Calvary Chapel Helsinki is a non-denominational church with a heavy emphasis on the teaching of the Word of God. We consider the Bible to be both inspired and inerrant, and as such, the only solid foundation for life and doctrine.

Our teaching style directly reflects this belief: we teach the Bible expositorily book by book, chapter by chapter and verse by verse. This means that our sermons are aimed at explaining and detailing the meaning of the scriptural text in its own context.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
— 2. Timothy 3:16-17

The services are structured around the sermon. We usually begin by worshiping the Lord through music and prayer in order to prepare our hearts to meet the Lord at his Word. After the worship and sermon we also usually end with music and prayer.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
— Colossians 3:16

At the end of the service we also leave time for fellowship, coffee and discussion. We consider this a vital part of the service: it gives us, the Body of Christ, an opportunity to exercise our gifts and mutually encourage one another.

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
— Hebrews 10:24,25
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.
— Romans 1:11,12

We welcome you to come and worship the Lord with us!
