About Our Founders

Bishop Peter O. Ansah and his  Late wife Pastor Theresa O. Ansah are the founders of Calvary Deliverance Christian Assembly. In addition to teaching and preaching regularly at Calvary’s Bronx location, they also oversee Calvary’s satellite church in Jersey City, New Jersey. They have both been called by God to edify, exhort, and comfort the Body of Christ. They are dedicated to teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ wherever the Holy Spirit sends them. Due to their unique passion for lost souls, the Lord has entrusted to them a powerful ministry of healing and salvation.

Bishop Ansah holds Doctorate degrees in Divinity and Electrical Engineering, a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. He has authored three books: Don’t Give Up Until You Get What You Want, How To Step Out Without Fear of Anything, and How To Receive God’s Strength. Bishop was officially ordained as a ministers in 1986 by the late Reverend Dr. Isaiah Jones of the Bronx Pentecostal Deliverance Tabernacle. On November 25, 2005, he was ordained as an Apostle by Reverend John Chappell Ministries. A week later, on December 3, 2005 he was elevated to the office of Bishop. Bishop and his Late wife had four godly daughters until his wife’s demise.


We believe that the Holy Bible is the infallible word of God.We believe in the Triune Godhead: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  We believe that God created man in his own likeness and image to carry out His divine majesty on the earth. However, through Adam’s transgression and fall, man became separated from the glorious fellowship that God intended. It is through faith in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection that man can receive salvation. We embrace the power of the Holy Spirit and believe all spiritual gifts are relevant for Christians to use today.


We are dedicated to helping you discover God’s purpose and plan for your life through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Through teaching and preaching the Word of God as revealed in the Old and New Testaments we equip believers to become more like Christ and prepare them for ministry throughout the world. Our vision is to see people growing to be more like Jesus Christ through a personal relationship with Him. As Christians we will serve our families, church, local and global communities in the love and compassion bestowed upon us by our heavenly Father.
