Calvary Chapel Anaheim

270 East Palais Road

Our Church History

On November 3, 1978, after several years of leading home fellowships and church ministries, Calvary Chapel Anaheim was birthed when Pastor Mark Bove and a group of believers were compelled to take a stand for the divine inspiration of the Bible. Thirty people asked Mark to become their pastor and began meeting in a home in Orange. Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel ordained him. The church has been at several locations: Key School in Anaheim, Rossier School in Garden Grove, and the Jewish Community Center at Walton Intermediate School also in Garden Grove. When the City needed to reactivate Walton School, God provided an industrial building in Anaheim near Disneyland, which was transformed into our church home in January 1991. In 1993, after asking God what he could do to help our country, Pastor Mark received God's direction to start CCA Christian School. We are so thankful that Jesus has graciously continued to create ministries within our church body and that many members have been called out to teach His Word, spread His love, and glorify His Name!

The Lord is there. God's love is there. God's word is shared.

My kids have been going here now for over a year now and at first I didn't know what to think because we where coming from a pre school that was really good . So it seemed at first that I was trying to find something wrong all the time because I was still use to the last school. But with time my kids became family. We are good friends with the teachers, they know our kids good . My daughter knows bible verses now . My kids are always being thought the word of God with there school work . You don't need fancy places or fancy buildings to look like it's a good school . All we need is for teachers to love your children and teach them and protect them at school , so place does that for our kids . Thank you to Ms Christina , Ms Elda , Ms Fran , Ms Rose , Ms Sheila and to all the other teachers . Great job ladies !

This is a great church with amazing people who are always willing to help you whenever they are able. From Pastor Marks teaching to all the other pastors and bible studies going on, there is something there for everyone. New people are welcomed with open arms at the church. Nadine has helped my family out many times with whatever we need. Being a big family it is not always easy but she has made it so much easier on our family. I would recommend this church to anyone.
