Our History

Welcome to Calvary Tabernacle, a community of Christian believers whom the Lord has blessed and multiplied tremendously over the years. Our journey started on October 19th 1991, when we had our first service in the Golden Room at the Coliseum Motor Inn in East Meadow. One year later, with only thirteen members, we purchased our first building at 78 N. Franklin.

Today, the Lord has added to the church people of 23 different nationalities and diverse educational background, He has enlarged our territories beyond our borders into an international realm, and blessed us with a spirit of excellence second to none. Our properties now include a Youth Center, A Kids Center, and a Worship Center.  We invite all to worship and fellowship with us in Hempstead where God will certainly enrich your lives.


Who We Are

We are an affirming congregation of the International Bible Way Inc. Bishop Goldson is an ordained minister in the New York Metro District and heads the Canadian Bishopric. His ministry extends beyond Hempstead throughout the United States, the Caribbean, Canada, Mexico, Israel, Philippines, Liberia, South Africa and other countries.

Calvary Tabernacle, the center of Apostolic activity in Nassau County has impacted the Hempstead community in a very tangible and profound way.

We consistently provide counseling services to congregants and to the wider community. We pioneered the establishment of the Academy Charter School where academic excellence is a norm and we host the Annual Convoy of Hope.  These are testaments to the degree to which the church has touched the lives of the constituents of Hempstead.

Through our Annual Tri-State Music event we have provided financial educational scholarships to young aspiring musicians and singers, paved a path for them to perform with nationally recognized artistes and showcase their skills and talents at a national level.  Providing a source of empowerment for our membership through diverse leadership training and Christian teaching, and providing them with life skills to upgrade their thinking and behaviors to come in harmony with the “Mind of Christ” and to live enriched lives.  They have experienced elevation in their faith, family, finances and their hopes for the future.  We can confidently say that God has used all who “Come to Calvary…The Way to God” to be an instrument of blessing to our community.
