About Mt. Calvary

Mt. Calvary Independent Baptist Church is located in Asheboro, NC in the center of the state near Randolph Hospital and the NC Zoo. For directions you can click here.

Mt. Calvary is a Bible-believing, Fundamental, Independent Baptist Church. We believe that the King James Bible is God's preserved Word for man today, and it is the foundation for our doctrine and practice for Christians living in this world. We believe in "old fashioned preaching and singing". We still sing the old hymns of the Faith and our singers sing from their hearts. Our members always do their best to make sure any visitor that walks through our doors receives a genuine and warm welcome. We strive to have heart-felt and spirit-filled services with a family atmosphere to worship, in order to help us grow as a Christian and to help bring the lost to Christ.

Church History

On June 5, 1988 Mt. Calvary Independent Baptist Church had a humble beginning in the garage of Tommy and Jo Harris on Brook Drive. We moved to our present location on August 7, 1988, and on November 12, 1988 held a chartering service. Brother Neil Poole was called and ordained and became our first pastor. He and his wife, Sonya, and family have been serving Mount Calvary since 1988. We have remodeled and extended our church and also our Sunday School building. We are presently in a pay as we go building project for a Sunday School/Fellowship building.
