Welcome To Calvary Old Bridge
Did you know that Jesus Christ LOVES the church?
It’s true! The Bible says that Jesus loves the church, and gave Himself for her! That’s why at Calvary Chapel, we are fully committed to worshiping the one who gave Himself for us.
We seek to know Him through the study of His Word, to worship Him through music, and to be His hands and feet as we serve and give.
Our services begin and end with a time of singing unto the Lord. At the heart of our services is the teaching of the God’s Word. We place a strong emphasis on teaching the Bible verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter, book-by-book to give the truest sense of God’s message to us.
When you visit Calvary Chapel, you will find that we have a specially-designed facility and dedicated teachers who teach your children during each of our services. This way, as you enter our auditorium, you can rest assured that your children are learning the Word of God at their level of understanding.
Most of all, we want to work to connect you to God and His family. The church is not a building, it’s a group of people who love the Lord together. We pray that you will come out to CCOB and meet with God and His family.
- Lloyd Pulley, Senior Pastor
At CCOB, we look to make every part of arriving to church simple so you can just focus on Jesus. That’s why we have our friendly team of Ushers directing traffic at every service. As you come down White Oak Lane, you’ll be met with a smile and some direction about where to park. We use various parking lots on our street and their directions will help you and your fellow churchgoers park as quickly as possible.
