Our Mission

At Calvary, we have a very simple philosophy.  

Our Mission, the reason we exist, is four-fold: 

Love God, Love People, Grow In Faith, and Change the World

Love God

Jesus said that loving God with all that we are is the greatest commandment (Matthew 22:37-38).  For this reason it is our first priority at Calvary.  

Every Sunday we gather together to love God passionately through our worship.  Lives are changed when we Love the LORD with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our strength.

This fulfills our first core value.

Love People

Loving People is the second reason we exist.  We cannot love God if we do not love one another.  

We go out of our way to make everyone feel loved and welcomed at Calvary because Jesus died for everyone.  Nobody is ever left out at Calvary.

Several times a year we have Connect Groups where families across Hood County host fun nights in homes and businesses.  During these fun nights we do anything from playing board games to eating international cuisine to bowling.  The purpose is to build relationships and learn to love one another outside the four walls of the church building.

This fulfills our second core value.

Grow In Faith

Scripture says, "So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God," (Romans 10:17).

We take the Word of God seriously and seek to base all of our beliefs directly on the Bible.  Every Tuesday night we hold age specific Grow In Faith Bible Study classes where we study the Bible in-depth.  

Through studying God's Word our faith is strengthened and our knowledge is increased.

This fulfills our third core value.

Change the World

Not only did Jesus Christ change the world through His death at Calvary, He changed the world through every step that He took, every life that He touched, and every word that He spoke.

We believe the way we can change our world is through service.  By giving of ourselves in ministry to others, we can Change the World.  By serving others, we not only share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we also example what it means to be a Christian.

We fulfill our fourth core value by Serving.
