To honor God by bringing lives into harmony with Him and one another through discipleship, evangelism, worship, ministry and fellowship!
Of myself I can do nothing, but through Christ who strengthens me, I can do all things.
On October 5, 1980, in the home of the late Reverend Alton Johnson Moore and his lovely wife Nealena, twenty-two soldiers for Christ organized as a church. After great cogitating, a name was created for this our new establishment, "The New Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church".
The New Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church was officially organized on October 12, 1980 at the New Guide Missionary Baptist Church, located at 3521 Dennis St. Houston, Texas under the leadership and guidance of Reverend Joe P. Hubbard, Sr. who served as moderator along with the late Reverend John Richardson, Pastor of the First Outreach Missionary Baptist Church.
Worship services were held in the home of Pastor and Sis Moore’s for approximately two months, when the Lord blessed us with our present facilities. Reverend Moore was officially installed as pastor of the flock on April 26, 1981. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit the newly formed church grew both spiritually and numerically. Through December 1999 there were 314 members who united, 143 baptism's 16 new births, 5 ordained deacons and 3 ordained ministers, the major purchased of four properties, and the organization of The New Mt Calvary Ministries, Community Development Corp. Inc. But God was not through with us yet.
Entering into a new millennium January 1, 2000, the Lord called our founding Pastor Alton J. Moore was called from labor to rest. What devastation we thought we would face going forward with not Shepherd in place. Who would lead the flock with the Christian values and morality as did our last. So we begin our search outside for a new leader, but God had already begun his work on the inside. March 2000, just three months later God raise up one of our own Deacon Ronald Smith confess his call to the ministry of our Lord and Savior. On April 21th Rev. Smith 1) preached his first sermon 2) was called to pastor the church and 3) ordained as Pastor. With man, things seem impossible, but with God all things are possible. And God is not through with us yet.
God answered the prayers of His people and appointed the son of our late pastor begins his reign with the same spiritual tenacity that he himself had been taught by both a spiritual father and his earthly father. God sent a Pastor who had a heart for the people, a longing for ministry, and the capacity to preach, teach and to reach. In just a short time God, through the leadership of Pastor Smith, had taken the Church back to the basics and a higher level of ministry. Most recently two new services were added to our worship schedule, eight o’clock worship on Sunday morning and for one hour a noon day service “Wednesday in the Word”. Because of our great leadership here at Calvary, God has added numerous members, countless baptisms, the purchase of a 25 passenger bus, and additional van, the purchases of 4 additional properties, one of which is a 3600 sq. ft office/educational building, had provided a place of refuge for those affected by both Hurricanes Katrina and Ike, and have become engaged in the vast society social media that is used as tools to win souls to Christ.
Thirty-four years can only be appreciated by offering celebration through prayers and praise to our God almighty. Through the visionary leadership and community concerns of our current pastor Dr. Ronald S. Smith Sr., for this church, God is not through with us yet.
Entering our thriry-fifth year has been a continued blessing. Final payment was made on the property located at 6050 Westover St, rendering us free and clear and sole owner of said property. The entrance foyer and west wing have been updated, and a small reading area was added for members convience near the west wing. We have purchased and placed five tv monitors that aids in our worship services. And finally four computer was purchased for the offices. Where we put a period, God places comma, Beacuse He is not through with us yet. We the members are now excited to see what God has for our future as we continue to honoring by God by bringing lives into harmony with Him and one another.
