MCDC has been sharing God's Word


Mt. Calvary Deliverance Church was planted in April 1999 where  Pastor Terrence Shaw serves as the Senior Pastor with a goal of "Building Faithful Families For Fulfilling Futures" and reaching those far from Christ.

Our Beliefs

We the Mt. Calvary Deliverance Church Believe in one God , and that He only is God (Exodus 6:3; Isaiah 45:5-6; John 17:3); that He is eternal (Genesis 1:1; Exodus 3:14, 32:40; Psalm 90:21, 102:27; 1 Timothy 1:17; Revelation 1:8, 4:24); infinite in wisdom (Job 11:7-10; Psalm 145:3); goodness (Psalm 36:6, 104:21, 145:9, 16; Matthew 5:45); mercy, love and grace (Psalm 107:1; John 3:16; Luke 1:45; Romans 9:16; Ephesians 1:6-7, 2:4-9; Titus 2:11); power (John 42:2; Matthew 19:26; Luke 1:37); that He is maker of Heaven and Earth (Genesis 1; John 1:3); and that as God He is triune, being revealed as Father, Son and Holy Ghost (Matthew 26:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 1 John 5:7).

We believe the Father is the first person of the Godhead his revelation comes in knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ whom He makes known (Matthew 16:17). He is the Father of Jesus and the Father of humanity, our Father (Matthew 6:9). He is the One who loved the world so, He gave His only Son (John 3:16). He was unknown to us (John 14:6) and becomes known to us through Jesus Christ (John 14:7).

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God , the revelation and manifestation of the Word made flesh, co-equal and co-existent, with the Father, and the Holy Ghost. We further believe that in the fullness of time He was manifested in the flesh, and incarnated by the power of the Holy Ghost (Luke 1:34-35), in the womb of the Virgin Mary (John 1:1-4). In John 20:31, “these things are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God; and that believing, ye might have life through His name.”

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third Person in the Triune Godhead , and that He is ever present and active in the church; convicting (John 14:16m 16:18) and regenerating those who believe in Jesus Christ; dwelling in, sanctifying and comforting believers (John 14:16-17, 17:17); and guiding them into all truths as in Christ Jesus (John 16:13).

Hear, O Israel, The Lord Our God is One God: The one God manifests himself in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The Father in creation, the Son in redemption, the Holy Ghost, in Resurrection. This is the one true God that we believe in.
