History of Calvary Chapel movement

The roots of Calvary Chapel can be found in Costa Mesa, California. A non-denominational Christian church. Calvary Chapel was founded by late Pastor Chuck Smith in 1965. It has been estimated that over 8,000 baptisms were performed in a two year period at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa in the mid 70’s. During that same period, Pastor Chuck Smith and his church were instrumental in bringing 20,000 conversions to the Christian faith. Chuck Smith has come to be known as a leading figure in what is today called “The Jesus Movement.”
