In December of 1997, Calvary Community Church was started when a number of families began meeting in a home in Oakley. In 2000, as the church grew, we began meeting regularly in the cafeteria at Liberty High School in Brentwood. One year later, we were able to purchase and pay cash for the property on Delta Road in Knightsen, and giving toward the construction of the church building was underway. Through God’s faithfulness and providence, the building plans were approved in 2008, at which time we had over $800,000 in the building fund. Shortly thereafter, we began construction. In April of 2010, we were able to change meeting locations to Knightsen Elementary School, which brought us closer to our eventual home. Since 2010, even though progress on the building has slowed; nevertheless, through the sacrificial time and labor of the brethren, we have been able to save on costs every step of the way. Now we are at a point, where we believe a pledge drive will enable us to complete the project and hold our first service in September 2017.
Our vision for the church building is simple. We seek to exalt Christ in His supremacy and sufficiency through disciple-making (Matt. 28:18–20), equipping, commissioning and sending church planters, missionaries and pastors (Eph 4:11–13), and sharing the Gospel with our local community in words and deeds of love (Phil 2:25–26; John 13:34–35). We desire that our church building would be a tool used by the Father to advance the kingdom of his beloved Son through the Holy Spirit’s empowering aid. As such, we don’t want the building to merely be a meeting house for our local flock, but a place mercy and love can be shown to our community, particularly the broken, the lost and the hurting (Jam 1:27).
