Calvary Baptist Church

An Independent Baptist Church in Mount Maunganui, Tauranga


Calvary Baptist Church

Every strong church must be centered around the Lord Jesus and be grounded in the essential truths of GOD's Word. While we may take a conservative approach to worship we always aim to be a Christ centered, GOD honouring church and we aim to teach clearly from the Word of GOD.

About us



We took over full time ministry at Calvary in 2015 and we are so grateful for the increased opportunities the LORD has given us over the years to serve Him and we are especially blessed to called into His ministry. Our greatest desire now is to see new converts coming to know Christ and to see born-again believers growing deeper in their faith and giving GOD all the glory for their Salvation. 

If you need to speak either of us please call Dean or Lupe Carter on 0275664990 or email the church on the contacts page.

Our Sunday Services

One of the key purposes of the church is to conduct services for the worship of GOD, and ultimately to exalt the mighty and the precious name of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus. We aim in these service to be caring and accomodating and reflect Christ's love in all that we do. That is why we would love you come and join us this Sunday. Our service times are:

  • Morning Service 10am

  • Evening Service 6pm

In all of our services we love to spend as much time as possible in the Word. In addition to this we generally sing the Great Hymns of the Faith or choruses and we spend time in prayer. We also take up an offering Sunday mornings but visitors should not feel compelled to have to give, only as the Lord directs. We also have Communion or the LORD's Table in the evening service on the first Sunday of every month. We also believe in the ordinance of baptism and will conduct Baptismal Services as the occassions arise. 

Sunday School

Our Junior Church or Sunday School caters for all age groups and Junior church runs at the same time as the normal service times so that parents can enjoy the morning worship service while their children attend Junior Class. If you are interested in your children joining one of our morning classes just simply come along to the church and we would love your children to join in.

Wednesday Prayer Meeting

We meet midweek each week to pray collectively as a group. The prayer meeting starts at 7:30pm. We will sing some hymns and share a short message from GOD's Word before we break into groups to pray. We welcome new people to our prayer group as we believe prayer is an essential part of our new life in Christ.
