"I had my first encounter with Calvary Chapel in 1993 visiting a friend in California. He took me to hear Chuck Smith and I was instantly hooked on verse by verse teaching. Calvary Chapel Waco started in 2001 with a few families having a desire to know God's Word. Simply teaching the Word simply. We finally completed our affiliation process in 2006 and currently half the congregants are from other Calvary's. We are honored to be apart of such a unique group of churches who teach verse by verse." - Pastor Albert
