Also known as “Golgotha” or “the place of the skull,” Calvary is a small hill outside old Jerusalem where our Lord Jesus was crucified. We take this name for our church because there is no greater thing than that our Lord died on a cross to pay the price for our sins. We celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection because those who believe in Him will live forever in victory with Him. This great gift is given by His grace alone. This name is a continual reminder of His victory over sin and death!
We are Baptist in our beliefs and practices because we believe that this is the most accurate understanding of God's Word. God's Word, the Bible, is the only authority to direct us in Christian life. Our church is independent from all denominational oversight and associations. We choose our own pastors and deacons: men evidencing lives directed by the Spirit of God.
Scripture tells us the church is made up of those who believe in Jesus Christ and are baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are among the living stones from which Christ's church is built. We intend to be as authentic as we can in this life, but yet also realize that we are not yet made perfect. We are a group of people under the continual process of the Lord's refining to be made more and more like Him in everything we say and do. We are a work in progress that is far from finished, but by His grace and love we strive on.
We trust wholly in the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation and believe in Baptist principles, teachings, and practices as follows:
