Our Desire is Spiritual Growth!

We feel strongly about honoring and glorifying God in everything we do. Our desire to help you and your family do the same. In order to accomplish this, we strive to ensure each ministry of our church is geared to doing exactly that – growing people. We see full maturity in Christ as individuals who are God loving examples, Word filled teachers, and ministry minded overseers. Whew! I know, that is a mouth full. Let’s break it down in some simpler terms. We want to see each person…

    • Going (being a witness or example of God’s love so that other’s will want the same)
    • Growing (learning and living the principles so we become teacher’s of the Word)
    • Serving (using our talents and abilities in the service of our Great God)

This is our passion! Helping people know God, love God, love other, teach, others, and serve Him. As a result, we have ordered our ministries around three things listed above.



Christ, just before ascending into Heaven, left us with a tremendous commission. He said, “… ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) At Calvary Baptist, we take this commission seriously. Our Going ministries involve helping each person be a witness for Christ. We accomplish this by using GROW outreach. You can learn more about it by clicking here. In a nutshell, GROW is a soul winning program designed to teach and assist every person in our church to be a “witness” for Christ. GROW is our local outreach reaching the town and county of Bedford for Christ. However, we don’t want to neglect our duty to the rest of the world. Calvary Baptist Church is also a mission minded church. We use our Faith Promise Mission’s program to support many missionaries who are serving God around the globe.



Growing is all about discipleship. Not only are we to be going, we need to be growing. Our discipleship program is designed to help each believer grow in their love for the Lord and for others. For this to happen, we emphasize being diligent students of God Word. We encourage people not only through our discipleship program, but also through the weekly messages to learn and apply the wonderful principles of God’s Word. It is these principles that allow us to grow or mature to the point that we become not just student, but also teachers. Here at Calvary Baptist our discipleship is run in our small group’s ministry which is our Sunday School Bible Study. Every Sunday morning at 9:45 a.m. there is a Bible study group for everyone of all ages. You can learn more about them here and about how you can connect to a group just for you.



The Christian life is not just about going and growing. We are also expected to be serving. God has uniquely gifted each of us with talents and abilities. Here are Calvary Baptist we expect each person to be involved in some ministry of our church. We consider it a waste of God-given talents and abilities when we are not serving Him. Of course, like any church, there are many, many opportunities to get involved. If you are musically gifted, we have a wonderful choir and special music program. If you are gifted with gift of gab, we have plenty of teaching opportunities. Maybe you are good at working with your hands, there is always plenty of things around our church that need fixing or maybe supporting one of our other ministries. Trust me! We can always find a place to plug you in.
