The Great Commission of Matthew 28 tells us that we must be going into all the world, making disciples of persons in all nations. At Calvary Tabernacle, we aim to take that seriously by using whatever means we have to promote worldwide missions.
We currently support missionaries around the world, and we are sending members with teams that are supporting missionarys in forign fields. If you have any interest in serving on one of these teams or have questions about missions and your life, please see Pastor Hargrave for assistance.
One of the main instructions given to the leaders of the church was to be able to teach. Leaders are also commanded to equip the saints so that they can also carry out the work of the ministry, and this is exactly what our skilled teachers desire to do.
Coming to our services should be a time of worship and fellowship, but also of spiritual strengthening. Sermons are understandable but yet stimulating to the mind with respect to accurate doctrine and implication.
We strive to teach the Apostles doctrine as taught in the New Testament. We believe that when you visit Calvary Tabernacle your experience should be as the church of the book of Acts. Calvary Tabernacle is a Pentecostal church that will teach you the salvation message of Acts 2:38. The oneness message that Jesus taught in Mark 12:29 and the welcome message of Mark 8:34.
We invite you to come and learn the true word of God with us!
Harvest Crusade 2019, took place in April in Botswana, Africa.
I was privileged with being a part of the crusade team along with Kerry Sharp, Andy Gregg, and Brandon Pitts. The crusade was held just outside the capital city of Gaborone, and we were hosted by missionaries Mike and Lisa Long. On our first crusade trip in 2017, the village chief was among those who received the Holy Ghost. This year he was one of the 3 healed, and one of the 10 baptized in Jesus’ name. We also saw 8 others filled with the Holy Ghost for the first time, and several of those were children. I was excited to be able to travel with Brandon, and watch as God moved while he ministered to the children.
We had a few unplanned adventures while on this trip. One night as we were leaving for church, a storm came through with high winds, rain, and hail. Power was lost at the school where the crusade was taking place, and service was moved from the tent to inside one of the large class rooms. When power was restored we had lights, but music was acapella, and preaching was without a microphone. Still God moved in both the adult and children’s services and several received the Holy Ghost. On the day we were to leave Botswana, our vehicle was broken into at the mall, and several items stolen. As prayer went up, God stepped in. A man found one of the bags in a local deserted block where trash is dumped. While not all our property was recovered, the things we could not replace were all there, including my bible.
Thank you to the Long’s for being great hosts, and the church leadership in Botswana for allowing us to come. I always enjoy making the trip, and look forward to seeing what God does next year. None of these trips would be possible without the support and backing of our pastor and church family, thank you for all you do. To God be all glory, honor, and praise.
