Mount Calvary Christian Church was born in two separate homes, each desiring more than just a Bible Study. In December 2000, the first structured service took place at a home in Mission, Texas. In March of the following year, God arranged for Mount Calvary to have a real home in McAllen. Under the leadership of Pastor Linda Hill, we painted and carpeted, brought charis and hymnals, made a cross, and opened our doors officially on Palm Sunday 2001.
In early 2002, we were led by the Holy Spirit to move our church to the Harlingen area. We found a small space in the "El Mercado" Shopping Center and held our first service there in June. By early 2003, we were bursting at the seams, and needed a larger location. By the grace of God, we were able to move into a larger space only three doors down from where we were, and when we outgrew that space, we moved across the courtyard into an even larger space. We were still growing, and had standing room many Sundays.
Our Board of Directors knew we had to relocate again. In late 2014, the current location, 401 N. 21st St. became available, but sold. God was working ahead of the Board, to our amazement our current location became available again. During early April of 2015 we signed a lease with an option to purchase, and we moved in later that month. Over the years, God has helped us in so many ways and continues to bless us still through growth, and opportunities to always ultimately serve.
Where we are now?
We have been in our current location for the last three years, and continue to stay committed to our mission of serving our community. An affirmation of our faith is that God has called us forth to continuously serve, learn from Christ, grow, and provide spiritual guidance and support for all. We continue to remain committed to the service of others, and proclaiming Christ's gospel of salvation. We remain humbled by the blessings we receive through time, talent, and donations, and are ever committed to sharing God's love with everyone.
Note: Mount Calvary Christian Church is a non-profit organization. All positions at MCCC are voluntary and are filled by leaders within our congregation moved by the Holy Spirit to lead in their various ministries.
