Calvary is an Assemblies of God church in a rural town on the East end of Nevada. The City of Ely (population 4,000+/-) is three and a half hours from any major city in every direction! Each of our leaders are living out a specific assignment to this community.
To bring prosperity and freedom to our community
To equip believers to carry the presence, character and culture of God into every sphere of influence.
- Excellence in our work
- Gentleness, love and honor in our interactions
- SUPERNATURAL solutions to NATURAL problems
- Always ready to give an answer for the Hope that is IN us.
Everything that takes place at Calvary is built upon these three things we hold as our foundational values. Freedom, Love, and Community. We live out our lives knowing the Holy Spirit brings freedom and we now are enabled by grace to walk in total freedom in all areas of life.
All of our teaching and equipping for our personal ministry is founded on knowing the Word of God as absolute truth and by practically living it. Many things in the church are negotiable, but preaching truth directly from the Bible is not one of them. We place a high value on the authority of The Bible.
Community at Calvary is vital. First, as a united body of believers, we stand under the vision God has given our Pastors. We work together to protect our leaders and the vision God has given them for Calvary. We hold dear all relationships that we make and esteem every one of them in a culture of honor. We view each member of Christ's body as an extension of himself. We sharpen and support one another by encouraging maturity in everybody's function in the church. Everything we do is founded upon relationship, our relationship with God first and our relationships with one another.
Our Foundational Values
2 Corinthians 3:17 - For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Romans 8:38-39 - And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 4:1-6 - Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all, in all, and living through all.
