At Calvary Baptist Church, we believe that a fundamental precept of our faith is that all Christians are responsible for and contribute to the total ministry of the church, and that our ministries can have many forms as we seek to do God’s will in serving the Lord, the church, and our fellow humans.
We offer more than 20 opportunities for people to get involved in the ministry life here at Calvary.
