowship.
The writer of Hebrews teaches us that we should not neglect meeting together, but we should meet and encourage one another. (Hebrews 10:25) Fellowship is very important because we can all help each other. (Proverbs 27:17) It’s also important to find other Christians and let them know that you’ve dedicated your life to Jesus Christ. Get involved with other Christians who are like-minded and will encourage you.

3. Spend time with God – we call that prayer.
The only way you can get to know someone is to communicate with them. Prayer is simply communicating to God. We encourage you to talk with God, let Him know how you feel, ask Him questions and for direction in your life – simply put, have a conversation with God on a daily basis.

We believe that these three things: the Word of God, fellowship, and prayer are instrumental in the development and growth of a healthy new believer. Therefore we encourage you to take these important steps of this new beginning of your life in Jesus Christ. Once again, welcome to the family of God!

 

What We Believe

Our Statement of Faith is a written declaration of our church’s position on matters that pertain to the essentials of historical Christianity. The following statements comprise the Calvary Chapel of Cascade County’s Statement of Faith:

  • We believe that the Bible is inspired by God in its entirety, and is without error in the original autographs, a complete and final written revelation from God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:21)
  • We believe that there is only one God, who is eternal and immutable, and manifesting Himself in three distinct Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)
  • We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah (John 1:36-42), born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35), totally without sin (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26), God in human flesh (John 1:1, 14, John 20:28) the One Who died on the cross for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), was buried (John 19:40-42), rose again from the dead on the third day (John 2:19), and ascended to the right hand of the Father in Heaven, where He now intercedes for us who believe in Him. (Mark 16:19, Acts 7:56, 1 Timothy 2:5)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ will return in the clouds for His church before the tribulation that is coming upon the whole earth (1 Thessalonians 4:16), and that He will return with His saints and all His holy angels to the earth at the end of the tribulation, and set up His kingdom on earth, ruling and reigning forever and ever. (Matthew 24:30-31, Revelation 19:13-14)
    We believe that all humanity is lost and born with a sinful nature, and can only be saved by personal faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and not by any human merit or performance. (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)
  • We believe in a real and literal devil, called Satan, who, along with all his fallen angels and evil spirits, are destined to spend eternity in hell, and now seek to deceive the world, defeat the believers, and destroy the work of God, but can be resisted by believers, who are protected by God, the Holy Spirit and the intercession of Jesus Christ our Lord. (Genesis 3:1, Job 1:6-12, Matthew 4:1-11, Luke 22:31-32, James 4:7; 1 John 4:4, Revelation 20:10,14)
  • We believe that Heaven is a real place where the saved will dwell forever and that Hell is a literal place of torment where unbelievers will suffer eternal separation from God. (John 14:1-3, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 21:8, Revelation 22:5)
  • We believe that genuine believers are born again by the (indwelling of the) Holy Spirit of God, baptizing them into the body of Christ, the true church, and sealed making us inseparable from the love of Jesus Christ. (John 3:1-6, Acts 1:4-5, Romans 8:35-39, Ephesians 1:13-14)
  • We believe that all believers need to be filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live a godly life and to be bold in our witness for the Lord. (Acts 1:8, Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18)
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of all genuine believers in the Lord Jesus Christ which is manifested by the spiritual gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit’s presence by His love. (I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 5:22-23, Ephesians 4:8-12)
  • We believe that the nation of Israel has a special place in God’s plan and that all of the promises of God to Israel will be fulfilled through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 12:3, Genesis 13:15, Deuteronomy 30:3-5, Isaiah 43)
  • We believe that by a direct act of God male and female were created as the human race. Our lives are to reveal His image. (Genesis 1:26-28)
  • We believe marriage is a sacred covenantal union between a man and a woman that limits sexual relations to monogamous, heterosexual marriage. (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-5, Hebrews 13:4)
  • We believe that the solemnizing of a marriage is a sacred and profound event that shall be entered into only where the proposed covenantal union is in compliance with the Word of God. (Genesis 4:1, 1 Corinthians 7:2)
  • We believe that any marriage between men and women of the same sex is contrary to the Word of God and is a sin before God. (Romans 1:21-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9)

 

 

History

Calvary Chapel Cascade County is a part of the Calvary Chapel church movement that began in the 1960s and is considered a non-denominational movement focusing on the inerrancy of the Bible, and the expository teaching of the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation with a verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter, and book-by-book approach.

