“Nᴇᴡ Sanctuary”
In 2019, The Northern Bahamas experienced the worst Hurricane September 2nd.
Calvary Temple’s Sanctuary was not speared the wrath of the storm.  After 80% damage to our church and school building we have finally completed our renovations, almost 2 years to this date.
We are thankful to our partners, and others listed below who have helped us in big ways to get back on our feet.
Convoy of Hope (Springfield, MO)

May the Lord continually bless you all for your support during this most difficult time.

Calvary, where we celebrate JESUS!

     At Calvary Temple, we believe in allowing the Holy Spirit to have His way in our services. This means our services are not fixed, we are open to what the Holy Spirit wants to do, because it is about His agenda and not ours.
     There is no impact, change or transformation without the presence of the Holy Spirit.
     We are a thriving, dynamic, spirit-empowered congregation.  We integrate our culture into our worship, making it vibrant, with a Bahamian flavour.
     We are diligently pursuing God, so that His glory can fill His House once again.

The church belongs to Jesus! He will build His church and the kingdom of darkness will not and can never defeat it.

The church of Jesus is triumphant!  A church called to release the power of God in the earth.  As you worship with us, you will experience the power of the risen Lord who came to set the captives free, heal the sick, raise the dead, and cause blind eyes see.

We declare that Glory is Here!

Haggai 2:7b-9

.and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts.
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, declares the Lord of hosts.

The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, says the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, says the Lord of hosts.



To Reach the Lost, Disciple the Nations, and Release God’s people to take the gospel to the ends of the world.


Calvary Temple is a “Kingdom” minded, Word centered, family oriented church that is dedicated to the worship and praise of God.


We declare that God’s Glory is in the house according to Haggai 2:7-9; for the purpose of reaching the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ with signs and wonders following; as we go to the nations releasing God’s love to the ends of the world. 
We are Kingdom Minded, Word Centered, Family Focus, dedicated to the worship and praise of God.

Mission Outreach

We believe that the command of Jesus is just as relevant today as it was when Jesus first gave the command to his disciples.  As the population of the world is increasing the need to go and preach the gospel, and to teach and to disciple people will become increasingly more challenging. However, the advance in technology makes it even easier, but the going, and doing is expedient because this is the purpose of the church (the called out ones), and we must do it until Christ returns.

We believe that we are to go, and if we cannot go, we must send others.  We support outreaches locally and internationally. Each year we participate in international mission outreach by going to a country where a new door is open.  This mission trip is supported by the church and we would like your support as well.  Pray about making a donation to support the gospel being taken to the ends of the world.

We are also actively involved in reaching people in our own communities every Saturday and one time per week we reach out to the sick through Hospital Evangelism.
