Our MISSION 

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

 
Our mission at Calvary is to BUILD our church, REACH our city, and to IMPACT our world for the glory of Jesus Christ.
 
BUILD, REACH AND IMPACT with HOPE, HEALING and RESTORATION
 
The mission is the guiding compass of the church. It gives us direction and points everyone in that direction. Our mission statement may sound simple, but to us, it guides everything we do and flows from the mission of Jesus himself as he described in the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-39 and the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20.
 

Our VISION

WHERE IS GOD TAKING US?

WE BELIEVE GOD IS CALLING US TO BE A CATALYST FOR SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IN HOPKINSVILLE AND BEYOND.

 
 

History

Since our founding in 1974, Calvary has always been “a different kind of Baptist church.” We’ve always reached people others didn’t. Calvary is faithful to the practices which we believe make us unique. We encourage discussion and education among members and in the community, remain committed to the Hopkinsville-Christian County area, intentionally reach out to those with addictions and live on mission. All of these characteristics set Calvary apart. We have a unique past, we are a unique place and we have unique potential.
 
We hope you will soon join us for worship at Calvary and experience the Calvary difference for yourself!

WHAT WE BELIEVE:

GOD

God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, Corinthians 13:14

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5, Hebrews 4:14, 1 Corinthians 15:3, Romans 1:3 

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

2Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13, Acts 1:8, 1Corinthians 2:12, Ephesians 1:13, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:1
THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20, Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119, Proverbs 30:5
ETERNAL SECURITY
Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.
John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12, Hebrews 7:25, 1 Peter 1:3
SALVATION
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works – only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8, John 14:6, Titus 3:5
BAPTISM
Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.
Colossians 2:12, Acts 2:4, Ephesians 2:8, Matthew 28:19
MAN
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward what God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.
Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8, Isaiah 53:6, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1
ETERNITY
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, John 2:25, John 5:11, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15, 1 John 5:11, Matthew 25:31
COMMUNION
Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember His sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross.
Matthew 26:26, Mark 14:22, Luke 22:19, 1 Corinthians 11:23
