About Our Church
Who We Are
We’re an independent, autonomous, Bible-believing, Christ-centered, old fashioned body of believers praying and pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, the shedding of His blood on the cross of Calvary, His resurrection, and that He is returning in the future. We believe in the triune nature of God, that although he is one God, He is manifest in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe all of humanity is born in a sinful state, and must come to Jesus Christ alone for salvation. We believe in the saving, cleansing power of his blood which he shed for the remission of sins of all mankind. We are a dispensational body of believers, believing in the pre-tribulation, pre-wrath, pre-millennial rapture of the Church.
We believe God has preserved his perfect word in the Authorized King James Bible without reservation or exception, and hold to it as our final authority on faith and practice.
We observe the two ordnances the Lord commanded the church to practice: the Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. These ordnances are observed in obedience to our Master and Saviour, and they hold no mysticism, nor are they required for Salvation.
We maintain the goal first and foremost of bringing glory and honor on the name of our God and his Son, the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We aim to be a lighthouse to Fayetteville and Lincoln County, Tennessee, reaching the lost souls within our local community, and beyond through missions.
Brother Johnny was raised in the Tennessee Valley, and accepted Christ as his savior at the age of 9. Ten years later, he surrendered to the Lord’s call to preach, and went on to serve as youth pastor at Rice Baptist Church in New Market, Alabama. Brother Johnny accepted the pastorate at Calvary in 2001 and resides here in Lincoln County with his wife Darlene and daughter Lauren.
