Good News is our Theme
In a world of bad news, Jesus Christ brought Good News. That Good News is the salvation Jesus Christ achieved for us in His perfect life, His righteous death, His resurrection from the grave, and His ascension to the Highest Throne. Your salvation is not achieved but received. It's forgiveness, a new standing with God, eternal life. All as a gift from Jesus Christ received through trusting Him as your risen Savior, and confessing Him as the sovereign Lord of all creation and your life.
"But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God" John 1:12

Calvary Church of the C&MA (CC-CMA) held its first service in a house in the Walnut Beach area of Milford in July, 1932. Our first name was The Wayside Gospel Mission. In 1944 the congregation moved into their first building in the Devon section of Milford, and then in 1972 to a new building on Orange Avenue across from the Orange Avenue Elementary School. About that time congregants and others began calling it "Calvary Alliance Church," a way to quickly distinguish it from other Calvary Churches in the area. Recently our public name has gone back to the original and legally incorporated "Calvary Church of the Christian & Missionary Alliance" but Calvary Alliance Church still works.
CC-CMA is a part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, which was formed in 1887, and today is a global movement of over 6,000,000. There are over 2,000 C&MA churches in the United States. The C&MA is marked by an emphasis on the Christ-life - depending upon Christ alone for your Christian life - and worldwide missions. Find out more about the C&MA at www.cmalliance.org/

Our God calls us to worship Him in spirit and in truth. Our music is blended, with both longstanding hymns and more contemporary songs. We want to bring out of God's storehouse "treasures old and new" through which we rehear the Good News. We believe in the public reading of Scriptures (I Timothy 4:13) and intercessory prayer. We have a time each Sunday for individuals to express brief personal testimonies of praise or thanksgiving to God. The preaching is expository - that is, exposing what the Bible text says and means and how it applies. The sermon concludes by describing how Jesus is central to the text. The ultimate response to worship is to say "Here am I, send me!" (Isaiah 6:8)
