Calvary Baptist Chapel was started in September of 1977 by a call upon our Pastor and several individuals that knew of the need for an Independent Baptist Church in Tazewell. Rental of an older church building was available and after making arrangements to rent this property, Calvary opened its doors for ministry. While renting and holding services in this building for three years, the opportunity came to purchase almost an acre of land in the T.R. Barrett subdivision and a building was erected that would become the home of Calvary. Having been blessed of the Lord with growth in membership and the need to expand our facilities, a door was opened to purchase another five plus acres adjoining our property. This was to become Calvary’s newest building with new auditorium, sunday school rooms, office, pastor’s study, prophet’s chamber, children’s church and opportunity to reach out in ministry to our community in a greater capacity. We have been in this new facility since October of 2000.

We are an assembly of born-again, Bible-believing Christians, united together in order to establish a base of testimony for the proclamation of the Word of God, to win the lost to Christ, both at home and abroad, to edify the saved, and to earnestly contend for the faith by giving particular emphasis to the fundamentals of the faith.

The heart of our ministry and message has always been sharing the Love of God for mankind.
