Who We Are

Calvary Church is not just another church. We began as a small group of ordinary people in Edna Gooden’s kitchen sharing a common goal to know Jesus and share His life transforming love with Kent County. That love has touched hundreds to thousands as we have reached out to meet the physical, social, mental and spiritual needs of our community for over sixty years.
As a multi-cultural community of people, we gather together to worship God, receive biblically-based yet culturally relevant messages to learn how to follow Jesus and become more like Him. We challenge each other to grow and be ready to take Jesus’ love in tangible ways to our neighbors, co-workers, the broken and disadvantaged, and the hungry and needy. As we do life together with Jesus in our community, lives and our culture are changed, thereby giving Jesus an opportunity to do extraordinary things through our ordinary lives.
We hope you will join us on this courageous journey together of being and making disciples with Jesus.
Calvary is affiliated with the Assemblies of God, a worldwide fellowship of Pentecostal churches. As part of the Assemblies of God, we uphold the 16 Fundamental Truths to which all Assemblies of God churches adhere.
