On July 3rd, 1955, at the first meeting of Calvary Church, six adults and eight children gathered in a home in Longmont to worship together. As Matthew 18:20 tells us, where just two or three gather in the name of Jesus, He is there in their midst. Although they have grown and the location has changed, by God’s faithfulness, people from all walks of life continue to gather at Calvary Church to worship Jesus together. He is alive and present in their midst!

Today, Longmont Calvary offers Bible-based teaching for all ages in a variety of settings and groups, intergenerational and diverse worship, a respected Christian Counseling Center, multifaceted ministries of compassion, English and Spanish speaking congregations, mentoring based youth ministry, and a long-standing commitment to Global Partners (missionaries).
