To nurture the spiritual growth of our congregation; to become more Christ-like and to bring others to experience a personal relationship and salvation with Jesus Christ; to respect our cultural traditions that has brought this congregation together while embracing the new that comes with growth of our congregation.
Calvary Presbyterian Church was first founded in 1898 as the Stockton Independent Church by three Japanese American missionaries. We've historically been a church for the Japanese American community, but today we're a diverse, multi-generational community where everyone is welcome. We exist to help people find their way back to God and to reach our local community with the love of Jesus, while helping people to grow spiritually through community, discipleship and mission.
If you are looking for a family, we're a community worshiping, growing, and serving together. A place where you can celebrate and enjoy God’s faithfulness. A place where you can 'put down roots'--to belong, learn, grow, bear fruit and share it with loved ones. And we're a place where you'll have an opportunity to serve as Jesus served, to give back to neighbors and the world.
We invite you to join us at our weekly services at our main chapel, or online through our worship live stream!
