About Calvary

Mission Statement

Calvary Baptist Church is a Christ-Centered, caring church family in the center of our community. Our mission is to love God and each other, and to share with others the Good News of Jesus Christ as we worship, teach, serve and nurture spiritual growth.

History 

Since our founding in 1875, Calvary Baptist Church has always been “a different kind of Baptist church.” We’ve changed names and location several times throughout our more than 130 year history, but we haven’t changed our core values. Calvary is faithful to the practices which we believe make us unique.  We embrace women in ministry, encourage discussion and education among members and in the community, remain committed to the downtown Lexington area, and live missions.  All of these characteristics set Calvary apart.  We hope you will soon join us for worship at Calvary and experience the Calvary difference for yourself! 

Affiliations

Calvary Baptist Church is affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the Kentucky Baptist Fellowship, and the Elkhorn Baptist Association.
