We Deeply Love Jesus.

If there is one thing you should know about Calvary Baptist Church, it is this: we deeply love Jesus.

We affirm what the Bible says about Him: that Jesus is God, who came into the world in human form. We believe that Jesus came with the expressed purpose of reconciling humanity to God.

He is the only human being who ever lived a perfect, sinless life. And yet, he stood in our place to accept the penalty for sin. He lived the life we should have lived, and died the death we deserved to die. Just as important, we also believe that Jesus rose from the dead. He not only suffered for our sins, but he triumphed over sin itself! The new life that he earned is available to us, and in that new life we live in relationship with God, forsaking all that we hold dear to follow him with reckless abandon.

Having a relationship with Jesus will literally change your life . . . forever. If you have questions about how Jesus can change your life, please contact us.

Our message is clear and simple.  We believe that the hope for Parkersburg and the nations is the Gospel. We believe that it is the “power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes.” We want to saturate the city and the world with the good news by proclaiming it with clarity and love, and by practicing good deeds that glorify Jesus. We desire to be a blessing to the city and to the nations with our actions and our words.

We believe this emphasis on the simplicity and power of the Gospel will also help us be unified. We can agree to disagree over matters that are not of first importance. But on the Gospel, we will be together. We refuse to argue over trivial matters because of the urgency of getting the Gospel to the nations.
