“But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere-in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8 NLT
We are called to GO with the message of Jesus Christ. At Calvary Church, we GO both globally and locally.
Our "Jerusalem" is Annandale/Fairfax/Metro DC, the areas local to us. We are called to make our first mission field our home mission field. Missions' starts at home in our families, our neighborhoods, on our jobs, and in our schools. Our church’s geographic mission field is within a five-mile radius of where we are located. To accomplish this, we partner with local schools and local non-profits to help be the hands and feet of Jesus and share the message of the gospel with our neighbors. As a local church, it is our joy to engage our community and create a place where all feel welcomed and loved.
Our "Samaria" is the regions and states around us. Through the Church of the Nazarene, we participate in Work & Witness Trips, Crisis Care Kits.
Our "ends of the earth" is the globe. We seek to go global with the message of Jesus Christ. This call to missions is achieved as we give and go to the ends of the world. Our local Nazarene Missions International (NMI) ministry helps us stay connected to our global mission efforts through monthly meetings, opportunities to support missionaries through Faith Promise (our annual pledge towards missions), and yearly mission trips.
