THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The 10 Commandments are found in the Bible's Old Testament at
Exodus, Chapter 20. They were given directly by God to the
people of Israel at Mount Sinai after He had delivered them
from slavery in Egypt:
"And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your
ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'
TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any
likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in
the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'
THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in
FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'
FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'
SIX: 'You shall not murder.'
SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'
NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'

THE ULTIMATE QUESTION
What shall I do to inherit eternal life?
You know the
commandments, “Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not
steal, do not bear false witness, do not defraud, honor your
father and mother.” If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving
ourselves, and the truth is not in us. Indeed, there is not a
righteous man on earth who continually does good and who
never sins. The wages of sin is death but the free gift of
God is eternal life through Christ Jesus. God demonstrates
His own love towards us in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us. He who knew no sin became sin for us
that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ
Jesus. If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and
believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the
truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through
Me. All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.
Repent therefore and be converted, that times of refreshing
may come from the presence of the Lord. Turn to Me and
be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there
is no other. Eternal life is found in knowing the only
true God, and Jesus Christ whom He has sent. Today, if you
hear His voice, do not harden your heart. For what does it
profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?
The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;
repent and believe in the gospel.

|HOW DO I BECOME
Here is a suggested prayer. This is not a ritual based on
specific words, but rather, a prayerful guideline for your
sincere step of faith.
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have
separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to
turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive
me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son,
Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the
dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to
become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart
from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help
me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In
Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”

HISTORY OF CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH
Calvary Baptist Church was organized on March 29, 1953,
originally, as Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, adopting
its present name in 1956. Its first building was the old
Seven Pines Baptist Church building, purchased in April 1953
and moved to Patterson Street, Highway 64, just east
of Highway 3. In the fall of 1953, Calvary joined Barnwell
Three acres of property was purchased on Highway 3 and the
building was moved to its present location in Januray 1956.
As membership grew, additional rooms were added to the church
building for Sunday School classrooms.
The new sanctuary was built in 1957 with members supplying the
labor. The old sanctuary was used for more sunday school
classrooms. The first parsonage was purchased in 1961. It was
Richardson Park, but was sold some years later.
The Educational Building and Fellowship Hall was built in
1971. After moving into the new educational building, the
old sanctuary was sold and torn down.
A house adjoining the property as its present location on
Marlboro Avenue was purchased in 1975 to become the
parsonage. During the later part of 1979 and early 1980, a
steeple and front porch were added to the sanctuary.
Remodeling of the present sanctuary was undertaken in 1981;
new ceiling installed, choir area moved behind pulpit, carpet
installed, light fixtures changed and walls wallpapered.
Twelve windows in the sanctuary were replaced with stain
glass windows in 1988. In 1989, construction was begun to
add eight new Sunday School rooms to the Educational Building.
In May 1991, 3.74 acres north of present property was
purchased. During the May 1996 Business Meeting, it was voted
to refinish pews, communion table, four flower stands,
three pulpit chairs, replace carpet, add seat and back
upholstery to choir seats, pad pew seats, new baptistery
drapery, new sound system, new shingles on all buildings
and purchase a new church sign. The remodeling was completed
by July 1996.
Calvary Baptist Church has had two members called into full
time Christian service, Frank P. Northcutt, pastoral ministry
and Gleen Creech, Foreign Ministry. Frank is now pastor at
Cherokee Avenue Baptist Church, Gaffney, South Carolina. He
is married to Toni and they have two children Rebekah and
Marshall. Glenn is now serving in Seoul, Korea with his
wife, Pam and their two sons, Harrison and Hayes.
Rev. Billy Mew began to write the history of Calvary
Baptist Church in November 1996. This history covered 45
years from March 8, 1953 through September 30, 1998 (end of
church year). Rev. Mew completed the history of Calvary
Baptist Church and a special service was held on March 28,
1999 at 3:00 pm for the signing and distribution of
"Reflections From Calvary." Window treatments throughout
the educational building and fellowship hall were given to
the church in 1999. In 2001, the church began and finished
construction on an Audio/Video Room. An Allen Digital Protege
Organ was given to the church in 2002.
Since the book was published in 1999, we have seen many
exciting things take place here at Calvary.

Library. (See schedule on the homepage for Library times.)
