CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH

OUR HISTORY

Calvary Baptist Church was founded by Pastor Ben Drysdale as an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church in 1981.  We started with a small group of people who came together out of a shared desire to create a different kind of church—a church that was consumed with taking the Gospel to all people both locally and around the world. Part of our journey has caused us to build and develop ministried that reach the people of Clay and Duval Counties.  Each week busses run to pick up families all over this region, we hold addiction recovery group meetings, minister to the homeless, take the gospel into the local jails and prisons.  Additionally, it has caused us to focus on sharing the Gospel all around the world through our missions giving and our ANOM ministry.

CHANGING LIVES

Calvary is the most welcoming church I have ever been to. Everyone there makes my family feel welcome.  This is a place where we've learned and grown in the Word of God for years.

I have been going to Calvary for a few years now and absolutely love the culture here. Everyone is on fire for Jesus and looking to spread their love.
