A word from our pastor
The desire of Calvary Baptist Church is to be a lighthouse in our community for Jesus. We believe the greatest need of everyone is a spiritual need to have a relationship with our Creator. The Father supplied that need by giving us His Son, Jesus Christ to meet that need that we could not. At Calvary we are committed to be a church that would be welcoming to everyone and to share the love of Jesus. We teach the death, burial and resurrectionof Christ and believe our only authority is The Word of God the Bible.
If you have that need or a believer seaching for a place to worship, we would be honored to have you as a guest. Come as you are and find a friendly atmosphere.
In Christ Jesus,
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
In the early months of 1950, a small group of men and women, was prompted by the love of God, with a desire to have a church in their midst where they could assemble and worship God together. They prayed for the guidance of God for a place to build this church and after much prayer and a mutual understanding it was decided and unanimously agreed they would organize and build a Southern Baptist Church on the corner of 4th Street and Rollan Avenue, if this land could be purchased. Until they could build a building, they worshipped each Lord's Day under a tent on this location. The church was organized with 26 charter members and the first service was held in the new building on January 14, 1961 as a dedication vice.
The church called it's first Pastor, Rev. J. R. Bearden in 1951. He served as Pastor until August 1952. Rev. O. O. Hollon was unanimously called to serve as Pastor in September 1952 and faithfully served through September 1956. Rev. Fred Lackey was called by the church in October 1956 and remained as Pastor until April 1964. Rev. Clifford Price served as interim Pastor until Rev. Tommy Sinclair was called as Pastor in 1964. There were several interim Pastors and Pastors until December 2006, when Rev. Winston Brooks was called to serve as Pastor and is currently serving in this capacity.
