Calvary Temple Evangelical Church, NJ is a member of the Evangelical Church of Christ International, and was founded in July 1997. We started the church on the second floor of a house located at 242 Stuyvesant Avenue in Newark, NJ, with just a few members. Our membership grew at a steady pace, with an approximate total of over 50 families at the end of the first 4 years.
Due to some adverse conditions and unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to relocate a total of 4 times. As expected, we lost a few of our members because of the constant movement. However we did not loose heart or hope. Instead, we gave thanks for the vision that the Lord placed in our hearts and focused instead on His promises and His faithfulness. Through prayer and supplication the vision was strengthened and the desire for witnessing to lost souls became an even greater passion. To that end, we truly can say: "God is good!"
