 Calvary Temple has a brief but rich history. Calvary Temple was first (Conceived) placed in the heart and mind of then Minister Andre E. Nettles in Feb 1997 in Athens Ohio. After serving faithfully at Zion  Temple COGIC as a Deacon and later as a licensed Minister, under the leadership  of Pastor Noco Walls Sr.; Minister Nettles received military orders to Ohio  University to serve as the Assistant Professor of Military Science. After attending some of the local churches in  an area were there were no COGIC services offered, inister Nettles was compelled to start a  teaching mission, after counsel with Pastor Walls, hence birth Calvary Temple Mission COGIC,  Athens OH.   At the mission minister  Nettles became the spiritual leader to mainly graduate and undergraduate  students attending Ohio University. At  the mission minister Nettles performed his first Baptism Service where he  baptized two undergraduate students in the James River.


 *After Ordination in March of 1998, now Elder Nettles  received military orders to The Netherlands, to serve as Commander, Combat  Equipment Base, in Vriezenveen, The Netherlands. After attending some of the local Dutch  churches where there were no English speaking services available to attend, Elder Nettles was moved by God again to re-established Calvary Temple Mission  COGIC, where he mainly ministered to Refugees from many different African  states (Congo, Kenya, and Sudan) just to mention a few, none of which had  transportation and Elder Nettles drove 45 miles one way every Sunday to pick  up the African brothers and sisters.  With the use of translators Elder Nettles was able to preach the Gospel to many African brothers and sisters. 

*In May 2001 Elder Nettles received military orders to  move to Fort Campbell Kentucky, where he served as the 101st CSG Adjutant. Compelled by God once again Elder Nettles  open the doors of the mission in Clarksville TN. Four months later 911 Terrorist Attacks took  place and Elder Nettles was deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi  Freedom for one year; the doors of the mission in Clarksville, TN were later  closed. Upon Elder Nettles return from the war he and his family joined Word of  Life Ministries COGIC for their remaining four months in the Clarksville  area. Elder Nettles then received orders  reassigning him to Fort McPherson GA, where he served as the 3rd Army C1/G1  Force Flow Planner for all Adjutant General Units deploying to and from Iraq.


 After faithfully serving at Jonesboro COGIC as an associate Elder for about a year; Elder  Nettles could no longer deny the call of God on his life to pastor and  re-opened the doors of Calvary Temple COGIC in locust Grove, GA on 10 September  2005. Two weeks later Calvary Temple join the Fellowship District, under the  leadership of the late Supt. Larry Howard, and Southern Georgia Second Ecclesiastical  Jurisdiction, Headquarters located in Macom, Ga, under the leadership of the  late Bishop Jack Stephens; now Bishop John Wayne Leggett  Jurisdiction Prelate.

On 5 July, 2007 Calvary Temple launched its'  church webpage @ www.CTBOC.com in order to be visible to a larger body of souls in and around the Jenkingsburg area. In August 2007 Calvary Temple became a  Host Site for Angel Food Ministries as part of outreach ministry with a goal to  provide food to needy families in the area and have issued over 600 boxes of  groceries to families.  After the closure of Angel Food Ministries,  Calvary Temple in its efforts to continue the outreach ministry of providing food to the needy became a Host Site for One Harvest Food Ministries.


In Oct, 2016 following the leading of the Lord the church's name was changed to The Calvary Temple Church, and is now conducting ministry as an independent Pentecostal Church. The mission of the Calvary Temple Church is to be the presence of Christ to a lost and dying world.  We pledge our lives to Christ and covenant with each other to demonstrate His spirit through worship, witnessing, and ministering to the needs of the members and community at large.
