Calvary Independent Baptist Church

We want to thank everyone for attending services this weekend. We also want to ask everyone to please continue praying for our schools, teachers and students, and for our nation as a whole.

Sunday morning’s service included a message from John 8:12-21 about how believing the truth must precede knowing the truth. With a heart of unbelief, one will continue to walk in darkness and never understand the things of God. With a heart of belief, one can walk in light and understand the work God has done in the past, what God is doing today, and also the things God will do in the future.

Today, those who are saved and in the body of Christ through believing the gospel are given an awesome opportunity to be stewards of the mysteries of God. These mysteries include God having been manifest in the flesh, the future prophesied grace and forgiveness of sins unto the nation Israel, God placing both Jew and Gentile into one body through the gospel, the Rapture and the fact that Christ is in us today.

All these things and more were called a mystery; yet today, through divine revelation, we are to know these things and faithfully teach these things to others. What about you today, do you go to the Bible with a believing heart, wanting to know the things of God?

Sunday night was Family Night at Calvary. It included several songs, then a message from James 1:17, John 8:12 and John 1:1 about the many wonderful things God gives us every day that we often take for granted.

We have many blessings living here in the United States of America that we could not have in many other places in this world. We choose to walk in darkness when we ignore giving God the glory for the blessings we enjoy daily.

We should remember that God created the world and all things therein, and instead of taking them for granted, we should make sure we give God the glory and praise he deserves for being such an awesome God.

We want to invite you to come and visit with us this Sunday. We are located south of Clanton, just past Dollar General, right off U.S. 31 on Fulmer Drive.

Sunday school at 9 a.m., Children’s Church and adult worship services at 10 a.m., Sunday evening service at 5:30 p.m. and Wednesday service at 6:30 p.m.
