Calvary Bible’s mission statement is to glorify God by making disciples of all nations.  At Calvary Bible Church we desire to see church and family work together in the discipleship of our children. We hold the Biblical teaching that parents are the primary faith trainer and teacher of their children, and the church supports and supplements a parent’s work. 

Family Faith Milestones

This is a discipleship strategy, not a program;
a change in thinking and doing, not just adding. 
It is a way of life for a family, not something to add on to our way of life.

Milestones Defined

“An event, preceded by a period of instruction from parents which celebrates
a spiritual development point in a child’s life.”

- Jim Weidman, Spiritual Milestones: A guide to Celebrating Your Children’s Spiritual Passages.

...You shall love 

the Lord your God 

with all your heart 

and with all your soul 

and with all your might. 

And these words that I command 

you today shall be on your heart. 

You shall teach them diligently 

to your children...

Deut. 6:4–7 (ESV)
