Calvary Holiness Church (Philadelphia)


Calvary Holiness Church (Philadelphia)

The Calvary Holiness Church is a small Christian denomination in the pietistic and holiness tradition. It is a division from the Brethren in Christ Church.

The Calvary Holiness Church began in 1963 when the Philadelphia Brethren in Christ congregation (org. 1897) withdrew from the Brethren in Christ, rejecting perceived changes in the denomination's faith and practice. The body incorporated in 1964, and had two congregations with about 40 members in 1980.
