Pastor: BRO. MARK MOORE
Brother Mark Moore was called by God to come and be the Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in May of 2011. Brother Moore and Vera came to us from Candor, North Carolina, where he was the Pastor of Center Baptist Church for over 10 years. When God opened the door for him to move to Calvary, he was remodeling the Church in Candor. He finished the remodeling with the dedication service and moved to Florida to lead Calvary Baptist Church. After his arrival, he stayed in a travel trailer and along with several men of the church, rebuilt the Parsonage, which sits next to the church. He and his wife, Vera, moved in the Parsonage in December, 2011.
The church has thrived under God's leadership through Pastor Moore. He is a dynamic, enthusiastic Pastor, who at times is called a "Bapticostal Preacher." He believes you should put your all in serving serving Jesus and that is done through the local Church. He has helped revive the Church's purpose in bringing lost souls to Christ and making better men and women of the members of the Church through pure Bible principles. He preaches from the King James Version only and his messages instructional for the Saved, for righteous living in this present evil world, and redeeming for the lost sinner, showing them a Savior who will set them free from the bondage of sin.
