History of Calvary Chapel El Centro

Calvary Chapel El Centro

Our roots can be traced back to a man by the name of Pastor Chuck Smith. Pastor Chuck was in a denomination that wanted their pastors to do ministry by the leading of the denomination headquarters. Pastor Chuck respected them, but wanted to lean more on the leading of the Holy Spirit than what the denomination wanted. As a result he felt lead to move out of that denomination and moved to California to become the pastor of a church of about 200 people. This church had a board of elders who wanted to run the church and have him be a hireling. He was not comfortable with that, and after much prayer, accepted an offer of a church that had 25 people, called Calvary Chapel.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, and authoritative word of God.

We believe there is one God who eternally exists in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ, the second person of the Holy Trinity, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death for the sins of the world, rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is coming again to judge the living and the dead and to establish God's kingdom of righteousness and peace on the earth.

We believe in the depravity of man. Man, in his essential being, is sinful and incapable of meriting God's favor.

We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith alone in the Person and finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

We believe that the Church exists to worship God, edify itself in love, and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.

We believe that there is a baptism with the Holy Spirit that is subsequent to salvation.

We believe in the perpetuity of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and that the gifts of the Spirit are essential to fulfill Christ's purpose for the Church.

We believe in the sovereignty of God and the free will of man.

We believe in the sufficiency of the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit to supply us with all things that pertain to life and godliness.

We believe in a pre-tribulation rapture of the Church, and the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to the earth.
