Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Calvary Baptist Church is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ.
 
The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the nations by means of missionary activity and support, to minister the ordinances, to edify believers, and to do all that is sovereignly possible and biblically permissible to magnify the name of Jesus.
 
 
The history of our church is long one. It was organized in 1961 as Mulberry Baptist Church and met in the Miami Elementary School. In 1963, we purchased the current property, but didn’t move into the building until December of 1964 when the building was completed. In 1980 we felt led to change the name of the church to Calvary Baptist Church and have continued ever since under that name in our current location, building additional buildings and ministries along the way, all for the furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the goal of reaching the lost in our community and around the world in His name.

Church Staff:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ
