Our Values

Glorifying God:

 

The number one value that we share at Calvary Baptist Church is one, all-encompassing mission to glorify God in everything we say and do. The number one obligation of any church ought to be that of bringing the most glory to God. Calvary Baptist Church is a group of people committed to assembling and publicly worshiping Jesus Christ. 

At Calvary Baptist, ALL ethnicities are welcome to join us in glorifying God. Calvary Baptist Church is racially inclusive because Jesus is. (See Acts 10:34 and Romans 2:11 for Jesus' nondiscriminatory statement.)

 

Using the Word of God:

 

We stand on the Word of God as our source for truth, both in teaching a person how to live and in providing direction for our church. Our church is a place that proclaims and defends the truth.

 

Service:

 

Even Jesus said that He "came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." (Matthew 20:28) While He was on this earth he was constantly reaching out to others and meeting their needs both physically and spiritually. We desire to care for others in Even Jesus said that He "came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." (Matthew 20:28) While He was on this earth he was constantly reaching out to others and meeting their needs both physically and spiritually. We desire to care for others in our community and around the world by serving them.

 

Taking the Gospel of God to the World:

 

God is just, which means that He must deal with our sin. But God loves us emphatically, which is why He allowed His own Son to suffer the full consequences of our sin, in our place, so that all men might have opportunity to spend forever with God in Heaven. This is called the Gospel, or the "good news." At Calvary Baptist, we believe that it is our responsibility and privilege to take this Gospel across the street to our neighbors and around the world to the untold. We desire to take the Gospel to anyone and everyone who has yet to accept its wonderful message by grace through faith. 

 

Discipleship:

 

Jesus' final instruction to His followers was that they would go into all the nations "teaching them to observe all things" that He has taught them. (Matthew 28:18-20) If discipling others is that important to Jesus, it ought to be that important to the church. At Calvary Baptist Church, we desire to teach truths right from the pages of the Bible. Then we desire to train men and women, boys and girls, how they can live out those truths in real life. We desire to train Christians to become not just leaders, but leaders of leaders.
