Calvary is a multicultural church seeking to engage with its neighborhood and the world in meaningful ways.
Not what you think...
He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
Yes, we look like a church
No, not THAT kind of church. This kind of church.
We are Christian
We do our best to follow in Jesus' steps. John 3:16 "for God so loved the world..."
We welcome all, especially the outcast, the disappointed, rejected, new to this, doubters, etc. If there was such a thing as "normal" we would welcome them too!
We are fully welcoming and affirming of all of God's children.
We are Baptists
There are many different kinds.
We are the kind that wants to spend most of its time figuring out how to love first when we welcome you.
We are the type where the community gathers, not just the pastor and her/his leadership, to make important choices.
We are the type where racism, exclusion, condemnation, and others are engaged so we learn how to know when we are doing it and how to forgive ourselves and others to begin reconciliation.
we challenge you to take a step beyond
your expectations/assumptions and give relationship a try.
