A Special Message from Pastor Lashley

Services Cancelled

With concern growing over COVID-19 and Illinois issuing a statewide stay-at-home order, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our services indefinitely. In the coming weeks, we will continue to monitor the situation, and we will resume our services as soon as possible.

Please be in prayer for our nation and the individuals experiencing both the effects of this illness and the financial hardship that will result from government efforts to defeat this disease.

Pastor's Pen

News and views of Pastor Dan Lashley.

Welcome to
Calvary Baptist Church

We would love for you to visit with us. Calvary Baptist Church has been a part of Belvidere and Boone County for more than 150 years, and the possibility of seeing God's Word meet the needs in your life still excites us.

Our people are friendly, and the atmosphere of our services displays a reverence for God. Our services are intended to bring people face to face with God's Word through traditional music and expositional Bible preaching.
