How do I become a member?

welcome A person may become a member of the Mount Calvary Baptist Church family in one of three (3) ways:
  1. By public acceptance of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and becoming a Candidate for Baptism.
  2. By Christian experience from another church.
  3. By letter of transfer from another church.

Once an individual joins, he/she must then attend our New Members class. We offer classes for both adults and youths. The New Members class imparts foundational knowledge about Jesus Christ, Salvation, Baptism, Tithing, Worship, Prayer, and Stewardship. New Members classes meet every Sunday (except the 5th Sunday) at 9:00 AM in our Education Building.

Once the individual successfully completes the New Members class, he/she will be baptized (if required) and then receive the Right Hand of Fellowship (RHF) as a full pledged member of the body of Christ at the Mount Calvary Baptist Church and thereby, entitled to all rights and privileges.

How do I get involved?

Mount Calvary Baptist Church is always looking for laborers wanting to use their spirtual gifts and talents in serving our Lord.

Articles of Faith


articles of faith
  • WE BELIEVE that the Holy Bible is the divinely inspired, inerrant and revealed word of God and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction.
  • WE BELIEVE the Scriptures teach that there is one, and only one, living and true God, and that in the unit of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
  • WE BELIEVE that Jesus is the Christ, the eternal Son of the Living God, the Savior of men, born of a virgin and equal with the Father in every divine perfection. Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried and rose on the third day according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father.
  • WE BELIEVE the Scriptures teach that Man was created in holiness, but by willfully disobeying God, fell from that holy and happy state.
  • WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures teach that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; through the work of Jesus Christ.
  • WE BELIEVE the Scriptures teach that the great Gospel blessing which Christ secures to those that believe in Him is justification; that justification includes the pardon of sin, and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness.
  • WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures teach that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures teach that in order to be saved, sinners must be regenerated, or born again.
  • WE BELIEVE that there are only two scriptural ordinances commanded by Jesus Christ for the New Testament church: Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
  • WE BELIEVE the Scriptures teach that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer, into the name of the Father, and Son, and Holy Ghost.
  • WE BELIEVE that tithing and offerings are God's financial plan for this church.
