Mission Statement: 

Charlottesville Abundant Life Ministries (CALM) is a partnership among the residents of the Prospect Avenue neighborhood (including Blue Ridge Commons Apartments, Prospect & Orangedale Avenues, and Bailey Road), local churches, and Trinity Presbyterian (our founding church partner). This partnership between residents and church volunteers began in 1995. Together, we desire to address spiritual, educational, and economic needs by offering Christ-centered programs and by sharing our lives together.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
3. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.
4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential.
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
6. We believe in the resurrection of both of the saved and lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
