Pastor Francis believes and preaches, redemption for the lost is found only in the Gospel of Christ (The death, burial, and resurrection of a living Jesus). His life passage for the salvation of mankind is Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace are you saved saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not of the works lest any man should boast".

"We at Calvary believe that if a person is saved, has been born again by his or her expressed belief (faith) in the passion of Christ, brought to salvation by the grace of God, led by the Holy Spirit, then that person will desire to become a disciple of Christ, which we believe to be a vital part of the ministry of the church", says Pastor Francis.

Bro. Willard's wife Saundra has a heart for God and is a committed co-laborer for the Lord alongside her husband. Saundra is a strong prayer warrior and a woman of faith. They have 4 children: Willard Jr., Sondra Lyn, Jeffery Scot, and Anthony Holdsclaw.

"We believe in the Book, the Blood and the Blessed Hope", says Pastor Francis.
