  • The word for today/Chuck Smith 9am

    Throughout his ministry, Pastor Chuck always pointed people back to God.  He knew that the church was the Lord’s work and he never accepted the credit for what the Lord had done.  The early years of failure, testing, trials, and discouragement were proof to Pastor Chuck that it was “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit” that the Lord built His church.  All praise and glory belongs to the Lord, now and forever.

    "You have only one life and it will soon be past, and only what's done for Christ will last." - Pastor Chuck Smith

    Pastor Chuck was the founding pastor of the Calvary Chapel Movement. He served to the end when he went home to his Savior in 2013.
