Jesus commands and empowers CBC to DEMONSTRATE His love, DECLARE the Good News, and DISCIPLE near and far.

Calvary Baptist Church understands and demonstrates its calling in the context of six core values which define, guide, and focus our ministry.
A Commitment To The Word Of God
The authority for all we do originates from the infallible and inerrant Word of God. We commit ourselves to its teaching, to demonstrate what it says, and to allow ourselves to be transformed by its truth. We are committed to disciple through accurately teaching and preaching the Word of God at every opportunity.
Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Timothy 4:13; Proverbs 30:5; Deuteronomy 12:32; Psalm 119:105; Joshua 1:7-8
A Foundation Of Prayer
All we do must have a foundation of prayer. Without prayer, there is no reason to anticipate the demonstration of the Holy Spirit’s power and presence in our ministry. We strive to make CBC a House of Prayer.
Philippians 4:4-7; Romans 8:26-28; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Matthew 6:9-13; Colossians 4:2-4; Psalm 145:18
Taking The Gospel To The Ends Of The Earth
The conviction that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation compels us to pursue vigorous and creative means of spreading the Gospel. CBC demonstrates God’s love and declares the gospel message in the local community and to the ends of the earth by going as a church–sending both members and financial support–to take the message to all who need to hear.
Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; Matthew 5:16; Romans 1:16; John 3:16:1 Timothy 1:15; Matthew 4:19
Making Disciples of All People
We strive to disciple people of all ages and backgrounds. We work together to equip and encourage people as they take their next step in their relationship with God. The diversity in our church family demonstrates God’s love for all people and reflects the importance of continuous, lifelong growth in our relationship with God.
Matthew 28:18-20; John 15:16; Romans 12:1-2; Luke 10:1-3; Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23
A Community Where All People Are Embraced And Belong
We believe we are meant to live our faith in community, not in isolation. We need each other and are stronger when we follow God together. This is demonstrated through our small groups as well as how we welcome and embrace all people. Calvary is a community where all people can find a place to belong.
1 Corinthians 13:1-13; Hebrews 11:24-25; Ephesians 4:1-6; 1 John 4:7-12; Philippians 2:1-6; Ephesians 2:19-22
A Passion For Strong Congregational And Individual Worship
Our congregational worship seeks to honor God while drawing people into an awareness of the presence of God. We also strive to honor God in all we do, living a life of sacrificial worship. One way we demonstrate this is by striving to do the best we can, in all things, for His glory.
Romans 12:1-2; John 4:21-24; Hebrews 12:28-29; 1 Chronicles 16:23-31; Psalm 29:1-11; Psalm 100:1-5
