The organizational meeting of what is now Calvary Baptist Church was held the beginning of July 1955 with ten people present. The first Sunday School was held on July 10, 1955 at the old Iaeger Elementary School as Iaeger Baptist Sunday School. The charter members were Emma Hampton, Mrs. H. L. Bailey, Mr. & Mrs. R. B. Cook, Mr. & Mrs. J. A. Hatcher, Mr. & Mrs. E. L. Liddle, Mr. & Mrs. E. P. Pauley and Mr. & Mrs. P. A. Wisler. Reverend Irvin Muncy became the first pastor.
By October 1955 membership had grown to 39
and the name was changed to Iaeger Baptist Chapel. In January 1956 the final name change was made to Calvary Baptist Church. On Sunday, March 3, 1957 at 10:00 a.m. the first service was held in our current building. A 50th Anniversary Celebration was held on October 9, 2005.
