From The Pastor
Hello, and welcome to The Calvary Baptist Church Website! I'm Pastor Jeremy Hull.
Let me begin by inviting you to any of our services which you can find on this site. Service times and dates are listed...we would love to see you!
I was raised in Church from the day I came into this world, but it wasn't until the age of 14 that I really began to understand what "being a christian" meant. It was during Revival services at Olive Grove Baptist Church that the Lord sent conviction and I repented of my sins! The Lord saved me that day and I've NEVER been the same!
Shortly thereafter, the Lord begin to deal with me about Preaching the Gospel. I did pray about preaching and even studied in that direction but never told anyone what the Lord wanted me to do. After a few months, I decided that it wasn't something I could do. The years passed and soon I was in my early 20's and completely out of the Will of God. To my shame, I had even stopped attending Church. My wife regularly asked me to go with her but I usually just said no. One Sunday morning, she asked, and out of the blue, I decided to go. That morning we attended Morris Memorial Baptist Church of Casar N.C. Dr. Chris Emory is the Pastor there and when he stepped behind the pulpit...well, let's just say the Lord used His Word to show me my GREAT sin! I fell on an Old Fashioned altar in repentance and re-dedicated my life to His Service.
A few years went by and the Lord began to deal with me about Preaching once again. This time I ran TO Him! In 2007 I surrendered to God's Call and made my calling public. Through the years, God has provided open doors to preach and for that I am so thankful!
Not long after He called me to preach, the Lord put a burden in my heart for the Western NC area. Some people thought/think that's odd, and to be honest, I did as well at that point. Time would soon reveal God's Divine Purpose. It was July 11th 2015 when I first spoke with someone from Calvary Baptist Church. The Lord had started working on both ends...both my end and the Church's end. A mutual friend made the connection and I scheduled with the Church to come up and Preach. On our first trip, I told my wife that this was the place! I am honored to say that Calvary Baptist Church voted me in as Pastor and on November the 8th 2015, I stepped into the pulpit as God's Man for this Church! I thank the Lord for what He has done for My Church, My Family and myself...to God be the Glory...Great things He has done!
I would like to take a moment and say how thankful I am to be a part of such a wonderful Church! Yes, we have our problems like every other Church, but I believe with all my heart that the people of Calvary Baptist Church are the most loving and kind people in this world! I'm excited to see what the Lord will do, both for us ,and with us in the days ahead. To our Church, I would say...just keep on keeping on, be faithful, and watch the Lord work! Love ya'll!
