Calvary Baptist Church
Should churches feel timeless or trendy? Malls are trendy. Churches should feel timeless.
With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture.
Welcome to Calvary Baptist Church! We’re a place that still feels like church. It won’t feel like a rock concert, comedy club, or motivational seminar. It’s not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago. It is timeless, as in 2000 years ago. It’s still church.
Dynamic, passionate preaching straight from the Bible still brings more lasting change than comedy routines, drama, or motivational talks. Come discover the benefit of Bible preaching.
Preaching conjures up a lot of different images in people’s minds these days. Boring. Dry. Irrelevant. Maybe you haven’t heard real Bible preaching! Preaching is simply a passionate and dynamic communication of an important and vital truth from the Bible. The preaching you hear will first of all be Bible-centered. We still believe in the absolute truth of the time-tested Word of God. Be sure to bring your Bible because you will need it. Second, it will be relevant and clear. You won’t wonder what the point was and you will be able to use it immediately. Last, it will be passionate and unapologetic. In a culture of “believe-whatever-you-want-regardless-of-whether-it-is-actually- true,” preaching might seem offensive to sensitive ears. Rather than water it down and mix it with entertainment, we still believe in that timeless, biblical practice called preaching.
Most church music amounts to dumbing down the lyrics and cranking up the volume to build interest. The hymns we sing still generate an attitude toward God that is anything but lifeless and boring.
Have you noticed that church just doesn’t sound like church anymore? The latest music trends rule the pew and no one really knows where that will stop. Isn’t it amazing how rock stations can make it promoting the oldies, but the modern church is now scared of the hymns? Even the oldies stations want the music pure, but if today’s church includes a hymn, it has to be reworked in modern rock to be accepted. We still believe the hymn is the most truthful and exciting form of music used in the church. Where it is appreciated, it is not boring. Even the hymnal is alive and well. Public schools know that if you want the most learning and participation, give the kids a book. Don’t get us wrong. We love new music and we like it to be loud. We just enjoy the volume coming from the congregation rather than from the guitar speaker. Come rediscover the excitement from the hymns.
Every American institution knows that being casual affects our attitude. While you won’t find a judgmental spirit here, you will find a place that still believes reverence is right for the presence of God.
American culture has become obsessed with casual. Having invaded every major institution including schools, businesses, and courtrooms, each of these have already lived to regret it. It is rare to find a serious classroom or courtroom that promotes “do as you want” and “drink as you please.” On the other hand, it is just as rare to find a church that doesn’t promote a casual or even careless approach in the services. We still believe that the presence of a Holy God deserves our attempt to express respect and reverence; not because it impresses Him, but because it affects our own hearts and attitudes. Reverence is a fading virtue in America, not because God no longer deserves it, but because churches no longer promote it. While we believe God deserves our best, we don’t try to police what that is. A heavy-handed judgmental spirit can often be worse than lack of reverence that is expressed in the casual approach to worship.
The rumor that masculine men hate church is greatly exaggerated. Come discover an environment where plenty of real men still believe God expects them to step up and provide strong, loving leadership in the church and in their families.
Look inside most churches today and one of the most notable vacancies is men. In particular, masculine men. We want you to know that’s not true everywhere. Calvary Baptist Church can be called a “man’s church” because of the generous involvement of men in every facet. We still believe men are expected to provide strong leadership within the church and their homes. Generations of that kind of leadership is one secret to America’s greatness. Feminism would have you think that masculinity demeans the woman, yet biblical masculinity is humble and compassionate and values a lady more than life itself.
Our culture’s experiments with the family have left the American home in a mess. We still teach the biblical roles for the family as the best answer and only hope for stable, fulfilled homes.
God doesn’t need the Top 40 or latest fads to be exciting. We still enjoy several timeless practices that stir the soul in a way that strobe lights and dancing in the aisles can never manufacture.
Since our beginning in 1987, Calvary Baptist Church has been contending for truth, not traditions or trends. We believe that since God’s ways are timeless, we should anchor our lives to His timeless Word.
Are new and trendy things bad? No. But they’re new. They haven’t been tested by time. New paths don’t always mean better paths. We’ve chosen to stick to the same old path that has worked for generations before us. We choose to be timeless.
