In the late 1960's God poured out His Spirit on Southern California and used Pastor Chuck Smith and Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa to minister to the hippies. Long-haired and barefoot they came by the hundreds to a tent at the corner of Fairview and Mac Arthur Blvd. to listen to middle-aged Pastor Chuck expound on the Bible, chapter by chapter, verse by verse. Out of that grew a whole new church culture, contemporary christen music was birthed, Christian musicians emerged on the scene, Bands like Love Song and Mustard Seed Faith brought a whole new vibe to the church. As God poured out His Spirit on Calvary Chapel a move of God began that is still alive today. Although Pastor Chuck has gone home to be with the Lord, his life passion of raising up pastors who love the sheep and desire to feed them systematically through the Word of God is still going strong all over the world.
We at Calvary Chapel Woodland are very privileged to be carrying on with Pastor Chuck's passion and vision for Calvary Chapel. Our prayer is you would hunger for God's Word, be filled with His Spirit, and worship Him in Spirit and Truth.
