We invite you to familiarize yourself with Calvary Church. In this section, you’ll find information about where we came from, what we believe and the core people and opportunities that make Calvary Church a unique place where you can become connected!


At Calvary Church, we believe that the following four core values are deeply important in our spiritual lives.

Worship: Actively involved in a personal and corporate encounter with God
Grow: Committed to ongoing spiritual and relational health
Connect: Building a relationship with others and God
Serve: Living a life of service

We strive to center our activities and events around these values because we believe that these are important steps as we grow in our relationship with God.


Calvary Church is one church with three locations. Our main campus meets in Naperville. In an effort to reach even further into the community, two additional campuses offer weekend services and ministry opportunities throughout the week.

Calvary West

Calvary West is an extension site of Calvary Church in Naperville. It is located 15 miles northwest of Naperville in the village of Sugar Grove.

Calvary West is a smaller but growing version of the Naperville campus. It shares the same core vision and many of the same ministries. This church ministers to the surrounding areas of Batavia, St. Charles, Aurora, North Aurora, Montgomery, Oswego, Hinckley and Big Rock.

Calvary West



Calvary Church is a Fellowship of the Assemblies of God that welcomes people from all backgrounds. Calvary is associated with the world's largest Pentecostal denomination—the 32 million-member Assemblies of God cooperative fellowship.

Calvary Church believes that truth is found in Jesus Christ as communicated in the Bible. People can discover their true identity when Jesus Christ is their Savior and Lord.

We believe:

  • The Bible is inspired
  • There is one true God
  • Jesus Christ is fully God
  • Mankind willfully sinned against God
  • The salvation of mankind
  • The ordinances of the church—Water Baptism and Communion
  • The baptism of the Holy Spirit
