North Coast Calvary Chapel is a church without walls. We gather in "the locker room" to learn and grow and then we go out into our neighborhoods and the community "on the playing field" to touch and transform people and culture. We share and recycle giving to others and renewing our world.
“You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world.” With these words, Jesus clearly taught the purpose of the church and of individual believers. Salt and light are objects that invade and transform their environment. Christ transforms believers (making us a new creation), and then uses us to transform our world. We are world changers, changed by the love of Christ and changing our world with his love. Transformed by His love, transforming our world with His love.
