OUR PASTOR

 

  • Pastor Brent Smith was born in Chelsea, Massachusetts on December 21, 1970.  He was raised to faithfully attend church, but it was not until a week after his 18th birthday that he finally came to confess his personal sin against God and came to know Jesus Christ as his Savior and LORD on December 28, 1988 during the Mississippi Delta Camp Meeting at Calvary Baptist Church in West Helena, Arkansas. He married his wife Leah on his 20th birthday in 1990. He surrendered to God's call on his life on June 26, 1990, and has served as Pastor, Music Director, and Youth Minister of different churches for over 30 years. Pastor Brent earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Social Science with a minor in Bible from Blue Mountain College in Blue Mountain, Mississippi in 1996, and holds a Masters of Arts in Theology degree from Southwest Bible College and Seminary. Brent and Leah have four children.

Statement of Faith

 

  • We believe in the verbal inspiration and authority of the scriptures.

  • We believe that God has preserved his word for English speaking people in the King James Version.

  • We believe that the Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God's plan and purpose in the ages.

  • We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the deity, the virgin birth, and bodily resurection of Jesus Christ.

  • We believe that salvation is by Grace alone.  The conditions for salvation are repentance and faith.

  • We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Justification establishes an eternal relationship that can never be broken.

  • We believe in the visible, personal, and pre-millenial return of Jesus Christ.

  • We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

OUR CHURCH

 

  • Calvary Bible Church was established in the fall of 1979 by a group of six families who had undergone a fruitless search for an independent, fundamental, KJV, Baptist church in Lewis County, NY.  Pastor Jenkins was called to come and arrived in the spring of 1980.  Church services began in the home of Rodney Mashaw, who served as pastor until Brother Jenkins fulfilled his teaching contract at a school in Pennsylvania. Services then moved to the present church property, however the church building was not errected at that time and so services commenced in the Victorian house in which the Jenkins lived.  By the spring of 1982, construction had begun on the church building that is used today.  Nearly all of the lot and building construction was done by church members. After 40 plus years with the church, Pastor Jenkins retired on November 30, 2020. On December 2, 2020, Pastor Brent Smith preached his first service on a Wednesday night, as the new pastor of Calvary Bible Church.
