Take a tour of our church!




At Calvary Baptist Church, we use God’s inspired Word, the Holy Bible as our guideline in all we do. It teaches that there is one triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who died on the cross to save us and rose from the dead. The Holy Spirit indwells and seals all believers, making true believers secure forever. Man cannot save himself and must receive the free gift of salvation by personally trusting the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. Click here for a detailed statement of faith.
