Dr. Ernie Moore started Calvary Baptist Church in 1976. As a successful business man, he felt that God was calling him to start a church. He sought out the help of Dr. Curtis Hudson who trained and helped plant this church out of his home in the Elizabethtown area. After locating a building, the church moved to Harrisburg. In the mid 2000's Pastor Ernie Moore felt that God was leading his ministry in another direction and his son took over as pastor until 2013. In 2013, Justin Thompson was named as the acting Pastor who continued his pastoral studies until August of 2017, when Pastor Justin was voted in as Senior Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church.
Since the founding of Calvary, this has been a place for people to come in a relaxed atmosphere to hear the Word of God preached. Calvary stands on a firm foundation and is a place where you belong and can grow. It has been a hospital for hurting souls since 1976. We haven't changed our doctrine because the Bible hasn't changed. We have kept true to the Word and we are excited about how God is going to use CBC in the future to reach the hurting souls around the Harrisburg, PA area.
