Calvary Baptist Church supports missionaries around the world.

Calvary Baptist Church is a church of families raising missionaries for Christ, serving our local community, and communities around the world.

As we continue to be obedient to the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to go into all the world and preach the Good News, we believe a major part of this is to support missionaries financially and through prayer.
