Calvary La Junta began it's life out of what had been for over a century First Baptist Church. After a season of decline, First Baptist saw clearly that they were going to have to close their doors, but believing that God as not done asked for help from Calvary Englewood another church that less than a decade earlier had also been ready to close it doors but who had seen a blessed revitalization over the last 8 years (read their story here). In March of 2016 we began a replanting process as we began our journey towards new life and new ministry. We formally launched in September of 2016 and have been loving La Junta ever since. What had been a declining church with a handful of older folks has now been made to be a growing diverse church seeing to make Jesus non-ignorable in La Junta.
