WELCOME to Calvary Sayulita! Below you can read a little about how we got started, and above you can see some fotos of both the local community and the ministry here at Calvary Sayulita. Enjoy!
In the book of Acts the Lord called Philip away from an exciting and growing ministry to the desert to minister to one man. While we are by no means in the desert (quite the opposite!), the Lord did take us away from an exciting and growing ministry to begin a new work where there was no Christian church – a spiritual desert if you will.
Sayulita is unlike any other place we have lived or visited in Mexico. It is a quaint surf spot / fishing village / vacation town that attracts Mexicans, Canadians, Europeans, and anyone else looking for some sun and relaxation. So did the Lord really call us to such a cool place like Sayulita? I asked myself, and the Lord, that same question. He gave me Isaiah 42:10 for an answer:
“Sing to the Lord a new song, and His praise from the ends of the earth,
you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you coastlands and you
inhabitants of them!”
So through a series of events that only God could orchestrate, we came here, met people, started a kids Bible class which some parents began attending, so we rented a small store front and started an adults Bible study, put on a VBS in the Summer, did a surf movie outreach with our friends from Walking on Water in the Fall, then on November 1, 2009 we held our first Sunday service!
As our sign on the front of the church says, we are here to know JESUS and to make HIM known. We look forward to watching, and being a part of JESUS building His church here in Sayulita! Come join us as we sing a new song and praise His name from the coastlands!
