We want to create a church that makes a difference in the High Country. Unfortunately, many people are more familiar with what the church is against, rather than what the church is for.


We want Mt. Calvary Baptist Church to be known by what we are for.


We are for Banner Elk families, couples, singles, students, and children. We are for the young and the old. We are for the Neighborhood, the Nations and the Next Generation. We are for the High Country.


We know the message of the church can be polarizing. But we are always for people. All people. Even people who do not agree with us. The reason we are for the people is because God is for them. The most famous verse in the Bible clearly states this: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but will have eternal life.”


We simply want to share the news that God is for them, and we are too. Our desire is to create a church where you can feel safe to attend and to invite your friends, family, and neighbors to experience this life-changing truth.


We want the High Country to know that we will be here for them. And our message is the best news anyone can ever hear: God is with you and God is for you.
