Who We Are
We are a friendly church with a heritage in our community. When you visit you will find a caring people who are dedicated to the truthfulness of the Bible and the need to tell others of the Good News about Jesus Christ. We are conservative in our worship with an emphasis on the joy of the Christian life.
Calvary Baptist Church exists to glorify God (Psalm 29:2; 1 Corinthians 10:31) through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God (Acts 2:42), the observance of the ordinances (Acts 2:42), the development of an every-member ministry (Ephesians 4:7-12), the exhortation by means of biblical counsel (Hebrews 3:12-13), the rearing of godly families (Colossians 3:20-21), and fellowship with other believers (Philippians 1:5; Acts 2:42).
We believe that the Bible is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe that God is the Creator and Ruler of the whole universe who deserves all of our love and obedience.
Thou art worhty, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things (Revelation 4:11)
We believe that everyone, instead of loving and obeying God, has turned to his own sinful way.
All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way (Isaiah 53:6)
We believe that our sinful choices lead us to physical and spiritual death.
The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)
We believe that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, came to die for our sins and offers us hope.
But God commendeth [is showing] His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8)
We believe that you can be saved if you turn from your own way and believe that Jesus Christ died to forgive you.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13)
