Calvary Baptist Church was started in June of 1967. Pastor Delford Day, our founding pastor, had become burdened to start a fundamental Baptist church in Chatfield after driving through Chatfield a number of years prior and realizing that no Baptist church existed. Meetings were first held in the Interstate Power Company Building. There were eighteen charter members that first Sunday in June.
Soon after the church began meeting, our current property, on Winona Street, was purchased and the basement of our present building was built in 1969. The upper portion (above the basement) was finished in 1976. Additions were added to the existing building in 1992 and the latest one in 2009.
Over the years, a total of ten men have served as pastor or interim pastor at Calvary Baptist Church. In November of 2015, Mike Gittins was called to be the lead pastor of Calvary Baptist Church.
