Our History

Calvary was started in 1973 by Pastor Jim Carlson under the auspices of the Baptist General conference, now called, Converge Worldwide.  Within six years the church grew to 275 people. God providentially worked to help them secure a piece of property and build a three floor facility.  The church has had five different pastors throughout the decades with three different interim pastors.
