Be Part of Our Incredible Future image

Though Calvary has been a vibrant church since the Gold Rush days, we are looking ahead with great anticipation. We will work to honor the past and include new ideas, some of which will look nothing like the stereotypical church.

Our mission to be a welcoming community, living the Christian faith in word and action.

We believe that Jesus said “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,”  he wasn’t simply referring to people sitting in church pews. Seeking to follow him into the world, we have an exciting vision and invite you to be a part of our growth in impact, depth and number:

Impact

We will focus mission service, influence and funds to help break cycles of poverty in San Francisco and the world.

Depth

We will create a culture of deep Christian relationships extending beyond Sunday. Calvary is a place where faith meets the realities of life that dominate our lives outside of the church sanctuary.

Number

New people are coming to Calvary every single week. Young and old, spiritual seekers and long-time church attenders–all in one community. It is an exciting time, and all are welcome!

Values

Love

Not just a warm and fuzzy feeling, but a deep selfless care for others

Inclusivity

Saying all are welcome, and living like we mean it

Grace

It’s not just a song, but forgiving and living as Jesus did

Hope

Reassurance that light overcomes darkness, and we can be a part of it

Spiritual Depth

We value expanding our minds, as well as nurturing our hearts

Justice

Challenging structures that oppress, and stepping up to be part of the solution

Curiosity

Because God isn’t done with us, and the church always needs new ideas