It is our conviction that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which our hearts are not truly right with God or each other. We endeavor to remain flexible and yielded to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to direct all that we do. We give a great place to music in our worship, desiring that it be inspirational to each of us as we worship him as one body. Additionally, our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God that we might know Him and His will for our lives. It is our desire that His love in and through us manifests itself in our praise and worship and in whatever He calls us to do in His name.

Calvary Chapel Cascade County began meeting as a church on August 17th, 2016. While initially meeting in downtown Great Falls, in the spring of 2017 we relocated to a joint use church facility still within the city. Our current location is at 3400 Flood Road.

We invite you to come with an open heart, just as you are, and ready to worship with us. May the Lord richly bless you.

 

 

Vision

The vision of Calvary Chapel of Cascade County is two-fold. 1) Reaching out those who are unsaved and leading them to a relationship with Jesus as their Savior. 2) Reaching out to Believers who need to return to their “First Love.”

Mission

Calvary Chapel of Cascade County is a fellowship of Believers under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ, and to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is also our desire to raise up and equip the saints for the work of the ministry as we study God’s Word, share life, and pray together. (Acts 2:42, 1:8, 2 Corinthians 3:18)

 

 

FAQs

Is there a dress code?

Absolutely none! We believe God is more concerned about the condition of the heart, than the type or style of clothing we wear. Therefore, we ask that you feel free to dress, with an eye to Biblical modesty, in whatever makes you feel comfortable. Most of us dress in casual attire while some prefer a more formal look. It’s entirely up to you.

Do you have childcare?

Yes, we do. While children are allowed to be in the Sanctuary during the service, we encourage parents to allow their children to participate in our Children’s Ministry where they will have their own worship and biblical lessons, while engaging with other children in their age group. While we encourage this, we understand some families would rather be together during Sunday worship. We’re definitely okay with that, though we kindly request the children not be a distraction to others who might be worshiping, in prayer or meditating on the scriptures during the service.

What do our meetings look like?

Our service begins at 10 am. We start with praise and worship, then conduct a responsive reading from the Psalms. The remainder is spent in an in-depth teaching sermon of the planned scripture passage. Each sermon is designed with the observation of the passage, interpretation of the passage, and the application of the passage. We conclude the service with a brief song, and a word of encouragement. After every service, we fellowship with light snacks and drinks.

We celebrate Communion the first Sunday of each month. During this time, we encourage worship to be done as a family, along with the children, so we can corporately celebrate the Lord’s Supper. We entrust parents to determine if their children are ready to partake in this glorious, yet solemn celebration. Furthermore, we recognize that Communion is both a privilege and an obedient response to the command of Jesus to do this in remembrance of Him. Finally, out of reverence and obedience, we encourage partakers of Communion to be Believers only.

David Saenz

Pastor

Born into the Catholic Church and raised by a single mom, I was the youngest of 5 children (1 sister and 3 brothers) while in Southern California. Since we didn’t have a father in our house and my oldest brother was nearly 15 years older than I, he was the father image I had growing up. As a young kid, my oldest brother was my hero and I wanted to be just like him. As he got older, he became a Jehovah’s Witness and so as I naturally followed in his footsteps. I was fully committed to the organization and was baptized at a relatively young age (age 11) for most Jehovah’s Witnesses. Being comfortable going door-to-door, conversing with people, selling Watchtower and Awake magazines, attending annual assembly gatherings, and being dedicated to the weekly meetings was really all I knew growing up. As far as I was taught, everything outside of the organization was worldly and satanic; and I was warned not to step outside of the organization, or question anything for that matter.

As a teenager, I became more naturally and respectfully curious, and seriously believed in Jehovah and wanted to honor Him. Meantime I met a young girl who got my attention in high school and I began my focus toward her. As we got more and more involved, I began to skip Kingdom Hall meetings. Over time, I was visited by elders from the organization after several indicators from my lack of attendance (or lack of dedication) was raised. After several questions from them, I admitted to my sin that we had committed. But I indicated that I recognized “it was sin and I already asked Jehovah to forgive me.” I was then instructed to go to the Kingdom Hall and repent before the remaining elders. I didn’t sense that was correct since I had already confessed and repented to God to forgive me. I was then told that I had a certain timeframe to perform this otherwise I was going to be “dis-fellowshipped from the organization.” I respectfully would not agree to meet their demand, so I was formally kicked out from the organization.

