The History of Calvary Christian Church
During the mid 1970s, this non-denominational church was located at 60 I Street, S.E., Washington, D.C., where it temporarily shared facilities with another congregation. In 1977, Rev. Robert M. Green became its new pastor, succeeding its former, Pastor John Petrocelli. With Pastor Green at its helm, Calvary Christian Church became Calvary Christian Church, Inc., with Pastor Green as its founder and president.
From day one, Pastor Green vehemently preached the life-changing Word of God, and many were saved, healed, and delivered while the church remained at its I street location. But as time progressed, the church moved on. And, for a short time, services were held in a downtown hotel, while the congregation believed God for a building of their own! Speedily, the Lord answered their prayers, and led them to 909 11th Street, S.E., Washington, D.C. Although this structure was in much need of repair, renovations were soon underway! And, before long, what was once a rundown business establishment, quickly became a beautiful house of God! Moreover, in just a few short years, God enabled this congregation to purchase their new edifice. And, on March 4, 1998, the mortgage against Calvary Christian Church was “paid in full,” and burned, in a glorious ceremony of praise!
Since its inception, Calvary Christian Church has ministered to its community, and beyond, via: biblically-sound preaching/teaching; a street witness ministry; sick and shut-in visitations; Youth Connection services; Faith Family programs; marriage information classes; Gospel Jubilee song services; missionary offerings; food, clothing, and toy donations; holiday programs/plays; and more.
…upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
St. Matthew 16:18
