We believe that God has given the Great Commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:19-20; Revelation 5:9-10).

In an effort to carry out this mission, Calvary Baptist Church has as its primary focus the ministry of global church planting.  We believe, as demonstrated in the book of Acts and the Epistles, that God has clearly chosen the church as His primary instrument in this age to make known “the manifold wisdom of God” (Eph. 3:10).  So, the thrust of our missions ministry, both within the United States and abroad, is to participate in the establishment of gospel-focused, Christ-centered, indigenous local assemblies led by trained national pastors.  Learn more about our Missions Philosophy here.


Calvary currently supports 23 missionary families in 15 countries around the world. We serve as a sending church for twelve of our families and as a sending agency for nine of our missionaries.  Due to the sensitive nature and security issues surrounding the ministry in which many of our missionary families are engaged, please contact Pastor Steve Sauers for specific information about our missionaries.

U.S. Church Planting
