history & vision

Our church was formed as a small group of believers in 1991 under the name of Calvary Christian Fellowship. We met together for several years as the Lord added to the church. We became affiliated with Calvary Chapel ministries in the year 2001 which is when the name of our church changed to Calvary Chapel of Apple Valley.

The Lord continued to bless us and add people willing to serve and grow in their personal relationship with the Lord as well as growing corporately as a church. We eventually purchased the building we now meet in each week.

Pastor Gary Malkus, Sr. became our Pastor in October of 2007. He came with excitement and vision. Vision to see the entire body of believer's to become involved in the work of the ministry. We have many people serving in many different capacities in order to be fully equipped for the work of the ministry.

Our goal is to be a force for Jesus in a world that is in desperate need of a Savior. We believe Acts 1:8 "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth" speaks clearly to the direction of our church. As we are filled with His Holy Spirit, we are empowered to be an effective witness for Him to the world around us. This is why we are committed to reach people for Jesus in our community and to the uttermost parts of the earth.
