With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there’s still a church that feels like a church. It won’t be like a rock concert, comedy club, or motivational seminar. It’s not old-fashioned , as in 50 years ago. It is timeless, as in 2,000 years ago.

Dynamic, passionate preaching straight from the Bible still brings more lasting change than comedy routines, drama, or motivational talks. Come discover the benefit of Bible preaching.
Preaching conjures up a lot of different images in people’s minds these days. Boring. Dry. Irrelevant. May we clarify it a bit? Preaching is simply a passionate and dynamic communication of an important and vital truth from the Bible. The preaching you will hear will first of all be Bible-centered. We still believe in the absolute truth of the time-tested Word of God. Be sure to bring your Bible because you will need it. Second, it will be relevant and clear. You won’t wonder what the point was and you will be able to use it immediately. Last, it will be passionate and unapologetic. In a culture of “believe-whatever-you-want-regardless-of-whether-it-is-actually-true,” preaching might seem offensive to sensitive ears. Rather than water it down and mix it with entertainment, we still believe in that timeless, biblical practice called preaching. At Calvary Baptist Church, we are Still Preaching.
Most church music amounts to dumbing-down the lyrics and cranking up the volume to build interest. The hymns we sing still generate an attitude toward God that is anything but lifeless and boring. At Calvary Baptist Church, we are Still Hymns.