Meanwhile I had already begun going to a Christian church with my girlfriend whose family was raised in a Pentecostal church. After attending church service, and enjoying the Youth Ministry it had on Friday evenings, I began to attend that church. My girlfriend’s father was a minister and I had joined their family one evening (Aug 1980) as he was a guest speaker to an all-black, on fire for Jesus, Pentecostal church service! All I remember was the pastor of the church giving an alter call, and I felt the Holy Spirit almost literally tugging my heart to come to the alter - so there I was, weeping for my sins that Jesus had died for, and for the Holy Spirit to come into my life as I said a sinner’s prayer.

That night I remember going home and praying when I went to bed that evening. Wanting to please God I remember saying something like, “Jehovah I’m not sure I understand what I did this evening, but it felt right. I just want to please You. So please show me somehow that what I did was something that You agree with.” As I recall, I had a peaceful sleep that night. When I awoke the following morning, before I could realize that I was awake I said, “1 Corinthians 2:12.” I had no idea where that came from because as far as I could recall, this was not a verse that I had heard the night previously. I was so excited about what had happened that I called up my girlfriend and told her what took place. She said, “What did the verse say?” Well I hadn’t even looked it up yet, so while she was on the phone I searched it in the Bible. It stated, “Now you have received not the Spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” This was God’s confirmation to me that what I had done the night before of asking Jesus to come into my life, was a real event; and more importantly, that it pleased God. It has become my life verse.

That day I remember running across the street to an elderly neighbor who was a dear friend of the family to tell her about it, and much to my surprise she told me that she had been praying for me. While still in high school, I recall being on fire for Jesus and excited about what I had done. In addition, I had a teacher who taught a “Bible as Literature” class that I had informed, and she told me she had been praying for me as well. Finally I had an English teacher who I had informed, and it turns out he was also a born-again believer. Both teachers allowed me to give my testimony as a part of my classwork, which was very exciting!

As a senior in high school at age 17, my girlfriend and I were married (I would not recommend this for anyone), and at age 18 our son was born. Julie and I have had our struggles, mostly due to our immaturity thinking we were ready to be married at such a young age.

I was always fairly serious about church, but didn’t fully understand the relationship that Jesus wanted from me. Getting older and raising a family, we began to get more involved with church (thanks to Julie). Around the age of 25, I began to have a strange thought and feeling about one day preaching/teaching and pastoring. Getting more involved with church ministry, I had attended Bible College, and eventually was ordained by Calvary Chapel of Simi Valley (Pastor David Guzik).

In the early 90’s by circumstances orchestrated by God, we ended up in Great Falls Montana from Southern California. Encouraged to begin a Calvary Chapel, eventually Calvary Chapel of Great Falls was formed. After about 7 years, other personal family circumstances had risen, and we had relocated back to California. Returning to California for several years, but longing to return to Montana, and after our children were all raised and married, both Julie and I returned to Great Falls Montana in 2015.

Having pastored a church previously, and once again being encouraged to plant another church, and after much prayer and direction from God – Calvary Chapel of Cascade County was formed.

Julie and I have just celebrated our 37th year of marriage (2018). We’ve been blessed with 4 wonderful children that have given us 12 grandchildren (with one on the way). God is good.

Michael Paparella

Elder

I was born and raised in Connecticut, the oldest of 4 children.  My mother was Jewish who came to faith, and my father pastored 2 churches for several years (one of which he planted).

I grew up in the church, but like many of us so often do, I drifted away after graduating from High School.  I enlisted in the Air Force the next year and after that went to college, got married and basically wandered through life without direction or purpose.  Years later, I met a friend who was a believer and we started talking about Jesus and the Bible.  I then began, slowly at first, to delve into the Scriptures and listen to Bible studies on the radio.

It took me a while to get saved because I already knew God was real and that Jesus was His Son. This led me to unknowingly create a wall between myself and the truth, as I thought I already had the truth.  Listening to a Bible study one day, something the teacher said struck me, and even though I was learning God’s word, I remember actually saying out loud: “Oh my God, it’s true!” I finally had my first real glimpse and understanding of who Jesus really was and what He did, and my heart was changed.  I gave my life to Jesus, and I’ve never looked back.

My favorite Bible verse is Psalm 119:71 “It is good for me that I have been afflicted that I might learn thy statutes.”  The first 2 plus years of my walk were mostly spent working and caring for my increasingly ailing wife, Sue.  Having the radio on when I was in the car listening to Bible studies was something that kept me grounded and focused.  After Sue died, I began to open the scriptures daily and really study them.  While reading Psalm 119, I got to verse 71, and realized, in a certain sense, it was a truth I was living out.

