What of Missions?
Before the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, he commissioned his church to carry the gospel to every nation. He was clear that the church was the instrument that would be used by Him to teach all nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to observe all of His commandments
.The Great Commission is found in Matthew 28:19-20 as written, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.“
Calvary Baptist Church keeps as a core principal the training, supporting and sending of missionaries. Sin
ce 1960 our church has supported missionaries on every continent, many U.S. states, and many islands. Our first missionaries were the Steffey’s to the Philippine Islands. We currently support missionaries in many far reaching lands, including places like Ukraine, Sao Tome and Principe, and the islands of Indonesia.
Missions is a regular part of the daily life of our church. We regularly have guest missionaries speak from our pulpit. We conduct an annual Faith Promise missions conference and we host the Church Planting & Home Missions Conference every year following the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
