Founded in 1975, Calvary Chapel St. Petersburg began as a small gathering of believers in a living room. Over the years, we moved to various locations, including a warehouse and a shopping center, before settling into our current building, a former Super Walmart. Our journey reflects our growth and the enduring commitment of our community.

We exist to be a movement of the gospel of Jesus for all people. Our mission is to advance this gospel through gospel-centered teaching, community, service, and multiplication. We believe in the transformative power of Jesus’ teachings and aim to share His message of hope, forgiveness, and love.



We are dedicated to teaching the Bible verse-by-verse. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the scriptures by exploring both the Old and New Testaments.

We believe in the transformative power of God’s word and its ability to bring hope, change, and guidance to our lives. Our teachings focus on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, emphasizing His message of love, forgiveness, and redemption. Join us each week as we dive deep into the Bible and discover its relevance for our lives today.


The disciples of Jesus were commanded to share His teachings with the people of the nations. They were empowered by the Holy Spirit and traveled to share the news of Jesus’ kingdom, His forgiveness of our sin through the cross, His resurrection and ultimately the defeat of the enemy. This news, the gospel, brought hope, change, and power over the darkness.
Community is a place where people gather as the church to sing, hear God’s word, and to seek to work out the things we are learning in small group settings. These are places where we can reflect and participate in what it means to be a community marked by the gospel of Jesus.
As we look to the future, we look at the work of the church in planting other churches, partnering to develop church leaders, and teaching Jesus’ commands by bringing them to the heart of people throughout the world.
Service is looking for practical ways to minister to people because of the gospel. Whether this is through bringing a meal to someone, helping them practically around in their home, or finding ways to serve the community, the gospel frees us to invest into others through acts of service.

New to Calvary? Here's what you can expect:

First and foremost, we’re all about Jesus. We believe Jesus Christ is our risen Savior, and worth following with everything we have. More on what we believe here.
We believe consecutive, expositional preaching and teaching through the books of the Bible should be central to the life of the local church. All of our weekend services are the same and will focus on the New Testament. Our mid-week service will focus on the Old Testament. If you have children, it will be helpful to arrive early to get them checked into Calvary Kids.

Children and youth are incredibly important to us here at Calvary.

The mission of our Calvary Kids program is to introduce children to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in a personal relationship with Him. Calvary Kids meets on Wednesdays (Preschool-5th Grade) and Sundays (Infants-5th Grade).

For middle school aged students, we have our engaging and dynamic Calvary Youth program. Their mission is to help students grow in their walk with Jesus through worship, Bible study, service, and being in community. Meets on Wednesdays and Sundays.

For high school aged students, we also have our Calvary Youth program on Wednesdays. On Sundays we request high school aged students to join us in our main services.

Our worship teams lead all of our services in a genuine worship experience. We encourage congregational singing, as it focuses our attention through participation of our heart, mind and voice to praise the living and true God. Our weekend worship teams primarily play modern worship music, but will also, at times, incorporate well-known Christian hits as well as traditional hymns.
Our church exists as a movement of the gospel of Jesus for all people. Come as you are. For some, this means jeans and t-shirts: for others, a suit and tie. We don’t have a dress code.
Our campus is located right on US-19 just north of Gandy Blvd, only minutes from I-275. Parking is no problem, with over 600 spaces available right on sight. Contact us here if you have any questions.
Feel free to stop by our Welcome Center in the lobby before or after every service. Our Connection Team would love to meet you, give you a gift and tell you a little more about what Calvary has to offer. Planning a visit? Let us know.
