Michael and Karin Bush
We are so pleased that you have taken time to stop by our web sight. As the Senior Pastors of Calvary Christian Center, we are not ashamed to say that this is the greatest body of believers we have ever been a part of. I'm sure you can tell that there is absolutely no favoritism in this statement.
Heb 10:24-25 says, "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching." NIV
There is a real need for all christians to stay in fellowship with a local body of believers. In truth, we need Jesus, we need each other, and we need to be fulfilling God's prupose for our lives. Calvary is an exciting place where all of these factors come together in a warm family atmosphere. In essence, we want you to feel like you are at home when you worship with us.
