General Info:
New Calvary Baptist Church is proudly entering its 59th year ( founded in July, 1949 ) of service to its members, community and residents in Detroit and the Greater Metropolitan Detroit area. New Calvary has sought to exist and engage in ministry by a simple motto: To serve, rather than be served. Known throughout the city of Detroit, the state of Michigan and the nation, New Calvary has been deeply engaged in the work of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, since its inception in 1961. Prior to 1961, New Calvary and its founding pastor, Rev. Joseph T. Thomas were part of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc With the death of Pastor Thomas, Rev. Dr. Charles William Butler was called to the pastorate of New Calvary in 1962 and served for the next thirty-four years. During that time Dr. Butler transitioned the church into the newly formed Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc and also became president of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc Two years after the retirement of Dr. Butler ( 1998 ), Rev. Dr. Michael C.R. Nabors was called to pastor New Calvary Baptist Church. Dr. Nabors served as president of the Michigan Progressive Baptist Convention from 2002-2004. He is entering his tenth year as pastor of New Calvary. During that time, five persons have been licensed to the Christian ministry ( Donald J. Beasley, Ms. Johnnie Rivers, Bernard Robinson, Deborah Key and Gloria Moore ) and four have been ordained into the Christian Ministry ( Stephen Feagin, Richard Patterson, Donald Beasley and Franklin Ruff ). The church has also had one student intern, Genetta Hatcher. New Calvary is located in southeast Detroit, where its ministry has provided service from the same corner for fifty-eight years. Current members are residents of Detroit, Southfield, Grosse Point Park, Belleville, Bloomfield, West Bloomfield, Rochester Hills, and other suburban towns near the city. In recent years, the demographics in the city of Detroit have markedly changed. Thus, various components of the church have also changed. In an effort to ensure that the ministry of New Calvary was and is meeting the needs of the area, it became evident that an update on the Church Profile was necessary. With the development of this document, we are hopeful and determined that New Calvary's mission shall continue the work of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to spread the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. Our earnest plea is that our community may be transformed as God grants us a spirit for building the Kingdom of God, where we are, to His glory! Our constant and heartfelt prayer is for God to bless New Calvary to be a thriving, life-transforming, intergenerational fellowship with an international message for an interfaith world. It is our constant and abiding belief that what we do on the tiny corner of Concord and Stuart, has significant ramifications for our community and world.
