Calvary Christian Fellowship is located in Paris, Tennessee. The church was established in 1992 after two families from Bethel Fellowship and one from New Boston Amish Mennonite started the church. They were soon joined by five more families from Bethel Fellowship. Bishop Danny Diener from Trinity Christian Fellowship in Arthur, Illinois provided leadership until the church ordained Henry Nissley in 2001. The group met in Bethel's old schoolhouse until 2000, when the New Boston Amish Mennonite Church disbanded and gave their meetinghouse to Calvary Christian.

In 2017 the church was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship and had a membership of 49. The minister was Henry E. Nissley.
