Calvary Church is an Assemblies of God church. The Assemblies of God was founded in 1914 in Hot Springs, Arkansas with 300 people at the founding convention. Today there are 13,004 churches in the U.S. with over 3 million members and adherents. There are more than 67 million members worldwide, making the Assemblies of God the world's largest Pentecostal denomination.
Our local church began as a home church in 1987. In October of 1989, Pastors Phil and Tina Cook opened the church in a small storefront in Hernando, FL. The ministry began to grow and just a few years later in 1993 it moved to its present location in Inverness. The original church building was constructed on a 5-acre piece of land. Since that time, the church has purchased an additional 10 adjoining acres for future expansion.
Who We Are
Our church exists to show people the love of our Heavenly Father, the grace of Jesus Christ, and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. We love people of all ages and backgrounds, especially families and children. We love serving people within our community and throughout the world. We’re here to help you grow in faith, no matter where you are in your life, and desire to see God's absolute best for you.
"Together, extravagantly love Jesus and selflessly love people."
"See people saved, healed, empowered, and launched into their calling.”
"Create environments where people are encouraged and equipped to carry the cross of Christ to their family, church, community, and the world.”
We are passionate about the love of Jesus.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you;”
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
Our focus is to reach the lost, rebuild relationships, encourage the community and grow families through relevant Bible teachings, exciting worship and family-based programs. Through the life of Jesus Christ and the love of our heavenly Father, we strive to create a safe place for you to come and worship Him.
We love our church.
"‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)
We love the people that fill our church. We want to help and grow the wonderful people in our community. We’re not here to judge people, but to love them through the different seasons of their life. We believe God has a plan and a purpose for everyone’s life and we believe in caring, loving and nurturing people through their journey. God is extravagantly for you and so are we.
