One of life’s most beautiful words is FAMILY. At Calvary Baptist Church in San Antonio, we take seriously the Bible’s teaching that Christians are the family of God and therefore brothers and sisters in Christ. As a “family of faith” we seek to worship and serve God, share the good news of the gospel message, and provide the spiritual environment necessary for the believer’s spiritual growth.
We invite you and your family to experience the joy and excitement of the Calvary Baptist Church family. Our church has gained a reputation as a friendly and caring fellowship, and we would welcome the opportunity to show you why. We would be honored to have you in any of our worship services or other activities. If you are looking for a church home, Calvary Baptist Church is the place for you!
