Change The World

Calvary is not just a building or a weekly gathering for worship, but an active body seeking to change the world in Jesus’ name. Change the World


The mission of the Christian Church remains the same from generation to generation but the emphases of Christian groups vary, just as they did with the Methodist movement in 18th Century England.

In recent months Calvary United Methodist Church conducted a congregation-wise study seeking to recover the message and mission of Jesus. “Change the World” was a study designed to help each member grow as a disciple and take action to change the world.

Church is a verb

Calvary is not just a building or a weekly gathering for worship, but an active body seeking to change the world in Jesus’ name. As Christians we are seeking to:

Follow Jesus in his gospel mission
Welcome the stranger
Feed the hungry
Heal the sick
Rescue those in distress
Go boldly out into the world.


We are seeking to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world. We are seeking to change the world.

Calvary, a “mission” church

Our congregation has a long history as a “mission church,” serving God’s people not only in Nashville but literally around the world. If you feel called by God to act in service to others, join us as we seek to change the world.
