Calvary Chapel Lynchburg was officially established in August of 1994.
A small group of people had been meeting and praying for a Calvary Chapel Ministry in Lynchburg. They desired the verse-by-verse teaching of the Word of God combined with Spirit-led and Bible-based worship, for which Calvary Chapels are known.
Pastor Troy Warner had been on staff at CC Vista, California, for 4 years and was being led to step out and begin a new work in a new place. After Pastor Troy prayed and sought the Lord for guidance, he realized Lynchburg, VA was the place God wanted to send him, to the small group of people faithfully praying for such a work. On August 1, 1994, Pastor Troy and his family moved to Lynchburg to begin the simple ministry of teaching the Word of God verse-by-verse and chapter-by-chapter, while loving and leading the flock.
Since 1994, God has added to our number and blessed us with many opportunities to serve Him and proclaim the Gospel in our city and throughout the world.
As a church, we believe that the Lord has led us to do 3 things:
1.) Encounter God through Spirit-filled worship and dynamic prayer.
2.) Equip the Saints with solid Bible-teaching and meaningful fellowship.
3.) Evangelize the World through local outreaches and global missions.
By the grace of God and the power of His Holy Spirit, we worship and serve the Lord Jesus Christ in this way. We are grounded in the Word of God and sensitive to His will. We desire to bring the Gospel to the world until the whole world hears!
