Bible Way to Heaven...
1. Realize there is none GOOD (Romans 3:10 - As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.)
2. See yourself as a SINNER (Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.)
3. Recognize where SIN came from (Romans 5:12 - Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all, men for that all have sinned.)
4. Notice God's PRICE on sin (Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.)
5. Realize that Christ DIED for you (Romans 5:8 - But God commended His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.)
6. Take God at His WORD (Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.)
Take GOD at His Word and claim His promise for your SALVATION - Romans 10:9-11
"That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed."
Now pray, confess that you're a sinner, ask God to save you, and receive Christ as your SAVIOR.If you have more questions or need further assistance in this area, please don't hesitate to contact us...
How Well do you know the Bible?We have a sincere desire that people have an oppotunity to know what the Bible proclaims. The average American spends over 30 hours a week watching TV, while not even 1 hour reading the Bible. Life is full of questions needing answers. The Bible contains everything we need to know this side of heaven. It is God's instruction manual to his creation.
- "Why does God allow terrible things to happen?"
- "Did man really evolve from apes?"
- "What happens after we die?"
- "How can I know I'm going to heaven for sure?"
As for the futureThe Bible reveals the answer to such questions as:
- "Is the nuclear bomb referred to in the Bible?"
- "Why does the Bible say that heart attacks will increase in the last days?"
- "Is there any connection between the UPC symbol and the mark of the beast (666)?"
- "What was the significance of Israel regaining their land again in 1948 after 1900 years?"
- "What Bible significance do the USA, Russia, China, and Israel play in the end of the world?"
- "What about the earthquakes and crazy weather patterns?"
- "What about the Bible and the AIDS plague?"
- "What part does the computer or satellite TV have in Bible prophecy?"

The official Bible of Calvary Baptist Church is the King James Version. While no one will check to see what version you have at the door, it is the only Bible we use in both preaching and teaching. It is also the only Bible we encourage our people to read and study. This is an issue far too big to get into here. Yet, to summarize we use the King James Bible for the following reasons: (These are just a short list of reasons)
We believe in providential preservation of the scriptures. This means that God not only revealed his word to the writers and inspired them to write down what He revealed without error, but God has also been busy and is still busy preserving His Word from generation to generation. Thus, the common man and woman can have a trustworthy copy of God’s Word without having to be an expert in Greek. We do not believe the King James translators were inspired. We do not believe that the entire world will answer to the King James Bible. We do not believe that the King James Bible corrects the originals. However, we do believe that God has preserved His Word in tact for the English speaking people through the King James Bible.
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever (Psalm 12:6-7).
While it is often said that the modern versions simply make the word of God easier to understand, in reality most often the changed wording also changes the meaning or hinders the meaning. Just one example out of a multitude is the frequently mentioned use of “Ye, Thee and Thou.” The new versions simply replace these with “you and your.” Yet, by doing so the meaning of the text is destroyed because the three pronouns mentioned above are used for a specific purpose. They are employed to convey the singular-plural distinctions in the second person forms of pronouns and verbs. This distinction is quite lost when “thou, thee, and thy” are replaced with “you and your.” “Thee and Thou” are singular, while “Ye and You” are plural. This is lost when you replace them all with “You and Your.”For example:
- Exodus 4:15. "THOU shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth; and I will be with THY mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach YOU what YE shall do." The THOU, THY refer to Moses, but YOU refers to the nation which would be instructed by the spokesman Aaron. If you simply use “you and your” it is impossible to tell who is being spoken to in the text.
- Exodus 29:42. "This shalt be a continual burnt offering throughout YOUR generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD where I will meet YOU, to speak there unto THEE." The YOU, referring to the children of Israel, is explained in the following verse, but THEE refers to Moses, who had the holy privilege of hearing the words of God directly (Leviticus 1:1).
- John 3:7. "Marvel not that I said unto THEE, YE must be born again." The message was spoken to an individual, Nicodemus, but the message referred to all men. The same phenomenon occurs in verse 11, where we read: "I say unto THEE ... that YE receive not our witness."
