" I love the people of CBC. Through good times and not-so-good-times they display the love of Jesus to me and my family.
I am so excited about the vision God has given CBC to reach our community for Christ. I cannot wait to see all the ways that He will use every worshiper to serve others and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I would love to have you visit our church. You will feel the love we share in Jesus Christ and recognize the servant’s heart of this church family. You will see we have a place for you to serve as well.
Come participate in our blended worship service and small-group Bible studies and be overwhelmed by the Spirit of God in worship. Stay for our monthly community day and enjoy fellowship, food, and the fun that comes from loving people and loving God."
Bro. Larry re-surrendered to ministry in 1997. He was ordained to the ministry in 1998 and has served in various ministry positions since that time. His first pastorate began in 2007 at Bethel Baptist Church in Buffalo, Texas. God called him to Calvary Baptist Church in September of 2014.
