Welcome WHAT TO EXPECT LATEST MESSAGES CURRENTLY VERSE BY VERSE THROUGH THE GOSPEL OF MARK SUNDAYS AT 10AM CONNECT MEETING THIS WEDNESDAY 6:00 PM at the church building Communion and Mark 4b this Sunday morning More Info and Directions ABOUT US Calvary Chapel Birmingham is affiliated with the Calvary Chapel stream of churches which were started by Pastor Chuck Smith out of the Jesus movement of the 70's. Calvary Chapel set themselves apart for being devoted to verse by verse teaching of the Bible, discipleship, and reaching the world with the love of Christ. There are Calvary Chapels all over the world now, and each has it's own flavor, yet we all agree on core distinctives such as the centrality of Jesus Christ, the supremacy of love, allowing God to build the church rather than man, being empowered by the Holy Spirit, and our absolute dependance on grace.

Communion LEARN MORE We believe that any person who believes in Jesus for eternal life as a free gift apart from works is born-again and a member of God’s family with all the rights and privileges of a son or daughter of the Creator. We believe this includes the opportunity to share in the Lord’s Supper. Therefore our communion time is open to any and all who have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. We partake in Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Agape Feast LEARN MORE On the second Sunday of each month, following morning service, we continue our fellowship with a shared meal, which we refer to as an Agape Feast. Everyone who is able to do so brings a dish or dessert to share with the church. Normally we have this meal together in the sanctuary, but sometimes we locate to a nearby park. Everyone is welcome to join in.