For Sue’s memorial service I selected Romans 12:9-21 to be read.  Shortly after I asked God, “Now that I don’t have to take care of Sue anymore, what do You want me to do for You.”  That was when ministry began for me as God put on my heart to study the scriptures, and to write.  I then started sending what I wrote to everyone on my e-mail list.  This also led to what I call my Homeless Ministry, loosely based on Romans 12:20-21.  It started with giving a bottle of water with a dollar bill secured to it to people standing at the entrance to Walmart.  As God began to bless my little ministry, I wrote a gospel tract and put it in a baggie along with what God had blessed me with financially, and secured that to the bottle of water.

Early on, when I began to realize it was God directing my path, it told me something about how personal our relationship is, something I hadn’t fully understood. This fueled in me a desire to want to know Him better and to finally learn what it really means to walk with Him.  I decided to set aside some time every day for what I refer to as my prayer closet time, and my personal prayer and communion with Him has really blossomed.  This led to conducting my life from a God-centered perspective in everything.  I’m still a work in progress, as all born-again believer are, but making it my top priority keeps me focused on what really is important.

I love to walk, taking in God’s creation, sometimes praying as I go, sometimes just marveling at what I see or what Jesus has done in and though my life.  I really enjoy reading and preparing for our Men’s Bible study.  I have 1 son, 2 daughters, 11 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren.  I’m humbled when I consider just how blessed I really am.  Thank you, Jesus…

Jaysen Basu

Elder

Raised in a Catholic home, my family and I didn't really attend church on a regular basis, so I never really had a relationship with Jesus. After hearing the Gospel preached clearly for the first time by a military chaplain, I got saved in 2010 as I was stationed in South Korea. My favorite Bible verse is Ephesians 6:10-18 as the passage speaks to me that there is always a spiritual battle being waged reminding me of my constant dependence on the Lord's protection. Know how empty life can be without Jesus, my heart for ministry is to reach out to those who are lost. I want to help save people and help them develop a personal relationship with Jesus. Recently, the Lord has caused my relationship to grow in Him by putting a desire in my heart to commit to reading my Bible daily. Although I was already a Christian, I struggled with reading my Bible on a daily basis. Today, I see this as a more personal and intimate moment I get to spend with Jesus. I also enjoy spending time with my lovely wife Elizabeth and my two beautiful daughters, Jaylin and Adaline.

Jim Leeming

Elder

Raised in a Christian family in a suburb of Chicago Illinois with an older sister by both parents. Sundays were dedicated to Sunday school and church. At the time we were pre-liberal Congregationalists and Presbyterians. Initially during high school wanted to become a chemical engineer but decided to enlist in the Navy. During the Pacific War we carried anti-submarine nets and floats on a Liberty Ship to place in front of friendly island moorings. We had no chaplain aboard but when moored at the islands we serviced, attended church ashore. After serving in the Navy, discharged in early 1946, I graduated from to the University of Illinois as a Metallurgical Engineer. While married and raising a family, we lived in San Clemente, CA. During this time I was asked to visit a nursing home for the elderly and give a talk one Sunday. From this event, it changed my life as I started in my spare time visiting hospitals and nursing homes and from time to time in the churches I attended and gave sermons on my relationship with the LORD. This resulted in becoming an official visitation representative for my church. During the 30 years of this ministry, I was compelled to help old folks in our churches with minor home repair jobs and had cards printed up and distributed containing, Proverbs 27:10, “Better a friend nearby than a brother far away.”

Served as an Elder for a large Presbyterian church for over 20 years. Three of those years as a discussion leader with Bible Study Fellowship but had to resign when my wife decided on a divorce!

Spent over twenty years providing the morning sermons at the Beartooth Nursing Home, the last ten years gave or arranged the Sunday morning service at East Rose Bud Lake. MT.

Got saved over 60 years ago while visiting a nuclear power plant in Oak Ridge TN when one lonely night I had a strong desire to get down on my knees and ask the Lord to become the focus of my life!

My favorite Bible verse is 1Thess. 5:16-18 as it’s the only verse that specifically tells us what is God’s Will for our life!

God continues to convince me that He is precisely Who He claims to be and has done exactly what He has claimed to have done!

I have four wonderful daughters, eight grandchildren, and twenty of the cutest great grandchildren you’ve every seen! I enjoy spending as much time in God's great outdoors as possible and being positively amazed at the beauty!

I am forever grateful to have been able to travel across this great country with my family, walking through the woods, visiting our National Parks, boating on Lake Michigan and down the Mississippi River and able to appreciate the mighty work of His Hands!
