About us

Organized in 1961, Calvary Baptist Church has a reputable history in the city of Melbourne. The church was organized to provide a place of worship to those living on the north side of the city that was known then as Eau Gallie. There was not much on the north side, and the church was considered “a country church in the middle of nowhere.”  Several families came alongside Pastor Clyde Green to help establish this new church. Pastor Green had already established several other churches, the one before, being in Cocoa, Florida. Under his leadership the church grew in the community, as the community grew around the church.  Within the next five years, three block buildings would be constructed, primarily by the members of the congregation giving of their money, as well as time and labor. The Lord was blessing, and souls were being reached for Christ. In 1972, with a new pastor leading the church, the Lord blessed, and the church built a new 800 seat auditorium. In 2003, the church purchased additional property that would allow room for growth and access to Parkway Rd.  Throughout these decades, the church has seen hundreds come to know the Lord, many more surrendered to full time Christian service. Many became pastors and missionaries. The church currently supports approximately 90 missionary families and mission works.

What We Believe

We are Baptistic in Doctrine and Distinctives.  
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God supernaturally inspired, that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, so that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.
We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, that He was crucified, died, and willingly shed His blood as a penalty for our sins, and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day.  He later ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is head of the Church and intercedes for believers. He is coming in the clouds to rapture His Bride the Church. He is later coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to the earth to set up His Millennial Kingdom.

We believe that a believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his Heavenly Father.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person, He is God, and possesses all the divine attributes. He indwells all believers, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and yielding to Him.

We believe in a Pre-Tribulation rapture. We believe that the Millennial Reign of Christ will occur after the seven year Tribulation Period.

We believe that the Gifts of tongues, prophesy, and healing, are not Gifts for the Church today. 

We believe that the will of God is for all to be saved by grace through faith. Therefore, there will be saved souls in Heaven from all denominations that trust Christ as Savior, and all the saved will be the Bride of Christ.
