A Look Back

The organizing members met as a body for their first worship service September 23, 1984 in the church annex of the Loyalty Missionary Baptist Church of East Austin. After worship service those in attendance covenant among themselves to organize a new church under the Pastoral leadership of Rev. Sterling Lands, II, D. Div.

Twenty-three (23) people met the following Wednesday, September 26, 1984 and did organize the Greater Calvary Baptist Church with Dr. Sterling Lands, II as Pastor.

We were advised that we had to move October 2, 1984. God opened a door for us at 1176 Oakgrove, a building formerly occupied by the Greater Love Missionary Baptist Church. We moved on October 6, 1984. As our membership continued to grow, we realized that we needed a larger facility that would house our growing membership and our ministries. In May of 1990, we moved to 7517 Cameron Road.

It was at this location that our Abundant Life Learning Center was opened on June 10, 1990 and our Greater Calvary Rites of Passage was fully implemented on January 15, 1991.

As we continued to grow, the demand for a larger facility was upon us again and through the guidance and leadership of the Holy Spirit and the financial assistance of a member of the River Bend Baptist Church, we were blessed to purchase a facility at 6510 Berkman Drive.

On June 24, 1994, members led by pastor Lands marched from the Cameron Road location to our new location for the first Sunday Morning Worship Service in our new facility. We are debt free.
