Calvary Chapel



Our Services

What are services like?
The Calvary Chapel Church has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the body of Christ. We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians. • We Believe: worship of God should be Spiritual. Therefore: We remain flexible and yielded to the Holy Spirit to direct our worship • We Believe: worship of God should be Inspirational. Therefore: We give a great place to music in our worship • We Believe: worship of God should be Intelligent. Therefore: Our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped • We Believe: worship of God is Fruitful. Therefore: We look for His Love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him

What is the community like?
We are a loving family

Scott Gurwell

Scott Gurwell is the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel of Liberty Missouri. He has been serving the Lord for over 30 years, Scott began his journey at Calvary Chapel Downey, California. His pastor Jeff Johnson encouraged him to begin pastoral studies at Calvary Chapel School of the Word, from there the Lord led him to continue studying full time at Calvary Chapel Bible College in Twin Peaks which is located in the San Bernardino Mountains of California. Scott has been in full time ministry since 1995 as the Lord led him to the Midwest to be a part of a Calvary Chapel church plant in Saint Joseph, Missouri, where he served for eight years. Some of his duties there were Children’s Ministry Director, Facility Supervisor and Bible College Director. From there the Lord led Scott to Liberty, Missouri where he currently serves as Senior Pastor/Teacher and Bible Expositor. The emphasis within his ministry is a verse by verse study of the Word of God, giving its full counsel. His studies pay particular attention to the practical application, contemporary examples, and incorporation of the Word into our daily lives. As a result, his studies are extremely interesting, informative, and spiritually challenging. His influence has experienced a steady growth over the years with people of all ages and through a variety of settings. Under the ministry of Scott Gurwell, Calvary Chapel of Liberty has continued to grow and be a light in the community offering Teaching seminars, Bible classes, home studies, various training programs and mission outreaches. His teachings are now being heard here as well as on pod casts and on the radio program “Liberty Road.” Scott is supported in his ministry by his wife Cindy, and two children Jeremy and Petra.
