Thank you for connecting with Calvary Baptist Church on our website.  

God has blessed Calvary with nearly one hundred twenty year of Gospel Ministry to the people of Newport News.

Seventeen men have served God as pastors at Calvary Baptist Church for over the years. Memorable to many will be the long ministry of the Rev. Samuel W. Tatem, from 1964 until 1995. His legacy carries on through those called to ministry while he served as pastor. God’s Kingdom continues to be blessed because of his ministry.

In January 2019, Hampton Roads Fellowship’s pastor asked if the members of Calvary Baptist Church would be willing to gift our building to their congregation. Hampton Roads Fellowship is a Church Plant of the North American Mission Board, and has been meeting in the chapel space of Parkview Baptist Church; they have outgrown their space and are in desperate need of a building.

Their request was brought to the Deacons of Calvary Baptist Church and it was decided to present their request to the congregation. After much prayer, on April 7, 2019, we, the congregation of Calvary Baptist Church voted to give our building to Hampton Roads Fellowship.

On May 15, 2019, the congregation of Calvary Baptist Church voted to close Calvary Baptist Church. A Transition Team met on May 21, 2019, and picked a closing date of August 4, 2019, at which time we will have the congregation of Hampton Roads Fellowship join us for a joint Celebration of Calvary Service. During this service Calvary Baptist Church will officially had over the Deed to the Building to Hampton Roads Fellowship.

We rejoice in the Legacy of Calvary Baptist Church and invite you to come Celebrate Calvary on August 4, 2019.

In Christ,

Rev Jim Rizer, Pastor
