Calvary History

Calvary's History


In 1926,  The Clarke, Hawkins and Edwards families started a branch Sabbath School in their own homes in the city of Bridgeport, CT.  On December 2, 1933 the group was organized into Calvary Seventh-day Adventist Church with Pastor Wellington Clarke as the first pastor. 

As the congregation grew, the church had to move from one location to another.  The congregation kept growing and so, under the leadership of Pastor Charles Eaton, and Pastor Singleton, Conference President, the land where the church now stands was purchased. With much sacrifice by each member, Calvary Seventh-day Adventist Church was completed in 1966 and the congregation was able to move into their new and current house of worship. 


Our Identity

The universal church is composed of all who truly believe in Christ. In the last days in a time of widespread apostasy, a remnant has been called out who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. This remnant announces the arrival of the judgment hour, proclaims salvation through Christ and heralds the approach of His second advent. This proclamation is symbolized by the three angels of Revelation 14 and coincides with the work of judgement in heaven and results in a work of repentance and  reform on earth. Every believer is called to have a personal part in this worldwide witness.


Our Mission

The mission of Calvary Seventh-day Adventist Church is to call all people to become disciples of Jesus Christ and proclaim the everlasting gospel embraced by the three angels’ messages (Revelation 14: 6-12), and to prepare the world for Christ’s soon return.


Our Method

We are guided by bible and the Holy Spirit. Calvary Seventh-day Adventist Church pursues this mission through christ-like living, communicating, discipling, teaching, healing and serving.


Our Vision

In harmony with Bible revelation, Calvary Seventh-day Adventist Church see as the climax of God’s plan the restoration of all his creation to full harmony with his perfect will and righteousness.


About Seventh-day Adventists 

Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons--the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit--make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
