A community church in North Andover, Massachusetts


Welcome to the web site of First-Calvary Baptist Church of North Andover. If you are seeking a church home or simply want to visit with us some Sunday, it is our hope that you will find our church a warm, welcoming faith community where the presence of the Living Christ is found in abundance.

Who we are

First-Calvary Baptist Church began in Lawrence, Massachusetts over 150 years ago. Several Baptist congregations merged together over the years to form the church now called First-Calvary Baptist Church of North Andover. In January of 1988 a devastating fire destroyed our building in downtown Lawrence.

After a period of prayer and study it was decided to rebuild in the neighboring community of North Andover. We opened and occupied our facility in 1992.

We are a member church of the American Baptist Churches in the USA, a theologically moderate, yet missionally oriented denomination in the Baptist tradition of about 1.3 million members with churches throughout the country.

Although Baptist by history and tradition, our church membership is made up people from many different Christian backgrounds and we welcome all those seeking a church home or hoping to deepen their relationship with God and God’s people.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
