Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church began with the organizing of a Sunday School in a log cabin in April 1892.  The Sunday School was closed in late fall of that year, but was reopened in the spring of 1893.  That year, a revival was held which, together with the Sunday School, led to the establishment of Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church.  Much of Mt. Calvary's growth and success can be attributed to her ministers who served the church with distinction.

The current pastor, Dr. James W. Smith, has led the church since March 1991.  The church as been blessed with many accomplishments under his leadership.  Through his spiritual guidance and direction, Pastor Smith continues to lead the church successfully.  He follows the footsteps of his predecessors by providing enlightened and progressive leadership for Mt. Calvary while seeking to make the church equal to the challenges of the future.
